His homosexuality has been a very poorly kept secret. Frankly, I didn’t care because up til now, it hasn’t been an issue.. Well.. That seems to be over. I just do not understand how he thought this wouldn’t come out.

Smells like a smear job.
“America’s Sheriff” Babeu a Jeff Gannon clone? Say it ‘aint so!
Any friend of Ron's is a friend of mine. He is a great American. BTW, do you have any favorites to replace him in the Senate? Dr. Kelli Ward has been lobbying me lately.
Wow, this is totally disgusting. I read the article and I feel like throwing up.
The are so many issues in this story..I just do not know how he can get through it unscathed.
I guess the most frequent “ten-code” in that county is 10-69;))
Thanks for the laugh...I needed it!

It sure does. There is nothing in those e-mails that they quoted that even remotely insinuates a threat to deport him. I'll reserve judgment until more comes out.
So nothing else about the story bothers you?
Well, if it ain’t our sweet Babeu. And he seemed so sensible. It probably matters little to his political capability whether he had whoopee with goats (as long as the goats, hypothetically, consented). But if the allegations are true, this is just plain improper. It would not matter if the affair was homo or hetero or just a beer buddy.
“I’m arethting you!”
“Party’s at the Blue Oyster”
and michael berry too
im done with cakers pretending to be something they are not
eff off tinkerbells
BTW, Hildy, you do know the Phoenix New Times is a notoriously left-wing publication, don’t you ? Babeu is the second-most prominent Sheriff in AZ in leading on the immigration/invasion issue (to the point that he would also be viewed as an enemy by the WH/Napolitano, et al). The open borders types would stoop to anything to destroy him. It’s why anything reported by the leftist media can be taken with a grain of salt.
I read the entire article and my first impression was that 5 or 6 different writers compiled the text. Read through this again. Try to find a cohesive line of thought.
Well, because it appears they have proof. Hey, I hope it’s wrong, more for the party than for him. I have told you that I am a supporter of another candidate in that race. But man, it would be hard to make this crap up. The are so many issues. Trolling the Internet for anonymous sex? Straight or gay, I think that’s still frowned upon in our party...isn’t it?
Yes, it is disjointed, I will give you that. I don’t think that paper is known for their award winning writing. We’ll see.
The Fox channel out of Phoenix was all over it tonight.
Yes. It bothers me that you posted this left wing rot on Free Republic without a shred of proof that any of these allegations are true. Shame on you, Hildy.
This man has been an exemplary law emforcement officer. There was not a hint of a threat in anything they presented as supposed proof. This is just foul and low.
Of what exactly?
I thought that in our “Post Modern America” (barf), a persons sexual orientation wasn’t supposed to matter in terms of how capable they were at performing their duties. Or is this no longer the case? Or does this standard apply only to Liberals and Hollywood lowlifes?
Ya Mean Babeu is a HOMO??
The SMEAR JOB happen along time ago, and The sheriff was doing the SMEAR JOB on YOU!
Any friend of John Mc Cain and backing his lies, is no friend of conservatives!
More self portaits naked in the bathroom. Where have we seen this before? ala Weiner.
And now we’ve got accusations of a quid pro quo with the dem Heinz?
Let’s see the rebuttals from him, but this looks really really bad to me. I’m not going to shoot the messenger here. Looks like there is a mountain of accusations. Let’s hear his side of all this, but right now I am SICK!
Sure, a homosexual can be Conservative ~ and their donations are certainly welcome ~ but in the long run we loose too many votes with these guys and gals.
They'd best run as Democrats if they really want to hold public office.
Oh dear . . .
Babeu: “Give me a wet back, or your wetback a&& is back in Mexico City.”
I think some are confusing Pansy Paul Babeu with Maricopa County’s (and America’s) Sheriff Joe Arpaio, hence the claims of smear, etc.
Impossible to smear Babeu. He is a smear stain himself.
I agree, it seems pretty thin gruel. Plus, the text messages are disjointed and couldn’t come from an educated guy like Babeau. And, how could “jose” manage his websites with such a poor command of English? Doesn’t make sense.
I’m with you, Scoop. I couldn’t understand what’s going on.
And guess what - this is one Arizonan who doesn’t care!
Breaking: Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu Outed As Gay By Angry Jilted Ex In Happy-To-Comply Leftist Propaganda Sheet With Video
His press conference:
In one series of texts Jose provided, the sheriff himself appears to be threatening his former lover:
Babeu: "You can never have business after this and you will harm me and many others in the process . . . including yourself & your family."
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."
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."
Soon after, DeRose sent an e-mail directly to Jose ordering him to "cease and desist."
Babeu contended during the press conference that his attorney was contacting Jose and Jose's lawyer about Jose's tampering with campaign websites, that there were never any threats about Jose's getting deported -- but Jose and Weiss-Riner dispute the sheriff's claim.
Same as the other article. Nothing whatsoever in those exchanges indicates a threat about having the guy deported. Leftist smear job.
