Arizona GOP sheriff/candidate in scandal

Posted By on Sun, Feb 19, 2012 at 8:26 AM

Sex scandals and hints of hypocrisy are a dime a dozen in public and private life, but this one seems to rise to more attention than others,

It's a Republican sheriff in Arizona, Paul Babeu. A border hawk. A co-chair of Mitt Romney's campaign in Arizona. A once-leading Congressional candidate.

His former lover, a Mexican immigrant, says the sheriff has threatened deportation if he reveals their past relationship.

The sheriff, by the way, is gay. Babeu says it's untrue that he ever threatened his former boyfriend Jose with deportation.
