Eugene Delgaudio: Homophobe AND Liar

Yesterday, I noted a nasty image used in a fundraising letter for Loudoun County (VA) Eugene Delgaudio’s anti-gay organization, Public Advocate. It’s a photoshop of a bloody door using rainbow colors:

David Weintraub, president of Equality Loudoun, called out Delgaudio for the violence implicit in the image, his anti-LGBT rhetoric, and in particular his reference to a transgender person as “it”. Now Delgaudio is pushing back, and it’s a wonder his pants haven’t burst into flame.

Delgaudio said the image was originally rainbow colored and Equality Loudoun, a pro-gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender group doctored it to look like blood in another image. He said there is no image with blood that came from his organization.

I swear his nose must have grown an inch. But there’s more:

“This homosexual lobby has been Photoshopping me and everything I’m associated with for my entire time being in public office electronic cigarettes aa battery,” Delgaudio said. “So this is really rich that they would be accusing me of Photoshopping something that I didn’t Photoshop. They forgot that they Photoshopped this. They’re deceiving themselves that I said something  without calling me.”

Yeah, right. Google bloody door and five of the first twelve images look like this (the first one is dated June 17, 2009):

So I guess the “homosexual lobby” created a “rainbow door” sometime before June 2009 and then photoshopped it to look like a bloody door, all because they knew Delgaudio would use the original in a 2011 fundraising letter. Sure. Google rainbow door and, well, let’s just say you won’t turn up any images of rainbow-colored blood spatter.

****

Delgaudio is running for re-election, and his opponent Al Nevarez could use some help to unseat him. If you’re so moved, visit ActBlue to make a donation.

  1. You are the awesome. Thanks for the link.

    It’s clear that the rainbow image was superimposed over the blood splatter image. If you look above the dip where the green is you can see a round red blood splatter from the original image. Because the hue of that part of the blood splatter image was different, their Photoshop tool didn’t capture it. You can’t deny visual facts.

    But our Eugene does that all the time.

    David, you’re so welcome! Eric, I’m no Photoshop expert, but it’s clear to me that Delgaudio is full of crap. I guess his minions might buy his story, but no reasonable person would.
