Babeu steps down as Romney Arizona co-chairman

Embattled Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who is facing explosive allegations that he and his attorney tried to intimidate a former lover by threatening to have him deported, on Saturday quit his position as an Arizona co-chairman of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.

“Sheriff Babeu has stepped down from his volunteer position with the campaign so he can focus on the allegations against him," Romney spokesman Ryan Williams told The Arizona Republic in a statement. "We support his decision."

Babeu, who also is running for the U.S. House in Arizona's new 4th Congressional District, and his attorney, Chris DeRose, deny the accusations. But Babeu's judgment also is coming under scrutiny for allegedly taking provocative photos of himself and sending them over the Internet. News of the accusations against Babeu first broke Friday in the Phoenix New Times, which also published the photos.

Besides being a Romney Arizona co-chairman, Babeu also recently appeared at a Romney event with former Vice President Dan Quayle in Paradise Valley.

    Nothing like those family values, homophobic Republicans. The GOP continues to re-define hypocrisy.

      Nothing like ignoring the stupidity and ignorance of the left, as if their actions and behavior are something to be proud of. There are enough jerks to go around in every party, so don't gloat.

      Jim Zambelli Typical RWNJ response. If you don't have a valid argument then resort to insult. BTW, don't bother to respond. I usually don't engage in name calling.

      here is an another conservative family value, traditional marrage bla! bla1 bla!------but secect exploitation. Real conservative should not intimidate partner for sex. Real conservative should declare he is a a gay. It is okey to a gay and conservative and Republican. America accepts it.

      Gotta wonder what Mitt is thinking about this guy, his AZ campaign co-chair. Also, you gotta wonder how this guy faced himself every morning in the mirror as he got ready to be the Republican party supporter/sheriff with a secret boyfriend every day. Republicans may have not invented hypocrisy but they've certainly perfected it.

        I could get behind ultra-conservative Republicans if I just weren't so homophobic.
      Danny Carlton · Top Commenter · Owner/Developer at Danny Carlton Web Development · Yesterday at 4:44am
        Okay, let me see if I've got this straight (no pun intended). Because Romney asked a homosexual to be his Arizona co-chair, that "proves" he's homophobic?!? I am constantly amazed at the depths of stupidity American Liberals are able to plunge to.
        Elizabeth Bishop · Northern Arizona University · 23 hours ago
          nice try, the sheriff was in the closet, don't pretend that romney is accepting or was accepting of homosexuality. and i think this is more about the sheriff abusing his status and threatening his lover to keep his secret, so again, how did romney know and no one else?
        Danny Carlton · Top Commenter · Owner/Developer at Danny Carlton Web Development · 22 hours ago
          Elizabeth Bishop Except lots of people knew he is a homosexual, and he only announced it publicly in response to the false accusations in the news article. (unlike Liberals, normal people don't parade their private lives in public) By and large, Conservatives are standing by Babeu's record as a more than competent sheriff, although noting the lack of judgement in posting questionable photos of himself. Not one single Conservative source I can find has offered any criticism of Babeu based on his sexual orientation. Only hypocrite Liberals are doing that.
        Margaret Graczyk · Marygrove College, Henry Ford Community College · 19 hours ago
          Danny Carlton Re: Conservative sources that haven't criticized Babeu's sexual orientation. Answer: But they sure are slipping away from his support base without saying a word. And just wait until the votes come in from his run for Congress. Amazing how one's sexual preference really matters for Republicans and conservatives.
        Danny Carlton · Top Commenter · Owner/Developer at Danny Carlton Web Development · 18 hours ago
          Margaret Graczyk : And Democrats abandoned Anthony Weiner because...? You see, you Democrats are way, waay ahead of Republicans when it come to homophobia and gay-hatred. You have no room for accusing anyone else of anything, because you've already done it all.
        Elizabeth Bishop · Northern Arizona University · 15 hours ago
          Danny Carlton who's accusing anyone of anything exactly? it's called hypocrisy plain and simple. the republican platform is anti homosexual, what are you even talking about? all liberals are evil and republicans are what? just victims? you do not even have a clue as to my affiliation, who says other republicans are not sick and tired of the hypocrisy? and do tell me who exactly knew he was openly gay man? the status of his personal life is not my concern, it is the fact that he fought against illegal immigration while having a relationship with someone who is illegal and then allegedly asked him to lie about it. I'd also like you to give me examples of Liberal homophobia and gay - hatred as you state. You cannot simply say things without backing it up with evidence. Still, nice try though.
        Danny Carlton · Top Commenter · Owner/Developer at Danny Carlton Web Development · 12 hours ago
          Elizabeth Bishop : Apparently you haven't read any other posts here—as well as your own if you think you as well as every other Liberal have not been "saying things without backing it up"

          Babeu's former boyfriend is legal. No one has said any different, even Babeu. Several articles mention that in the area it was known that Babeu is a homosexual.

          That Liberal leap with drooling glee to attack any Conservative that's even suspected of being homosexual is more than enough evidence of their homophobia and hatred of homosexuals.
        Karla Taylor · Aurora, Colorado · 10 hours ago
          Romney did not ask this guy to be his co-chair. He does not handle these things. Has somebody else do this stuff, so he probaly didn't even know about him.
          James Wilk · 10 hours ago
            The issue isn't Romney at all. The issue is this sheriff's hypocrisy. This Republican law-enforcer has worked against the gay community in the past and now it turns out that he threatened a gay ex-lover with threat of deportation. How typically Republican is that? I hope he gets a nice stay in his own jail like your own Arapahoe County Sheriff Sullivan!
          Mitt Romney is a tool · 6 hours ago
            How many hypocritical conservative GOP politicians are going to have to be outed before the party abandons its out-moded positions on who’s allowed to bang who?

          Paul Raymond Babeu, Sheriff of Pinal County, AZ
          « Reply #2 on: February 20, 2012, 12:23:03 PM »
          Sheriff Babeu is originally from Massachusetts (where he more than simply whetted his political chops), but apparently found the Arizona climate more to his liking...

          From a Wikipedia article on him (which seems to undergo revision several times per day at this point):

            Paul Raymond Babeu (born February 3, 1969) is the elected Sheriff of Pinal County in the U.S. state of Arizona. First voted into office in 2008 by defeating the Democratic incumbent, Babeu became the first Republican Sheriff elected in the history of Pinal County.[1] He has received national media attention for speaking out against illegal immigration,[2] the unsecured US border with Mexico, and Operation Fast and Furious gun smuggling facilitated by the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.[3]

            On October 23, 2011, Babeu announced the formation of an exploratory committee to run for U.S. Congress.[4] On February 18, 2012, due to allegations of a sexual relationship with a former male lover, Babeu came out publicly as a gay man. He did this in a major press conference held in front of the Pinal County sheriff office.[/list][/size]

            Phoenix New Times
            Paul Babeu's Mexican Ex-Lover Says Sheriff's Attorney Threatened Him With Deportation

            By Monica Alonzo · Thursday, Feb 16 2012

            Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu — who became the face of Arizona border security nationally after he started stridently opposing illegal immigration — threatened his Mexican ex-lover with deportation when the man refused to promise never to disclose their years-long relationship, the former boyfriend and his lawyer tell New Times.

            Paul Babeu and Jose

            The latest of the alleged threats were made through Babeu's personal attorney, who's also running the sheriff's campaign for Congress in District 4, the ex-lover says.

            He says lawyer Chris DeRose demanded he sign an agreement that he would never breathe a word about the affair. But Jose (New Times is withholding his last name because Babeu and his attorney have challenged his legal status) refused.

              See additional photos obtained from Sheriff Babeu's ex-lover allegedly showing text message communication between the two.[/list]

              The 34-year-old from central Mexico charges that the sheriff's lawyer warned against mentioning the affair with Babeu. DeRose said gossip about Babeu would focus attention on Jose, attention that could result in his deportation, Jose says.

              Melissa Weiss-Riner, Jose's attorney, confirms her client's account.

              She says she spoke directly to the sheriff's lawyer, DeRose, about the Babeu camp's threats that Jose could be deported if he "revealed the relationship." She says DeRose falsely claimed that Jose's visa had expired.

              "Jose came to our firm because he felt he was being intimidated, and he was in fear for his life," Weiss-Riner says. "He wanted his legal rights protected."

              Babeu didn't respond to requests for comment by publication time for this article, but his attorney, DeRose, says the dispute between Jose and the sheriff concerned Jose's work on Babeu's websites. He says Jose was a former volunteer who hacked into a campaign website.

              DeRose didn't immediately address the other claims against him and the sheriff, except to say, "I never threatened to deport anybody" and that "[Babeu's] not threatening anybody."

              Informed of the situation, Nancy-Jo Merritt, a longtime Phoenix immigration attorney, says such a threat would be indicative of an "atmosphere that's been created politically in this state, so that if you get angry at someone who is Hispanic, you immediately jump down to the level of threatening to deport him.

              "If what [Babeu's attorney] says is correct [about Jose's being illegal], either the sheriff had a long relationship with someone he knew was undocumented, while all the time being Mr. Bluster about the border and using it for political gain," or he threatened to deport someone he just broke up with, Merritt says.

              "That's just the worst kind of hypocrisy."

              She adds that federal immigration-enforcement agents have better things to do than "take care of Babeu's boyfriends."

              Antonio Bustamante, a criminal defense attorney and immigration activist, tells New Times that if the allegations against Babeu are true, "To use a position of authority . . . and make legal threats opens a Pandora's box of ethics issues for any law enforcement person or any elected person. In this case, he's both."

              Jose says he met Babeu in October 2006 on, a dating website. What started with an online invitation from Babeu for the two to get together, he says, turned into not only a personal relationship but a professional one.

              Jose says he created and maintained Babeu's campaign websites, his Facebook page, and his Twitter account. Babeu didn't pay him for his online services, he claims.

              Jose says Babeu told him that he loved him and was with him exclusively. But Jose suspected Babeu was lying. The relationship soured, and Jose believes that Babeu sent DeRose after him. He says DeRose demanded the passwords to Babeu's websites and social-media accounts. Jose says he complied but that Babeu and his attorney also wanted Jose to sign a document that would bind him legally to keep silent about the relationship.

              Jose admits that he lashed out on news websites featuring stories about Babeu. He says he commented anonymously that the sheriff was not who people thought he was. He says he once wrote a comment on Chino Valley eNews that Babeu had an account on, where gay men arrange sexual liaisons.

              Jose shared text messages between him and Babeu with New Times. A September 4, 2011, text from the sheriff reads: "You can never have business after this and you will harm me and many others in the process . . . including yourself & your family."

              A couple of minutes later, Babeu followed with: "And you say you have loved me? Papi . . . this is no good."

              Jose responded: "Good threats. Wont work. Im already hurt me . . . and you didn't care."

              Text messages between Jose and Babeu

              They exchanged more texts on September 6.

              Jose: "Dont threat me. Thats illegal. Im just speaking . . . true."

              Babeu: "You have crossed the line. Better get an attorney. You brother will also be contacted."

              The following day, on September 7, DeRose sent an e-mail directly to Jose ordering him to "cease and desist."

              DeRose wrote: "If you are serious about an amicable resolution to this, it is critical that no further offensive actions against my client be taken in the meantime. This should go without saying."

              Jose says that's when he hired Weiss-Riner.

              In addition to the text messages and e-mails, Jose shared letters from Melissa Weiss-Riner to Chris DeRose and photographs of Babeu and of him and Babeu together. He and his lawyer sat for several extensive interviews with New Times over the past month. He says he reached out to New Times because he was tired of living in fear.

              The text messages — many still saved on Jose's cell phone — appear to be sent from Babeu's business cell phone. Babeu identifies himself on his voice mail and says he is the sheriff of Pinal County.

              In a phone conversation with Weiss-Riner on September 12, Jose's attorney says DeRose launched a series of attempts to keep Jose from posting comments and to get him to sign a non-disclosure statement about the relationship. She says DeRose brought up Jose's supposedly expired visa, possible deportation, and threatened a defamation lawsuit. She says DeRose mentioned that Jose's comments were "embarrassing" for Babeu.

              Weiss-Riner responded to DeRose in a September 30 letter: "I'm sure I don't need to remind you that truth is an absolute defense to any of these claims. Therefore, even if my client's alleged comments regarding Mr. Babeu were 'embarrassing,' as you state, they were in fact truth."

              Jose says he contacted New Times because he's had to turn his life upside down to stay out of Babeu's reach. Since the two parted ways, he says, he's moved twice, is looking for a new job, and has spent his life savings to hire Weiss-Riner to defend against a series of claims by the sheriff.

              As for the ones related to the unpaid website work, Jose thought everything was settled after turning over the passwords. The ex-lovers left it that they would discontinue contact with each other, Weiss-Riner says. But several weeks later, after Jose moved into an apartment with roommates — leaving no forwarding address — a Christmas card arrived in his new mailbox from Babeu.

              "It was [Babeu's] way of letting me know that he knew where I was," Jose says.

              Shortly after the card appeared, Jose says he angrily posted more anonymous comments online about Babeu's sexuality.

              DeRose again flew into action, Weiss-Riner says, e-mailing her that Jose wasn't living up to his and Babeu's no-contact agreement.

              She responded to DeRose in a January 17 letter: "My client requested that your client discontinue any and all contact with him. You advised me that Mr. Babeu would comply with that request. However, your client violated that promise and sent [Jose] a Christmas card at his new address. Clearly, your client has no intention of leaving [Jose] alone, but instead intends to continue to harass and threaten him."

              She also wrote that Babeu's continued "harassment and intimidation have caused [Jose] to live in fear. [Jose] has done nothing wrong; he has a right to live in peace without worrying about himself, his family, and his friends."

              Weiss-Riner told DeRose that if Babeu didn't leave her client alone, she would seek an injunction against the sheriff to prevent further harassment.

              She says she had no more contact with DeRose after that.

              Paul Babeu's slick presence and conservative views — particularly on border control — have garnered him national popularity among the Tea Party element of the Republican party. He's frequently appeared on national Fox News broadcasts as a border hawk.

              Babeu's presence on the national stage reached a new high in May 2010, when he was featured in U.S. Senator John McCain's "complete the danged fence" TV ad. Babeu's inclusion was meant to bolster the senator's credibility on border security during a heated Republican primary race against former Congressman J.D. Hayworth.

              In the ad, McCain and Babeu are shown walking along a slatted steel fence delineating the U.S.-Mexican border. The longtime senator asks the first-term sheriff whether the McCain plan is the "right plan" for the border. Babeu says McCain's plan is "perfect." Then, he gives his political nod to McCain: "Senator, you're one of us."

              When Babeu was elected sheriff in January 2009, he made sweeping changes in the Pinal County department, replacing its command staff, and according to the county's website, "implemented high employee standards."

              In January 2011, Babeu fired Pinal County Deputy Louie Puroll, who claimed he was ambushed in the desert by runners employed by a Mexican drug cartel ("Pinalcchio" and "White Wash," September 23 and November 25, 2010), saying the deputy violated several departmental rules.

              Among them was that Puroll had "been abusive in attitude, language, behavior, or conduct" and that he "engaged in conduct, on- or off-duty, that is of such nature that it would tend to bring discredit to the county."

              During the previous year, Jose says, Babeu e-mailed explicit photographs of himself to an anonymous man he met on the gay website.

              Jose knows this because he posed as this man after his suspicions resurfaced that Babeu was cheating on him.

              He shared with New Times photographs that he claims Babeu e-mailed to the anonymous love interest. In the photographs, the sheriff revealed himself shirtless, in his underwear, and naked from the waist down.

              Attorney Antonio Bustamante said Babeu's alleged actions demonstrated bad judgment.

              "To behave in a way that can threaten your own political career, it means that this person is a risk-taker," Bustamante says. The public "needs to know how far [politicians] are willing to go in taking risks."

              Babeu's alleged profile — which since has been blocked — listed him as a "good guy looking for another." He called himself "studboi1," described himself as "str8 acting, hard working and loyal," and said he was openly gay, looking for friendship and "1-on-1" sex.

              Paul Babeu's alleged profile on

              While still in what he thought was a monogamous relationship with Babeu, Jose says, he had stumbled upon the sheriff's page on adam4adam, which is peppered with pornographic images of men having intercourse. He says he confronted Babeu and that the sheriff told him it was an old profile.

              "I told him to delete it because he was the sheriff, and it didn't look right," Jose tells New Times. "I told him that if you don't want [to be with] me, I'll stop helping you with your websites, and you move on with your life, and I'll move on with mine."

              Babeu assured him that he would delete the profile, Jose says.

              When Jose checked again, he says the account still was there — so he created his own profile under an assumed name.

              He says Babeu then sent pictures to Jose, thinking he was a guy named "Matt." In one photo, Babeu poses grinning in a pair of gray underwear in front of a mirror. The flash from his camera phone obscures his left shoulder. In another photo, he poses naked with an erection. His face isn't visible, but the bottom edge of one of Babeu's unmistakable arm tattoos can be seen.

              Paul Babeu's self-portrait

              "When I saw the pictures and was [communicating with] him, I just couldn't believe it," Jose says. "I just wanted to see how far he'd go with his lying."

              In one of more than a hundred explicit text messages Jose provided between Babeu and "Matt," Babeu wrote: "I'm in law enforcement . . . sheriff. Didn't tell you that earlier stud . . . that's why I must be discrete." This exchange occurred while Babeu was attending police-training classes in Denver in June 2010, and he also offered Matt help in becoming a cop.

              Like the aforementioned text messages, these apparently came from Babeu's current cell-phone number.

              In one exchange Jose shared, Babeu texted: "I will suck you off as much as needed."

              After another exchange, Jose (as Matt) asked if Babeu was masturbating, and Babeu wrote: "I'm just leaving mtg and headed home . . . still in uniform."

              Babeu added: "Dude, I can't send naked pics over e-mail . . . just can't for my job . . . you can have me in person and what ever else you want."

              The following morning, Jose says, the sheriff sent explicit pictures.

              At that time, Jose says, Babeu bragged in a text that he was the sheriff who had appeared in the aforementioned TV ad on border security with McCain. That night, he texted Matt that he "just did a TV show in Phx . . .Channel 12 news live."

              The two planned to meet at San Tan Flat, a steak house in Queen Creek, in mid-June 2010, and Babeu texted Matt to bring an overnight bag.

              Babeu was standing in the restaurant's parking lot when he drove up, Jose says. For about two minutes, Jose recalls, Babeu said nothing.

              "He [finally] said he couldn't believe [Matt was really me]," Jose says. Babeu had worried that "maybe it was a reporter trying to catch him," Jose recalls.

              The two wound up having dinner and going back to Babeu's place, Jose says.

              Jose says he and Babeu first met in October 2006, after he got a message on his account from the then-Chandler police officer. That night, the two agreed to meet in downtown Chandler.

              "We were supposed to go to a bar, but we decided not to go," Jose says. "We went to a hotel in downtown Chandler instead."

              The two met several times for dinner and movies from November 2006 to January 2007, and they usually ended up going back to a hotel, according to Jose. With the exception of a couple of phone calls, Jose says, they lost touch until September 2007.

              "We ran into each other at a bar, but he was with someone else," Jose says. "I was surprised. I didn't expect to see him. We started talking again, texting a few times. He was telling me he was going to run for sheriff."

              The conversations turned to Jose's potentially helping with Babeu's political websites, which he soon did. Babeu was elected sheriff in November 2008.

              Jose's suspicions that Babeu was cheating heightened when the newly elected sheriff asked him to make changes to a campaign website to prevent e-mails sent there from going to his political staff.

              His suspicions were confirmed, he says, when he discovered that an enraged spurned lover of the sheriff's was sending e-mails through the site.

              A native of North Adams, Massachusetts, Paul Babeu's first foray into politics was his election to the North Adams City Council at just 18 years old. He later served a term as a county commissioner in Berkshire County, Massachusetts.

              In 1992, Babeu lost a state senate bid in Massachusetts, and he made two failed runs for North Adams mayor in 1997 and 2001. He was headmaster of the DeSisto School in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, a controversial boarding school for troubled teens, from 1999-2001.

              Babeu arrived in Arizona in 2002 and worked as a Chandler cop until he ran for Pinal County Sheriff in 2008 against then-Sheriff Chris Vasquez on an anti-corruption platform.

              When Babeu's deputy, Louie Puroll, claimed in April 2010 that he was ambushed in the desert by Mexican drug runners, it fueled anti-immigration sentiment in Arizona and nationally.

              Babeu became a regular on Fox News and other conservative national broadcasts, touting the Puroll story and bashing President Obama for failing to secure the border and for suing Arizona over state Senate Bill 1070, the stalled law that calls for local police officers to enforce federal immigration law.

              He became the go-to politician for the likes of Fox News on Arizona border security, even managing to outshine Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Indeed, he became known in some circles as the "new Arpaio."

              His chest-pounding over border violence always had included a prediction that his deputies would have a violent showdown in the desert with Mexican drug runners, and Puroll's claim was manna from Heaven for the sheriff.

              Even after it was proved that Puroll had engaged in no such skirmish, Babeu stood behind him. It wasn't until Puroll told a New Times reporter that he had met with a smuggler who threatened to kill the writer — and Puroll hadn't reported it to superiors — that the deputy was fired.

              Undaunted by the Puroll scandal, Babeu has continued to pursue funding to prepare for such showdowns.

              Openly gay Tucson state Representative Matt Heinz was one of two Democratic lawmakers who broke ranks with the party in March 2011 and voted to give Babeu $5 million to combat border violence. Other lawmakers opposed the measure, in part, because Babeu's county is at least 70 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. The measure finally was pared down to $1.7 million and passed by the Legislature.

              About a week after Heinz's nod to Babeu, the sheriff spent the night at Heinz's home, text messages that Jose shared with New Times show.

              "I'm at Mat Heinz and his boyfriend for dinner & ice cream . . . we are going out to bar and . . . to their house. [Am] staying over," Babeu texted to Jose at 1:04 a.m. last April 2.

              Heinz didn't immediately return a phone call seeking confirmation of the sleepover.

              On October 23, Babeu announced that he was considering a run to represent Arizona's newly formed 4th Congressional District, which includes parts of La Paz, Yavapai, Mohave, and Pinal counties. (Heinz announced recently that he's also running for Congress — to fill Gabrielle Giffords' vacated seat.)

              Babeu has since confirmed that he's running, and polls of voters in the extremely conservative congressional district show him with a strong lead over Republican opponents Paul Gosar and Ron Gould — the latter of whom is campaigning on a strong family-values ticket.

                Paulie should just admit he's gay, as people love an honest politician! The Tea Party will surely vote for him! They are so accepting, after all!

                  Who cares if he's gay........he is a big fucking Mexican chasing (in all sorts of ways) hypocrite.

                  Babeu......go away now!

                  Tell me again why we would believe any "report, investigation" he did into Arpaio.....Babeu is a liar all the way around.

                    I've often posted here that Arpaio has a list locked away of everyone he has anything on. What better person to "hire" to perform the investigation for Arpaio. Arpaio says, hey Paul, leave me out of the mix and I won't out you and ruin your political career.

                    So, Babeu does his big investigation and sure enough Arpaio is almost next to exonerated.

                        Arpaio will never come out of the closet because he can't recall why he is in there in the first place.

                        Interesting that his public persona has been so over-the-top ultra-masculine. How many other politicians are routinely described as, and seek to be seen as 'macho,' 'manly,' 'tough guy,' etc? He refers to his preferred deputies as 'studs.'

                        An outstanding specimen of the thought-to-be-extinct subspecies that includes Gen. Edwin Walker, Billy James Hargis, Roy Cohn, etc.

                        He may have felt stuck in the closet in part because his homosexuality complicates his preferred narrative about the DeSisto School, his family background, the Lavigne case, etc.

                        His openly gay brother's partner is also ethnically Mexican, and the mother of his kids is a Mexican national. The term 'Papi' is also used in that relationship.

                          DeSisto School, in the Berkshire Mountains was run by Mike DeSisto. Mr. Mike had what can be called a Messianic Complex. He expected his acolytes to display a religious fervor towards himself. He hired sexual surrogates to help him play out the role as a hetrosexual. My two oldest sons were sent to his enclave for therapy. Mr.DeSisto was a narcissistic, meglomanicial, twisted example of humanity. I can not begin to tell you of all the children that became a suicide statistic while in his care.

                            Thanks for posting. If anything, things got worse after your sons were there. DeSisto hired Babeu the way other men hire mistresses as their secretaries. He had no background in clinical psychology, educational administration, or any other relevant field. Sexual relationships between staff & minor students came to be a part of the culture of the place. This is one of the big other shoes to drop on this story.

                              For those of you that say people against illegals are racist, this proves you wrong. Paul loved this Mexican man. He surely doesn't hate Mexicans. So he isn't a racist. Most people against illegals (including me) are not racist. They are against illegal entry. As for Paul, he is not the family man type that I thought he was. I will not vote for him.

                                Willingness to sodomize an immigrant doesn't, sadly, prove the absence of bigotry. Do you think Strom Thurmond & the legions like him weren't bigoted, just because they had sex with members of the group they subjugated?

                                Babeu's rhetoric never systematically distinguished between illegal immigrants and legal ones. His worst term of abuse wasn't 'illegal,' but 'foreign-born.' He explicitly attacked equal rights for legal immigrants -- thus putting himself at odds with settled Constitutional law. The problem wasn't so much their legal status as the fact that 'they weren't even born here.'

                                        So you want open borders? You want unlimited hispanics coming over, while keeping (as it is currently) a low quota on how many European and Asians we let in? Let's just get overrun with the third world, huh? You don't think too far ahead to see how that will affect the number of our jobs, the types of our jobs, or the level of our societal education, eh?

                                        There already is a HUGE number of hispanics allowed in legally each year, way more than from nonhispanic countries, and they get to bring over umpteen relatives. Just because MORE want to come, doesn't mean they get to. And it's also a problem because with their huge numbers, more and more don't assimilate, don't even learn English. I've met people in their 80s who were born here who don't speak English. Try thinking ahead. Think a new civil war, caused because we get overrun with people who don't assimilate and want to recreate their own country here. We need assimilation. If you don't want to be an American, don't even think of coming here. There has to be a commonality to a country or we won't survive. Melting pot works, but "multiculturalism" destroys countries - just ask France and Germany.

                                                  Remember, during the Pearce recall, Pearce & Co. committed a Class 5 felony by entering a diversionary candidate (Olivia Cortes) into the recall election just so that Pearce could retain his Senate seat. Pearce was booted out with a 12-point margin loss.

                                                  Also, notorious woman-beater Scott Bundgaard resigned from the state Senate only AFTER Aubry Ballard testified she was knocked around by Bundgaard. He clearly knew he was guilty.

God only knows what happened there. It's only a matter of time before other men and boys come forward about their sexual encounters with Paul. So sad.

                                                    get a life. You can't say he was going after kids simply because he is may be gay. It's like saying a principle of a normal school was a pedophile because they were straight and going after girls. Get a life.

                                                      Another Rump Ranger! How does Babeu feel about gay marriage? As a congressman, would he support it or not? As a Far right republican, would he support it or not?

                                                      Who cares? Sounds like Babeu's lover was the stalker! You would have to be blind to not know Babeu was gay! What I can't understand is how Babeu could stand McCain and Romney, that is just fucking wrong!

                                                      So, when did the Phoenix New Times interview Babeu on this?

                                                        I just hope he tries to say he isn't gay. Hey dkephart, what are the odds of a story coming out of that boarding school? I say 3:1.

                                                            You know, the problem is not that Babeu had an undocumented immigrant lover. It's not that Babeu appears to be gay. Frankly, if the guy was a private citizen and New Times published this about him, I'd be all over New Times about invasion of privacy. Thing is, Sheriff Paul Babeu is not a private citizen. He is a prominent elected official in south central Arizona.

                                                            This is what it IS:

                                                            1) Babeu is a rising star in the GOP, which hates on illegal immigrants and gay people. (Indeed, Babeu was a speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference just last weekend, a veritable festival of anti-gay and anti-immigrant fervor.)

                                                            2) Babeu himself was quite strident in his defense of some of the worse aspects of the anti-immigrant people, including "build the fence now" (when there's no indication a fence would have the desired effect).

                                                            3) Babeu was quite willing to use the threat of his office to have his former lover picked up for deportation.

                                                            So what we have here is first, a flaming case of hypocrisy and second, threats. From the highest-ranking law enforcement official in Pinal County, the guy who was selected to give Sheriff Joe Arpaio a clean slate.

                                                            tl;dr: I have no idea why I'm wasting my time spelling all this out for you but I did.

                                                              I think Paul Babeu should be challenged on having a Illegal Mexican Lover and he knew about it and on top of that is all over Imagration border issues in the state. It's clear to all this sheriff is gay when his photo is posted on a GAY site in his underwear! OMG! Who does that stuff! I'm even amazed he is republican since that party has sooooo many issues with Gay Americans. What's sad is that there are so many other Gay Americans who are ashamed of who they are for the same reasons and this man is unable to be honest with who he is by threatening others to Shut-UP or ship you back to Mexico! It's simple...Abuse of Power or Position as a Sheriff if all these aligations are true! Shame!

Namely, that — amongst a trove of alleged other abuses of power — folks would do well to take a closer look at what was going on during her brother's tenure at DeSisto School.

However, posting graphic and/or suggestive pictures of himself is rather pretty lame and does not honor the position of Sheriff or create respect for the law. Since Babeu is a Republican, it seems a bit strange that his party would worship him in the future. But if he is messing around with an illegal immigrant, his whole position on the issue is dishonest and demonstrates that he is only saying what his followers want to hear.

                                                                              They pulled this with California congressional candidate Meg Whitman and her 'poor wittle iwwegal awien' housekeeper banking 50 thou a year as a year cleaning lady, an freaking illegal, remember that?

                                                                              It worked, she disappeared into Gloria "I Hate Allmen" Allred's stable and they could be implementing it here. Seems familiar. These leftists are so close to the prize and so desperate seeing what Obama's gotten away with, and as a result they're more brazen than ever and they'll do anything.

                                                                              In fact many feel the law enforcement isn't even out to get them they're so comfortable here now because they're not with this guy, (Obamadinejad) and his claim to have deported more than Bush is a flat out lie. Bald faced Obama special lie, he throws em around like Pygmies chuck spears.

                                                                                obviously i'm talking about his sister Lucy Babeu.

                                                                                the way the sheriff has tried to bully and threaten jose to keep quiet sounds just like how lucy has described on the blog how he's threatened her to keep quiet. and by her accounts there's a lot more that she knows that the good sheriff wants her to keep quiet about. and this lawyer of babeu's, who's suppose to be of such high integrity, as one commenter suggests. well, he sounds like a "sheister" to me. as a lawyer, how could he not know or find out if jose is in the country legally or not. and if he knows jose is legal then there goes his "lawyer integrity" out the window. he's just as dirty as his client, the sheriff. trying to use their professional positions and authority to disenfranchise someone of their legal rights. not to mention, how could he not think that jose's lawyer wouldn't know whether jose is legal or not. almost sounds as though babeu's lawyer isn't competent.

                                                                                so, let's see now. what will happen to his run for congress. there's a good chance his conservative constituency will elect him anyway. many of them won't care that he's dishonest. they will ignore that this sheriff's extremely risky behavior, as a sheriff, is likely to surface again as a u.s congressman. after all, he's demonstrated this behavior ever since his days in north adams, ma. at the disisto school with the students. he'll do it again. he can't stop.

                                                                                three cheers for lucy babeu.

                                                                                a hundred cheers for lucy.

                                                                                enough said!!!

But if this is just a smear campaign, and if anyone thinks that Republicans will be turned off because he might or is gay..... GET REAL! Until I know the FACTS about the whole case, I will not judge. HOWEVER I do not CARE one bit was his sexual preference is, not do I care what sights he looks at, what he does on his FREE time! I just know that I sleep better at night knowing he is working hard to protect America!

                                                                                      FBI - step in to this mess. Babeu needs to be indicted for threatening deportation of a lover he thought was A-ok during the relationship. So much for a moral compass.

Guess he looked the other way when the boyfriend was giving head. No calls to the MCSO hotline on this illegal? Any business or person who greases Arpaio's butthole don't get investigated - tip or not. The many Car Wash companies, car companies and local businesses that hire undocumented workers are overlooked if they meet Arpaio's criteria - $$$$$$$$ in the pocket.

They all tend to be screwed up due to the home they grew up in (having a religious zealot father). They are a "feral family" that left North Adams after wearing out their welcome. They didn't come here for the weather.

Paul and Shaun are #10 and #11 of the kids. Paul and Shaun have lived most of their adult lives together in the same homes. Forthy years and there ain't something funny going on there?

                                                                                            Let Lucy take a break. She shared here for years. You laughed and scoffed. She has lost a lot at the hands of the rest of the family. She is easy for Paul to tag as being "mentally disturbed." She has told sick stories of rape and incest and brutality and substance abuse within the walls of their home. The family needs her to be quiet and keep the family's private life private. Sounds just like Paul now, doesn't it.

                                                                                            This article is just the tip of it all. When it is all over, maybe Lucy will be the one looking normal as you begin to get exposed to the rest of the family and their uniquenesses. Lucy never faulted him for being gay, only for not being honest about his gayness.

                                                                                            Wait for the rest of the family to file out. It will be a side show.

                                                                                                Second, truth is an absolute defense to libel or slander. I'd say that New Times has a lot of very suggestive evidence.

                                                                                                Let me repeat that second point, in case this was too hard for you to understand the first time: TRUTH is an absolute defense to libel or slander.

                                                                                                If Paul Babeu has a problem with New Times' reporting, there are the courts. He can sue New Times, get depositions, etc. However, that also means New Times can depose him.

If he's willing to misuse county property, what other improper uses of resources is he engaged in? Were Sheriff's Office resources used to investigate, threaten and intimidate any lovers he disagrees with? My guess is that Babeu has been abusing funds and resources from the SO for a long time...and it's just now coming to light.

Babeu's campaign manager when he ran for sheriff was Cheryl Chase. After he was elected, she was put on his staff (catchy term for him) as a Director II, a paid, at-will PCSO position and remained as his campaign manager. In August 2010 Chase lost her driving privileges with MVD. Since then, she has been driven to and from work by sworn deputies or supervisors.

                                                                                                  Now Babeu's chief deputy Steve Harris wants to run for sheriff and Babeu is his campaign manager. Cheryl Chase wants to run for board of supervisors and Babeu is her campaign manager. The apologists point out the great job he has been doing. He is never there!

                                                                                                  Babeu's problem is not being gay. Babeu's problem is being Paul Babeu. Pay attention when you are looking in the mirror at yourself, Paul. And get ready for the others that are not longer threated by him and will soon start to contact media sources.

I asked an elderly relative and registered Republican last night about that--"what do you think AZ Republicans are going to hate more about this?" He said, "Oh, the illegal immigrant thing for sure."

It is not about Paul being gay. It is about Paul threatening and intimidating people. There are many more past lovers of his that hopefully will come forward that he has done the same thing too. Also, Paul and his lawyer have already started spreading false rumors about me because they are afraid about all the family secrets coming out. This will be next. He has told all my sisters not to talk to me and my father won't let me talk to my mother on the phone per orders of Paul. Sorry Paul, all names will be released and all family secrets. You better put your pants on. Lucy Babeu

What about any other abuses of the resources of the office?

Being gay is a private matter, and Babeu's preferences don't bother me. What DOES bother me is that a law enforcement officer who advertises the size of his penis and memorializes himself on a website in his underwear with an erection goes beyond personal preference. It is conduct that is unbecoming of a law enforcement officer. If AZ Post does NOT address his certification, and quickly, this issue will become even messier. I believe we should ALL demand that AZ Post investigate Babeu for this conduct...................

His Lawyer and him have already started rumors on me because he knows I am going to tell all the family secrets. I am not afraid of all of Paul threats and my father's. Paul is nothing but a bully. He needs to be stopped because he uses his position as Sheriff to intimidate people. Paul is not about being gay, he is about using males for sex and tossing them aside. He has too many male lovers to count. This is just the beginning. Have a nice night. Lucy Babeu

                                                                                                          How many men are womanizers, sleep with one a few times, dump her, and move on? Many. Unfortunately, if Paul is doing this, it's because he is a male, not because he is gay.

My brother Peter and his two kids from CO were there. Peter raped two of my sister and admits to it. Paul does not care, he brings him along. Look at the amount of money he spent on that trip. Paul lies and says that financially the Sheriff office is fine, when they are a couple million in the hole.Paul has no clue about how to manage money. My parents names are in bankrupcy court because they have supported Paul and Shaun their whole lifes and they have never gave them a penny back. Paul does not care about the taxpayers money only about himself. He will leave the Sheriff Office a mess. There are so many abuses of resources I don't even have time to mention them right now. People have been blogging about it on newszap. Have a nice night. I am truely sorry for what Paul has done to the community and taxpayers. I have tried my best to get the word out. Best regards, Lucy Babeu

Perhaps those who are interested in monies that may have been misappropriated will speak up and put the pressure on. Audits are done all the time. Perhaps this one is long overdue.

I guess it makes DeRose an honorary member of the family, but I wonder what else they're blaming on her.

                                                                                                                As Chris Spitzzeri, DeRose had a reputation for sleazy politics in Illinois, but this is contemptible even by his standards. His wife & family must be proud.

However with there connections they can take away someone with a college degree, U.S.P.T.A. Tennis Association, Wilson Contract for a false arrest in a blink of an eye. That happened to me by a Sheriff Anthony Rogers. Be careful of these non educated Sheriff's. They ruin innocent lives for power, money and control. Just look at this guy!!!

The dude's 43. And advertising himself as "StudBoi1" sort of casts a whole new light on his habit of referring to his preferred deputies as "studs." Is there a "StudBoi2"? When he complained that President Obama was "kicking" him in "the ding-dong," I didn't expect him to whip it out (7'' Cut) and brandish it in public. Say what you will about Arpaio or Pearce, but they never insisted on talking about their genitalia.

They should be at-will employees who are hired by the County government. We don't elect police chiefs. If a professional law enforcement office was serving as the Officer in Charge of the PCSO, more than likely Paul would be a patrol officer and would have his own blog, but would not be a media star bloviating about his ability to catch illegals and building fences on the border.

Over $100,000 of the Justice Foundation funds are missing. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in drugs, cash and guns are missing from his evidence room. You hired several friends that are paid to do nothing. You've been terrorizing Pinal and its citizens since you moved here. A dozen of your best officers are paid to stay at home because they don't fear you and the rest of your officers live in fear and until now no one has cared. I say this will pass as everything else you do does you little prick!

You want to do that to your girlfriend, and have the girlfriend do the other to you, but oh don't faint!, if another man wants it done by another man, the acts themselves are disgusting!!!!! Get a clue! You're no different than the gay man, the gender of your partner is just different! Same sex acts!!!!

Most recently for spending $35,000 of RICO funds for jewelry when he has been claiming for a couple of years that his deputies cannot afford adequate guns.

                                                                                                                                                          If Babeu did threaten the man, then he deserves to lose his job.

                                                                                                                                                          If all really proves to be is some noise between lovers, well then it is tawdry but none of my business and not deserving of news coverage.

                                                                                                                                                          Phoenix New Times has done some outstanding investigative journalism in the past. At the moment, all that is in their story are a lot of suggestions that something improper happened. No solid evidence is presented.

                                                                                                                                                          Yes, the photos look like Babeu. Yes it is all quite incriminating of Babeu being gay and rather reckless considering his position in politics.

                                                                                                                                                          No, the story supplies no hard evidence of a crime or a major ethical lapse.

                                                                                                                                                          Therefore all that I see in this New Times story is a whole lot of wrong headed reporting. So far I see the New Times throwing monkey poo.

                                                                                                                                                          This could change. If they print something solidly linking Babeu to a threat, the color of the entire story changes and it all becomes fair game.

                                                                                                                                                          From what's there at this moment, it isn't a fair piece of reporting at all.

Thus whether the Sheriff is gay or not is not my concern nor my business.

                                                                                                                                                                    This sounds like a publicity stunt unless there is real evidence this is all verified and documented to be true and that it was THE Sheriff did "order" Jose to be quiet thus an abuse of authority of his position as an public officer. If you are going to jump on this bandwagon, you must have your ducks in a row and so far, anyone could have been in "Jose's situation" and make it all up since he admitted all those things he did to lay the groundwork to discredit the Sheriff and admitted it. You must question the offense or motive first, then the inquisition, then the evidence without bias then the facts..... a lot is missing here ~~

He will most likely be brought back on temporay active duty because of his status as an Officer. He will have to be debriefed to determine if his status compromised the United States. Babeu is in a world of shit. His claims of being green lighted by the mexican cartel could have been a diversion. All because he wanted to get a piece of the mexican culture.

                                                                                                                                                                      I being honest, someone in the military is initiating a SSI ROI which will be read by the Army Chief of Staff by COB today! Chief of Staff will inform the Chairman, who will inform the SECDEF. Maybe he can give the SECDEF a nice commander's coin.

It's kinda sad really, they would be much happier if they were open and didn't have to hide.

This is why Babeu failed to report the truth in the MCSO's investigation. Babeu is done. His military retirement may fad away, not for being gay, but conduct unbecoming of an Officer. Photos were taken prior to his retirement. You pissed off the Commander in Chief for the last time Babeu. Babeu, given the President one of your coins and maybe he will forget the whole thing ever happened.

                                                                                                                                                                          (1) If the Bald Bunion of Pinal County was/is gay, so what? That's no one's business.

                                                                                                                                                                          (2) SInce it appears he abused the power of his office, he should be a part of the USAO's abuse-of-power investigation into the Flaccid Failure, Henderbulk, Candy Andy Thomas and Aubuchon.

                                                                                                                                                                          (3) Threatening someone, regardless of their immigration status, about being gay (something that would damage Buffoon politically) then he is guilty of witness intimidation and tampering with a witness. The Bald Bunion has learned really well from his hero, mentor and savior the MCSO shurf.

                                                                                                                                                                          (4) I predict the Bald Bunion will lose his congressional race.

The guy says that he created a fake persona to monitor and stalk Babeu. He trashed the campaign websites. He left anonymous comments at different websites to hurt Babeu.This story broke because Babeu got tired of this nut and took legal action. Phoenix New Times is pro-illegal alien and took this opportunity to try and take down Babeu.

                                                                                                                                                                                                The problem with Babeu is he is a good guy who had too much patience when he was dealing with this psycho.

                                                                                                                                                                                                It is hard to take Ms. Alonzo's journalistic capabilities seriously with this one sided story.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      SHERIFF PAUL BABEU 1 Year, 7 Months ago
                                                                                                                                                                                                                      This is a question I would like to ask Paul and pose to the people on the forum.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                      As Paul sister, I know for a fact that he is gay, our 9 other brother and sister's know. My parent's too and everyone wants it kept a secret. This has caused great damage to family ties and relationships amongst us. The reason being is Paul and our family all know he has lived with many different men, and we have all met them. Some very young as 18, which when he was running for mayor in North Adams and him being 32 and this boy was his former student at Desisto, we all thought it was inappropriate. I told Paul so, but he did not agree. (This is first hand information and should not be deleted.) He lived at willow St. in North Adams, Ma. if you want conformatiioin to this time. In Az, he lived with a lover at his present house where he lives with his brother Shaun, for six months and then Paul kicked his lover out. His ex-lover moved in with my sister Veronica in florence for a year because he was friends with her. This Paul was angry about, too close to home.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I just think if Paul was open about his lifestyle, it would not cause problems in the family. I have many of his ex-lovers calling me, because they are angry because Paul dumps them after a few months and never returns their phone callls. What am I suppose to do? I don't talk to him anymore because he lied about things in my life so he wouldn't be exposed for being gay during his bid for sheriff. Some people may think that this is his own personal business, but it is not, when it effects other people's life's. I think people would still want him as sheriff, he just couldn't be in the military. Unless, he stood up for gay rights like he should. Is Paul a liar and a hypocrit? Maybe Sheriff Paul is just out for himself? You decide, I am just asking him to be who he really is and stop the secrets and the lies. How about you?
                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Paul, Do you think you with ever tell the truth, or are you going to have people attack me and tell me I am crazy or have me deleted from here? I would rather come out of the closet and be who I am,and have people respect me, than lie to them and betray my followers about who I am. Is it that important to you, that you are willing to lose people in your life that loved you and truely cared, to just get ahead? For what? To fall in the end? Because, that is what is going to happen! Good luck with your fake identity! When will the real Paul Babeu stand up!

How lucky we are that no men do that to women. Oh, wait, that's what womanizers do!!! To his sister: Your brother is a slut, as many men are.

Sounds like she may have a personality disorder.

What bothers me is that he shows lack of judgment , he cheated on his boyfriend and then tried to use his position to silence his ex boyfriend. Babeu shows he is not an honest person.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          We asked if Babeu had any statement about the dating profile pictures posted on the New Times Website. Babeu's attorney said: "No. He believes he'll be judged by his record.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Well Jester it is looking like he is not honest with anyone and has a huge lack of judgment. A guilty dog barks the loudest.

I don't think he realizes how quickly his 'friends' in the teaparty and conservative GOP'ers will turn on him. If you want to have a 'private life' you don't go into politics or use your position to threaten others. Unless you are Arpaio of course.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Looks like only about 400 or so Republicans it's obviously a work in progress.

Jose, I hate to say this, but you have no legal rights. You are illegal and I for one am extremely tired of the game. You want American rights, do it the right way and go home and get back here the legal way. We Mexican-Americans are tired of the scrutiny from everyone else because of people like you.

It says nothing about Jose's Visa or lack of one. It says nothing of the Constitution, or about ones rights while on "US SOIL" .

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      We' re all cool with Jose here - don't care if he is "illegal" or not. Some of us could care less.
