Public Advocate, an anti-gay group led by Virginia politician Eugene Delgaudio, has written a protest song, which mentions Jerry Sandusky and child abuse, to condemn Ernst & Young CEO James Turley’s attempt to overturn the Boy Scouts of America’s ban on gay members.
Delgaudio currently represents the Sterling District on the Loudoun County, Virginia, Board of Supervisors. His organization, Public Advocate, was designated in March of this year as a 'hate group' by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Turley, whose accounting firm has welcomed gays and lesbians in its own work force, is the first member of the Boy Scouts' Executive Board known to publicly disapprove of the policy.
Turley has said in the past: "I support the meaningful work of the Boy Scouts in preparing young people for adventure, leadership, learning and service, however the membership policy is not one I would personally endorse."
