Today at 2 p.m. the Hon. Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling, Loudoun, Virginia) held a news conference after a 12 noon posting of the ending of a special grand jury proceeding devoted to a complaint against him by a former employee.

Tonight at 7:30 p.m., Delgaudio and his attorney Charles King will, again, be available in the lobby of the government center for any reporters who were not able to make the earlier news conference today.

What: Media Availability
Delgaudio Responds to "No Indictment" Decision

When: Tonight Monday 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Where: Loudoun County Government Center Lobby
Ground floor
One Harrison Street, S.E. Leesburg, Virginia

Why: For reporters who were not able to make 2 p.m. event

At his 2 p.m. news conference Supervisor Delgaudio said the following:

I am thankful this long process is now over.
I want to thank my wife of 31 years, Sheila and my six beautiful children for their support.

I want to thank the people of Sterling who have stood by me, and extended me the privilege of representing them for fourteen years.

If there is a lesson here, it is we should attempt to settle our political differences civilly and through political debate, not by attempting to diminish one's opponent by falsely accusing them of misconduct.

I take great pride in serving the people of Sterling.

I am proud of Sterling and I will continue to work to improve the lives of the residents of Sterling

Attorney Charles King commented on some aspects of the report and said, in part, the following at the news conference.

"Since this investigation began, I have repeatedly said no charges would be filed against Supervisor Delgaudio.

After hearing the testimony of dozens of witnesses and reviewing thousands of pages of documents, as I predicted, there will be no charges filed against Supervisor Delgaudio as a result of the Special Grand Jury's investigation.

Let me reiterate the findings contained in the report. With respect to the disgruntled former employee of Supervisor Delgaudio who originally made these charges against him, the Special Grand Jury concluded "Despite the suspicions, the aide has no absolute proof of wrongdoing." [Report, p. 4]. Also, the Special Grand Jury concluded "there is no solid evidence" of the basic charge of improper fund raising. [Report, p. 6.]
