Just don’t expect an explanation (or apology)

The gang that couldn’t govern straight, aka the all-Republican Loudoun Board of Supervisors, said yesterday that it plans to reverse its recent appointment of wacko right-wing activist Andrew Beacham to the Loudoun Library Board of Trustees. This was after the Washington Post‘s Tom Jackman revealed in a blog post on Friday that Beacham was the guy who ripped pages out of the Koran in front of the White House, was arrested at the Capitol for disrupting the Senate confirmation hearing of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, heckled President Obama at several speeches, and routinely sends out virulent, violent, and obscene anti-gay and anti-liberal messages on his Twitter feed.

Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling), who nominated him, gave an incoherent explanation to Jackman as to why he was withdrawing the already-unanimously-confirmed appointment. Continue reading

Chairman York’s obstruction of justice

The 8-page complaint given to the county in March by the fired aide to Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling), which has finally become available to the citizens whom the government is supposed to serve, offers some revealing details as to why Chairman Scott York (R) was so interested in hushing the whole thing up: in fact he has been complicit for years in Delgaudio’s finagling misuse of public funds and resources, which turned his county-supplied office into a full-time political and personal fundraising machine.

How to bungle an investigation

The very belated scramble last week by Loudoun prosecutor Jim Plowman (R, Needless to Say) to ask the Circuit Court to appoint a real special prosecutor to investigate Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling) for criminal misuse of country staff, resources, and offices for private political fundraising activity is the latest twist in a bizarre series of cover-ups and bungling that has been going on since March.
