Paul Babeu ex-boyfriend appears on CNN
Politico ^ | 2-20-12 | MACKENZIE WEINGER

Posted on 02/20/2012 12:24:49 PM PST by Mikey_1962

Arizona congressional candidate Paul Babeu’s ex-boyfriend spoke to CNN on Monday, saying he felt “used” and threatened by the Pinal County Sheriff after their relationship ended.

Babeu’s ex-lover Jose, a 34-year-old Mexican national, told CNN’s Miguel Marquez that Sheriff Babeu threatened to have him deported if he went public with their affair. Jose’s face is pixilated in the interview.

Jose — who said he is in the country legally — told Marquez he felt “used” during the affair. Marquez then asked Jose, “Used. And then threatened?”

“Yes,” Jose said in the interview. “I got a text from him, directly, on my phone saying that I will never have business, that my family will be contacted.”

Jose said Babeu threatened him with deportation if he exposed their affair. “Do you think he was trying to make you leave the country?” Marquez asked.

“Maybe,” Jose said. “He just, what I think he just want me to keep me as far as, so I don’t say anything about him or about his behavior.”

They met in 2006 on a gay dating website called gay.com, and Jose said the first picture Babeu sent was a photo of him with Sen. John McCain.

Jose also told Marquez that Babeu never asked him what his status was during the course of their relationship, and said he is in the United States on a ten-year multiple entry tourist visa.

Babeu has stepped down as a co-chair of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign after Jose’s story was reported in the Phoenix New Times, but said he will continue with his congressional campaign. At his press conference on Saturday, Babeu acknowledged he is gay, but denied Jose’s allegations that he threatened to deport him once their relationship ended.

“All of the allegations are false except one, I am gay,” Babeu said on Saturday.

Babeu was a decent Sheriff. But Congress is not all about border security and law enforcement. But we do not need another vote for gay "marriage", anti-"bullying" against gays, and hate crimes legislation vs. LGBTs. We have more than enough Democrats who support that crap.

Babeu yesterday said he supported "gay rights". I can no longer support him. This matter is sordid and potentially criminal. He should withdraw.

Sheriff Babeu is in one of the dems coalition groups and made the fatal mistake of trying to leave the plantation (bath house?). so now they must destroy him for his “crime”

I'm always perplexed by what that means. You see, I support gay rights also. I support that gays have the same rights that I and every other American citizen have. Does this make me a bigot? I guess in today's upside world, probably.

the Dems export their homosexuality, leave MA, go to another state, pretend you’re a republican and then once elected vote for their homo agenda.

I guess Megyn Mccain is so proud of her turd poker

As for equal right, er they do , they can marry just like us, just not the same sex like us but if you do go with their equal rights views then I guess we have to give rights to the muslims who should have 4 wives, the mormons who want 9 wives, the woman who wants to marry her dog or the father who wants to marry his daughter

sick frigging idiots all of them

Babeu was a decent Sheriff.

He violated the #1 rule of politics: don't get caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy.

All of the allegations (except the allegations that this sheriff trolls on homo web sites for sex with strangers, and that he has been deceiving everyone for decades, and that he was breaking the law* while a commander in the military) are false.

(*DADT did not change the law, it simply said “we won’t enforce the law if we don’t find out you break it, and we won’t be monitoring to see if anyone breaks it” - but those having homosex were breaking the law.)

Usually this kind of stuff gets covered up by the MSM. The Joses of the world are never allowed on camera. The people who report the facts are called bigots and homophobes.

Why did this story make it to the MSM?

The problem for Babeu really isn't the Democrat party and their captive nations. It's the American people, in general. They simply do not tolerate gay Republicans even though they adore gay Democrats.

The voters never hold back a sec from beating all Republicans about the head and shoulders for dealing in gays.

When a someone says “gay rights”, I don’t assume they mean the rights we all hold in common, I assume they want special rights, otherwise why mention it? They already have all the rights everyone else has, so anyone who implies otherwise has an agenda.

Sorry, as Senator Craig and Representative Foley taught us (as did several House professionals as well), you get too many gays in the mix Republicans lose elections.

Oh, yeah, the RNC Chairman, Ken Mehlman, didn't help with things.

It is more important that we win this election than that Br'r Babeu be involved in this campaign.

We can be concerned about gay rights at some later date ~

What a disgusting story. Who would have thought that the fecal-eaters would be receiving positive press? The #1 vector for the spread of infectious disease, male homos, exalted as something special and deserving of special rights and privileges for being mentally disordered. People should read up on homo bathhouses-—absolutely the most unsanitary quarters with fecal coliform contamination throughout—little different from the worst public outhouse and these deviants are rimming and felching like it is a gravy train, but hey; we should never express outrage or concern for public health—it ain’t the gay way.

Yes, indeed.

It used to be that the government recognized lifetime heterosexual couplings as “marriage”, in which the man and woman threw their lot together PERMANENTLY, because they were almost always procreative and were the time-tested method for ensuring the next generation was nurtured and provided for.

Procreation is ESSENTIAL for society and the nation - so the government has an interest in affirming the right of people to choose a lifetime heterosexual partner. But the government has no interest in promoting any other forms of sexual relationships.

As you (sort of) said: “gay” “rights” my ass.

“Gay Rights” is about “Special Rights” for an urge. There is no Right to sodomy—an evil act—in a government which is founded on Natural Rights from God—we can never dump that for Barney Frank’s twisted, ugly, demeaning notions of “Rights”.

Homosexuality (gay Rights) demeans people’s bodies-—uses them for their own lusts—which not only is nihilism and debauchery—but denies children their basic natural rights to have their biological parents do their duty and raise their own kids.

This destruction of the Natural Family comes right out of Marx’s book of egalitarianism—no differences between men and women. It is a Big Lie and Just Law can NEVER promote evil in societies. Just Law is based on the Moral Virtues and social contracts that promote the “laws of nature”-—they were until this promotion of Marxism is dismantling Just Law.

Laws favoring evil, dysfunctional behaviors which try to normalize evil are Unjust Law. It is unconstitutional.

I wonder if this thread will stay on here. I hope so, because it is the truth - the sheriff admitted he’s gay. I don’t care what an individual does, but to be a representative is something else - there is no doubt he would push the gay agenda and I’m sick of these people helping to destroy America. No, I do not want any of them in public office. If that makes me biased, fine.

True, and as you said, even with heterosexual marriage we are talking “used to be”. The way the laws are in our country nowadays, we don’t even have heterosexual marriage anymore, so what exactly are the gays clamoring to be included in? Marriages nowadays are just non-binding contracts designed to redistribute wealth.

ElIguana

(TheChurchReport.com) In Arizona sheriff building a national profile stepped down Saturday from a state leadership position with Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign after a newspaper published allegations that he threatened to deport a former boyfriend. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu denied the allegations during a press conference Saturday. He was co-chair of Romney’s campaign in Arizona and is a candidate for Congress in the state’s fourth district.
