Loudoun County Board of Supervisor member Eugene Delgaudio (R) has been in a lot of hot water this year — and it doesn't seem to be cooling off anytime soon.
On Wednesday, WTOP reported that the Sterling representative has been accused of improperly directing his county staff to solicit campaign contributions.
Former part-time aide Donna Mateer told The Washington Post that she spent most of her time calling potential campaign donors. Delgaudio has denied doing anything wrong and the FBI is currently looking into the situation, the newspaper reported.
Attempts by Patch to reach Delgaudio Wednesday for comment were unsuccessful.
Back in March, members of the Loudoun County Democratic Committee requested that Delgaudio step down from the board of supervisors. The request came after members of the LCDC discovered the Southern Poverty Law Center had labeled Public Advocate of the United States, for which Delgaudio has served as executive director since 1981, a hate group for its anti-gay views.
Delgaudio rejected the request and was later the subject of a protest by the same group outside an event that he hosted back in June.
It is unclear what the future holds for the current representative who began his fourth term on the board earlier this year.
