A prominent Republican fund-raiser who once said former President Bill Clinton was "a lawbreaker and a terrible example to our nation's young people" pleaded guilty yesterday in Baltimore Circuit Court to production of child pornography.
Richard Anthony Delgaudio, who was sentenced to two years' probation before judgment, admitted to taking lewd photographs of a 16-year-old girl he met in East Baltimore's Patterson Park in 2001. In some of the photos, he was engaged in sex with her, court records show.

Delgaudio, 50, of Burke, Va., is a frequent talk-radio guest and national figure in conservative politics. He is president of the Legal Affairs Council, a group that helped pay the legal bills of former Reagan administration officials Oliver L. North and Caspar W. Weinberger after they were charged in connection with the Iran-contra affair.

In his pornography case, there was additional evidence that Delgaudio took erotic images of at least one other, younger teen-ager, but that evidence was not admissible in court because police improperly stopped and searched Delgaudio, a judge ruled.

Largely because of that, prosecutor Adam C. Rosenberg offered Delgaudio a plea agreement, rather than taking the case to a jury.

"This is a satisfying outcome because it ends a lot of legal issues," Rosenberg said.

In yesterday's ruling, Judge John M. Glynn ordered Delgaudio to stay away from Patterson Park and the neighboring Butchers Hill area. The judge also publicly acknowledged Delgaudio's humiliation.

"Mr. Delgaudio has been very active in the state of Virginia and around the country. He was a respected member of the community," Glynn said. "This type of thing is a mortifying experience."

Delgaudio thanked the judge for his "good work." He is not able to appeal because of the conditions of the plea agreement.

After the hearing, Delgaudio - who is also an author of political books - refused to comment about his case.

In a letter to the judge, Delgaudio's attorneys - Bruce Fein and Howard L. Cardin - wrote that he was remorseful and did not know the girls were underage.

"He acknowledges the acute moral shortcomings of his conduct, and he will continue intense self-examination and professional and spiritual counseling," the lawyers wrote in the letter, dated yesterday.

Cardin also said he did not want to speak about the case after yesterday's hearing but described his client as "brilliant and eloquent."

Delgaudio, who has no prior record, was arrested in November 2001 with a book of obscene photographs he had taken of 15- and 16-year-old girls, according to court documents. The teen-agers went with him on several occasions to a hotel on Pulaski Highway, where they had sex and he paid them to pose in erotic positions for his camera, records show. The girls told Delgaudio their ages, according to police.

As part of his restitution to the community, his attorney said Delgaudio would contribute $5,000 to "young mothers who are in distress and in need."

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

So is ex-UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter.

There are a lot of people who fit that definition if the bar is set at 16 (and let me point out that I believe it should be set at 16, perhaps even at 17), so it is no surprise some of those people are also involved in politics -- the law of averages tells us so.

I just find it amusing that the people who are the quickest and loudest in passing judgment on the moral character of others are themselves often guilty of abuses even worse than the people they upbraid. I think it's a point that bears repeating, even though it has been made before, in order for people to maintain proper perspective and understand that words rarely coincide with actions, that self-knowledge is in short supply, that people are largely corrupt, and that anybody who loudly claims to occupy the high moral ground is automatically suspect. That's my point.

A second, subsidiary point is that this is especially ironic in light of recent remarks by GOP senator Santorum basically denying peoples' rights to consensual sex with adult partners of their choice. And Bush and the rest of the party have generally neglected to take him to task for that, have gone so far as to say supportive words for Santorum. And I'm sure if this pedophile hadn't been busted he would have been mouthing the same lines in the same sanctimonious terms. So, as far as I'm concerned, the GOP and "the Moral Majority" can take their hypocritical stance on human sexuality and shove it far up their white, flabby asses.
