Sherrif Paul Babeu has been a rising star in the Republican party for his anti-immigrant stance and his criticism of the Obama administration's position. He has been the co-Chair of Mitt Romney's Arizona campaign, and he even starred in a campaign ad with John McCain.
Two closet case hypocrites in one week! Pretty good score but we know there are plenty more out there. For example, I'm sure there are plenty of guys from the African American churches in Maryland who campaigned against marriage equality while spending their share of time on the downlow.
miblue, thanks for beating Ohio State on Saturday. Now MSU is alone on top of the Big Ten.

You got that right Slawdogg. It is kinda like John Wayne Gacy, the guy that grew up with Michelle Bachmann in Waterloo, IA, that dressed up in a clown outfit. Clown outfit, sheriffs uniform, and frock are always good disguises to mask an impending assault on a vulnerable person - especially the young. Call me old fashioned but I fail to make the conection between a Class A felony and sex.

This is not a GAY situation. It IS a problem with a person in power allegedly using their influence to take sexual favors from a person in exchange for protection. This is unacceptable behavior in anyone from law enforcement. It is like a child molester that hands out candy and toys to gain the confidence of a child. This guy needs to be stopped ...NOW!

Just another in the closet Repub who's a big critic of Obama. There seems to be quite a few of them. Looks like Romney is going to have to find a more macho Sherriff guy. The hypocrisy on the right is absolutely without end.

Just another side show. Who care if this guy is gay and wants to have his boys as long as the boys are old enough and consent. The gop=tea baggers talk the talk but fall short on the walk. They should look into their party and see what really is going on as all they do is play to their hard core base who are nothing but hater of all who are different.
just my humble view

Oh Goody!! Now let's bring out Marcus Bachmann and the circle is complete. As Harvey Milk said, everyone knows someone. I do wonder if "good republicon" Babeu is against gay marriage?
Now, with DADT repealed, it's time to end the marriage debate and extend the right to marry to all people! I hate to use the words "legalize gay marriage" because how can laws making it illegal be constitutional? Only in republicon world!
TAX THE RICH, raise the payroll tax cap and tax ALL income for Social Security and Medicare. ALL income, even the sacred capital gains.

This republican sheriff has abused the privilege of his office, and should step down immediately. How hypercritical is this? Sheriff Babeu hidding behind his strong position against illegal immigration and dating a mexican immigrant.....and he is running for the 4th Congressional District...he should rescuse himself, and explain how his involvemrnt in the Romney campaign helped his policies.
