Supervisor Eugene A. Delgaudio (R-Sterling) intensified efforts to connect his job as an anti-gay activist with his work as an elected official this week, prompting a sharp response from a board colleague and school officials.
Delgaudio is executive director of Public Citizen of the United States, an anti-gay lobbying group that has spent millions of dollars on a nationwide campaign that has often vilified gays as pedophiles and rapists.
In comments from the dais at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting, drawn from an e-mail to his supporters, Delgaudio offered an inaccurate characterization of county educational efforts, sparking a unusually blunt, bipartisan response.
