WP: Grand Jury Forming in Delgaudio Inquiry

According to the Washington Post, the investigation into wrongful use of staff aide is moving to next phase.

Investigators looking into allegations from a former aide of Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R) that he required her to conduct campaign related calls while working in the Sterling supervisor’s office have begun forming a grand jury panel, according to a story in the Washington Post today.

The post reported that two people confirmed being questioned for the panel.

Delgaudio’s aide accused the supervisor of requiring her to set up campaign fundraising calls while on the supervisor’s county office payroll. Delgaudio has denied any wrongdoing, saying that the only fundraising he intended was for a local youth sports league. Delgaudio's attorney has called on critics to wait for the results of the investigation.

Critics have accused the Loudoun Board of Supervisors’ leadership of failing to act when the accusations were initially brought to their attention. County Chairman Scott K. York (R-At Large) at one point acknowledged that he should have handled information handed over to him differently, and that he did not immediately turn it over to prosecutors.

In response to the accusations, Delgaudio was stripped of his committee assignments on the board during the investigation, a move for which he, too, voted.
