Romney Campaigner in Arizona Resigns After Accusation (Homosexual scandal within Team Romney)
NY Times ^ | 2/18/12 | ASHLEY PARKER

Posted on 02/18/2012 2:59:55 PM PST by jimbo123

Paul Babeu, an up-and-coming member of the Republican Party, stepped down from his role as a co-chairman of Mitt Romney’s Arizona campaign on Saturday, in the wake of allegations that he threatened to deport a Mexican ex-boyfriend when the man refused to keep quiet about their years-long relationship.

Saint Rick is an embarassment with his record claiming to be a conservative.

Babeu is a Massachusetts ‘transplant’? When did he move to AZ?

yea the MA crew like to export their turd pokers around the country and then get into a position of influence or power.

No wonder he supported Romney, another candidate which thinks that social issues are not important.

Maybe he can move back to MA and he’ll have a good chance of winning a seat there

“The New Times posted a photo provided by the man of the two embracing. It also posted a cell phone self-portrait of a smiling Babeu in his underwear and another of what appears to be the shirtless sheriff in a bathroom, posted on a gay dating website. The man provided the magazine with photos of himself and Babeu and text messages between the two.”

But, but Newt’s ex made Drudge for at least 24 hours.

Will this be on Drudge?

I won’t know because I DON’T click on Drudge anymore.

The saddest part of this is the fact that he’s been a strong border control advocate.

From what I could gather last night, it was sometime in the early 2000s. He worked for BP in the Yuma area for a short time but left to return to the Chandler PD, then became president of the local police group. He ran for Sheriff in 2008, defeating the long-time sheriff who was quite corrupt; he was also the first elected GOP official in Pinal county in decades, so it was a shock when he actually won. I didn’t move to Maricopa until the summer of 2010, so he already the sheriff at that time. I just assumed he was a native or long-time Zonie, but apparently that’s not the case.

how many of these people do we have lurking around in the GOP?

Just goes to show that the establishment care nothing about social issues and only care about their power and money.

The north east elitist must of knew this but what this states is that they think they can do this, from turd poking to illegals and we are either too dumb to find out or we won’t care.

Well we did find out and we do care , or most of us do minus the establishment RINO’s

What about those people here on Free Republic who keep reminding us that Rick Santroum will lose this fall because of his stance on Abortion, Gay Marriage ?

What about those Newt Gingrich supporters who say that Rick will lose if he brings up these issues in the fall and who are now celebrating this scandal in Romney's campaign ?

You can't go on and keep saying that Rick will lose this fall because of these issues and at the same time celebrated the Romney campaign scandal, you can't have it both ways.

However, he is enraged at Babeu, so not only hacked his website, to put disparaging comments on it, but says that Babeu threatened to have him deported if he went public.

"Jose" must have been the "female" in this sordid relationship, because they are always the fags to throw hissy fits when their lovers start screwing other men (as they ALWAYS do).

Nice to see Babeu is keeping a stiff upper lip, and offered a full-throated defense.

yea , he got on FOX a load of times and while doing so he knew what he was doing.

No the saddest part is that he shows us how many of these people are infesting the GOP with their lies and sordid affairs.

My first thought when I saw this story on TV was that this Sherrif is outspoken on the border security issue and that the Obama administration dug up this info and was able to kill 2 birds with this one stone. The discredit the Sherrif with AZ voters AND they remove a “conservative” voice for Romney and other Republicans.

Has anyone seen the ex-boyfriend “Jose”? No, he is in hiding just like Herman Cain’s women went out of sight when their usefulness was over.

“From seeing him on TV I always thought Babeu was a good guy and not the kind to get mixed up with the Romneyites.”

You must have missed the campaign Ad that Babeu did with McCain during the 2008 Primary against JD Hayworth where McCain is spouting lies about building “the dang fence”. McCainiac’s, Romneyites, same thing.

“It was bound to come out sooner or later, which is what angers me.”

What angers me is I wish this had come out during McCain’s primary fight with JD Hayworth in 2010. Babeu was in a campaign Ad with McCain lying about building “a dang fence”. Opposition research would have paid off.
