Rising Republican star and well-known border hawk Sheriff Paul Babeu, who’s now running for Congress in Arizona, was hit Friday night with bombshell accusations from a Mexican immigrant who said he dated the sheriff for years and was threatened with deportation if he ever told anyone about their romance.

The Phoenix New Times (http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2012-02-16/news/paul-babeu-s-mexican-ex-lover-says-sheriff-s-attorney-threatened-him-with-deportation/) newspaper broke the story (http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/2012-02-16/news/paul-babeu-s-mexican-ex-lover-says-sheriff-s-attorney-threatened-him-with-deportation/) on its website in a piece written by veteran journalist Monica Alonzo. The accusations came complete with text messages said to be between the two men as well as compromising photos purportedly of Babeu that are reminiscent of recent sex scandals that ended the careers of Congressmen Anthony Weiner and Chris Lee.

In one photo, Babeu is seen posing in front of a mirror in nothing but his underwear. In another, he has his hand inside the man’s partially unbuttoned shirt.

By Saturday, the accusations were already taking a toll on the sheriff. With the Republican presidential primary in Arizona a little more than a week away, the campaign of frontrunner Mitt Romney announced (http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entries/babeu-stepping-down-from-role-with-romney-campaign) that Babeu was quitting his role as its Arizona co-chair.

“Sheriff Babeu has stepped down from his volunteer position with the campaign so he can focus on the allegations against him,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told TPM. “We support his decision.”

The New Times identified the accuser only by his first name, Jose, citing his fear that the sheriff would try to challenge his immigration status.
Jose said he met Babeu through the dating website gay.com (http://gay.com/) in 2006, before he became sheriff, according to the newspaper. Babeu was a police officer in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler at the time and was elected as sheriff of Pinal County in late 2008.

Beyond the romance, the newspaper also said Jose volunteered for Babeu’s campaign, maintaining his websites and social media accounts.

They were apparently together during Babeu’s fast rise to becoming a national figure in the fight against illegal immigration. The sheriff first burst onto the national stage in 2010 when he appeared alongside Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) in a now-famous television ad, calling on the federal government to complete “the danged fence” along the US-Mexican border.

More recently, Babeu has been a frequent guest for Fox News for immigration-related topics, including the ongoing Fast and Furious scandal. He has endorsed Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential primary, and touted as a co-chair of the candidate’s presidential campaign in Arizona. He even recorded robocalls for Romney that went out to voters in Iowa last year.

Jose told the New Times, however, that their relationship went sour in just the past year when he began to suspect that Babeu was using a website for casual hookups. Jose said he began to lash out at Babeu with anonymous web postings, and that’s when things really got ugly.

He said the sheriff sent a lawyer after him. The lawyer claimed Jose’s immigration visa was expired and told him he faced possible deportation if he ever went public with the relationship.

Jose told the newspaper that he was going public now because he was tired of living in fear.

In an interview late Friday with the Arizona Republic (http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2012/02/17/20120217pinal-county-babeu-threatened-ex-lover-article-claim.html), Babeu declined to discuss whether he had a romantic relationship with Jose. But he acknowledged knowing him and denied the accusations that he ever threatened him.

“That never happened,” Babeu said, according to the newspaper. The rest, he said, he was going to keep to himself. “My personal life is exactly that.”

I was just thinking, it's been a while since we've had a two-times-over hypocritical gay affair by a Republican.

Funny it took this story several days to appear on this forum, considering the hero this guy is to the pro-deportation contingency here at DC. I guess Drudge wasn't reporting it.

Hypocritical because he's anti-illegal or because he's anti-homosexual?

I think he is a one-time hypocrite. I don't believe he held anti-gay stances but I could be wrong.

Either way this story is funny as hell

Also you can blame Catholics for him being gay. Apparently he was molested as a kid by a Catholic priest in Massachusetts. I guess he liked it enough to flip sides.

Yes, obviously, because some Republicans are anti-homosexual it's hypocritical for him to have gay sex.

Now that I think about it I could see how there might be hypocrisy in regards to his being gay.

You are right there is no evidence of him supporting anti-gay policies but there is no evidence of him supporting gays right issues either.

He was in the closet and trying to hide who he was and leading a double life. Why was that? My guess is if he felt that the Republican party and his constituents was open to gays he would have came out long ago.

Now that it is out in the open I will be interested to see if the party sticks by him or if he loses.

Dirk, come on.

Lets have an honest conversation.

If anyone can answer these questions to my satisfaction I would be willing to change my mind. I have an open mind.

1. Why would Paul Babeu go to the extreme lengths to hide that he is gay even to the point of deporting his lover?

2. Republicans are leaving en masse their support for him(except McCain) why are they doing that?
a. Is it because he is gay?
b. Because he fucked a Mexican illegal alien?
c. What if the Mexican turned out to be legal would they return to support him?
d. Both A&B.

2. How many open gay Republicans are there in Congress?

I can remember no anti-gay stances from him

but one of his donors for his congressional run asked for his money back

I have to give him credit for the yeah I'm gay and that is my business
but once it gets on the web it's anybody's business

This. How do these people kid themselves to this level?

Perhaps had he come out a couple of years ago and still held his staunch viewpoints on illegal immigration, he might have survived...now, being outed involuntarily, it won't serve him too well.

I don't see how it's hypocritical.

I mean, his message is in fact "Hey, Mr Illegal Alien! You There! I'll stuff your no no hole full clear back across the Rio Grande!"

It would be a pretty effective program if he only had more time and viagra. That illegal is gone now, after all.



I'd think the left would be more affectionate towards a gay man who also loves him some nacho grande.

He says he didn't never asked if the guy was illegal and just assumed it. So he didn't know. That's acceptable to me. The showing of compromising pics was stupid though. So we know he would have been another dumb-azz politician. Nothing new here.
