When a letter by Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio proclaiming he was “exhausted” after “a long day of fighting the Radical Homosexuals” became public on April 1, many thought it was a prank.
“The rumor was being passed around that it couldn’t be real, that it had to be an April Fool’s joke,” said David Weintraub, president of gay advocacy group Equality Loudoun.
“I didn’t think it was a joke,” he said. “I had seen other writings of his. I thought if it was an April Fool’s joke, it was very well done.”
