make every move easy, sherf
A county sheriff in Arizona who is currently seeking a Congressional seat has run into a snag. From a story at Huffpo:
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu built a reputation as a rising, conservative star by taking a hardline stance against illegal immigration, attacking the Obama administration and appearing alongside Sen. John McCain in a 2010 re-election ad...
Babeau made his oats by jumping on the anti-immigrant bandwagon, but on Saturday the Sherf confirmed that he is indeed gay, and has been in a relationship with a Mexican immigrant. However, he is denying that he threatened to have the man deported if he ever revealed their relationship.
But that is apparently what the offended lover told all about in an interview with the Phoenix New Times, the underground weekly that broke the story and bolstered it with photos showing the sheriff and his Latin paramour in poses which indicated they were more than just friends.
Needless to say, this is not playing well in conservative Pinal County, Arizona. Personally, I don't care if the guy has a gay lover, or he can marry my sister, marry my horse, etc. But I wouldn't ever vote for some heel that has sex with people and then threatens to deport them if they tell anybody.
