Gay-Hating “Progressives” Out Congressional Candidate Sheriff Paul Babeu …Update: Sheriff Babeu Issues Response to Accusations …Update: Copy of Cease and Desist Order

The gay-hating left outed Sheriff Paul Babeu tonight.
It’s their favorite sport.
The “progressive” Phoenix New Times reported:

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu — who became the face of Arizona border security nationally after he started stridently opposing illegal immigration — threatened his Mexican ex-lover with deportation when the man refused to promise never to disclose their years-long relationship, the former boyfriend and his lawyer tell New Times.

The latest of the alleged threats were made through Babeu’s personal attorney, who’s also running the sheriff’s campaign for Congress in District 4, the ex-lover says.

He says lawyer Chris DeRose demanded he sign an agreement that he would never breathe a word about the affair. But Jose (New Times is withholding his last name because Babeu and his attorney have challenged his legal status) refused.

The 34-year-old from central Mexico charges that the sheriff’s lawyer warned against mentioning the affair with Babeu. DeRose said gossip about Babeu would focus attention on Jose, attention that could result in his deportation, Jose says.

Melissa Weiss-Riner, Jose’s attorney, confirms her client’s account.

She says she spoke directly to the sheriff’s lawyer, DeRose, about the Babeu camp’s threats that Jose could be deported if he “revealed the relationship.” She says DeRose falsely claimed that Jose’s visa had expired.

“Jose came to our firm because he felt he was being intimidated, and he was in fear for his life,” Weiss-Riner says. “He wanted his legal rights protected.”

Babeu didn’t respond to requests for comment by publication time for this article, but his attorney, DeRose, says the dispute between Jose and the sheriff concerned Jose’s work on Babeu’s websites. He says Jose was a former volunteer who hacked into a campaign website.

DeRose didn’t immediately address the other claims against him and the sheriff, except to say, “I never threatened to deport anybody” and that “[Babeu’s] not threatening anybody.”

Informed of the situation, Nancy-Jo Merritt, a longtime Phoenix immigration attorney, says such a threat would be indicative of an “atmosphere that’s been created politically in this state, so that if you get angry at someone who is Hispanic, you immediately jump down to the level of threatening to deport him.

Sheriff Babeu is an outspoken critic of Attorney General Eric Holder and Barack Obama. Babeu called for a special counsel investigation on Attorney General Eric Holder for Fast and Furious in October. The left has been targeting him for years because of his tough stance on border security.

UPDATE:
I just received this from the Babeu Campaign. Here is Sheriff Paul Babeu’s response to the New Times’ article.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, February 17, 2012

CONTACT: Chris DeRose
480-343-8949
[email protected]

At 2:30pm today, the Phoenix New Times contacted the Paul Babeu for Congress campaign via email asking for a response to a long series of allegations for a story they had been working on for two months from an anonymous source.

The allegations referred to an incident that occurred on September 6, 2011, when the campaign’s website, Twitter account, and online financial transaction system were illegally hacked. A cease and desist letter was sent to the suspected perpetrator who promptly returned access to the campaign. This individual was asked to sign an agreement refraining from similar activity in the future, but at no time were any threats made.At that time, the individual’s attorney assured the campaign that he was not interested in causing further trouble, which was accepted as true.

We strongly deny the sensationalist headline published by the Phoenix New Times.

Please see the attached documents for a copy of the cease and desist letter, as well as the response from the perpetrator, for more details on this incident.

And, here is a copy of the cease and desist order.

UPDATE: And here is a letter from the hacker to the Babeu Campaign.

    Three Members of Obama’s Church Killed

    [Sinclair has also asked: why would Young—whom he had never met—initiate these calls by contacting him on cell phone numbers known only in the Obama camp? Further, a private investigator connected to the Chicago Police Department told the Globe, “Donald Young was silenced because of something he knew about Obama. Donald was in a position where he heard a lot of things and saw a lot of things concerning Barack.”

    Another questionable Obama associate is openly homosexual. That person is Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig, who was listed during the 2008 campaign as being part of Obama’s “technology initiative.”]

    This is true, if Obama can have Truth teams and 20 years in Wright’s church, and his the worse president ever, yes, this story if they see is making them laugh and laugh.

    How could a Sheriff have an affair with an illegal while fighting against illegal immigration. This story is one of the most unbelievable, at this moment. Day after day things get stranger and stranger.

    (Informed of the situation, Nancy-Jo Merritt, a longtime Phoenix immigration attorney, says such a threat would be indicative of an “atmosphere that’s been created politically in this state, so that if you get angry at someone who is Hispanic, you immediately jump down to the level of threatening to deport him.)

    Now, that is what is so despicable and disgusting. Nothing like generalizing for the sake of getting her dig in against all those who are fighting against drugs and guns. I wouldn’t be surprised that Holder isn’t involved, you can laugh, but this administration and people like, Yeah, another Nancy are taking this story and running with it.

    I don’t care if/that he’s gay, that’s his business. But he’s supposed to be enforcing the law, not making exceptions for his own personal gratification. Then again, I’ve always thought he was about personal gratification, or at least self-promotion. Not sure if he actually does much work enforcing the law in between all of his preening media appearances.

    OT last one I promise

    The anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List plans to endorse Rick Santorum for president.

    The group is announcing Friday it will back the former Pennsylvania senator over Mitt Romney and the other Republican hopefuls. It’s the first time the group has endorsed in a presidential primary.

    Jane Abraham, an anti-abortion activist in Michigan and chairman of the group’s board, says none of the other candidates has the “record of consistent leadership” Santorum has shown on abortion.

    Romney has struggled to win over social conservatives nervous about his previous support for abortion rights. Last year, Romney refused to sign the Susan B. Anthony List’s anti-abortion pledge, saying it was too broad.

    The group plans to organize activists, particularly in Michigan, before the state’s Feb. 28 primary.

    As for ‘stealth homosexuals” the Catholic church was their favorite ‘hiding in plain sight’ spot, then it became UNION Teacher because it’s impossible to get fired for anything much less behavior that puts children in danger, and now it’s congress and public office/

    They’re impervious to Media ridicule just like ‘black’ candidates. Any time you disagree with them you’re a racist or homophobe.

    Informed of the situation, Nancy-Jo Merritt, a longtime Phoenix immigration attorney, says such a threat would be indicative of an “atmosphere that’s been created politically in this state, so that if you get angry at someone who is Hispanic, you immediately jump down to the level of threatening to deport him.

    Right, Ms Merritt, because every libtard knows that there are no Hispanic American citizens (or American citizens who are also Hispanic or – gasp! – are former citizens of Latino countries) and, therefore, all Hispanic persons in the US are at risk of deportation.

  • squeaky

    “..are former citizens of Latino countries) and, therefore, all Hispanic persons in the US are at risk of deportation.” nancy’s just dragging out that broad brush … kind of profiling in her own way?

  • AuntieMadder

    Assuming Babeu is gay (which, incidentally, is not difficult to do), and assuming he’s a “playa” (a sexually promiscuous gay male, which is anything but rare), and assuming he had a relationship with this Jose guy, is it possible that Jose’s stay here in the US was legal until his behavior turned criminal? In other words, could his Visa have been valid and current before and during the time he and Babeu were dating (or whatever one would call what they were allegedly doing) but Jose rendered his Visa invalid, his immigration status illegal and put himself at risk of deportation by his behavior in response to Babeu dumping him? His initial threats to make life and career difficult for Babeu, along with his harassing Babeu by continuing to send text messages to him after Babeu told him to stop sending him messages, are criminal offenses in most (all?) states. If that’s the case, then, most likely, no one told Jose that his Visa was expired but, instead, they might have told him it would be revoked. And, if that’s the case, Babeu wasn’t making threats when he told Jose that he needed to stop because, if he made good on his threats to Babeu, he’d only be making life harder for everyone, including himself and his family.

    If Bebeu is a promiscuous, wiener self-pic taking, gay sex site posting playa of a ‘mo then he’s a gross bastage but not necessarily a criminal. That behavior is enough for him to lose my vote (if I was a citizen of AZ, that is) and I’d even suggest he run with a D after his name because he’d fit in better with that crowd but being a disgusting pig is not a criminal offense in and of itself and does not make him or any other disgusting pigs criminals. Having flings with legal immigrants is, well, legal or, at least, isn’t illegal (as far as I know the law, anyway). Informing the once-legal immigrant who’s turned psycho after being dumped and is now engaging in criminal behavior/actions that they are rendering their own immigration status illegal and putting themselves at risk of deportation isn’t against the law, either.

    They’ll clutch their pearls and go on and on about Babeu being a hypocrite, followed by wringing their hands as they go on and on about those who continue to support his run for sheriff also being hypocrites. They’ll tsk tsk those hypocrites as if behaving in a hypocritical way is the absolute worst sin a human being can possibly commit, worse than raping children and/or detonating the explosives strapped to ones body in the cabin of a commercial jet chock full of passengers and soaring thousands of feet above the Atlantic ocean.

    7. Condemnation of Hypocrisy
    A fascinating error which is again Special Pleading, is the Fallacy of Condemning Hypocrisy. This error claims the worst and maybe only moral failure is claiming to stand for a rule, then violating it.

    Example: Barney Frank mounts the House floor podium, harshly condemning Larry “Wide-Stance” Craig for opposing gay marriage while practicing homosexuality. Later, when criticized for allowing a gay brothel in his DC townhouse, he states, “Let me be Frank, I’ve never lied about my orientation.”

    Analysis: Hypocrisy is not the only crime in the universe. Marxist Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules For Radicals, states, “Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.” While socialists may only want others to live transparently moral lives, all people are under the same expectation.

    So interesting that the libs always turn to gay-hating when trying to falsely destroy someone.

    Sheriff Babeu has worked long and hard to keep the southern border of Arizona as secure as possible, all without the help of ObaMao and Napolitano, so of course he is going to be a target of hatred from liberals.

    But, all of you gays that think the libs will ‘protect’ you, think again. You are only going to be ‘protected’ as long as you are useful to them. After that, it’s right under the bus for you, along with ObaMao’s granny.

    This is disgusting.

  • Buffalobob

    This is the same vile rag and slug writers who back in the 80s published reports of another Republican Congressman being Gay and being involved with young boys. Reality is progs are a dirty ville group of humans that will destroy anyone, anyone who resists or stands up against their agenda.

    It looks like this could be slander, but also could be truth regarding Babeu if there was an affair. Hard to say right now. However, being a Pinal County resident, I think Sheriff Paul has done an excellent job. I don’t agree with his support of McCain and Romney, but when he was elected, he ousted a large majority of the corruption and got rid of the insanity such as photo radar as just one example. As far as Babeu’s sexuality and personal love life, who cares? This seems to be what everyone is interested in these days. We are a country obsessed with social networks and knowing EVERYTHING that doesn’t even matter. I think in anyone’s case (regardless of your orientation preference) what happens in the bedroom or in your personal life is exactly that. I think it’s time people start to mind their own business! What “Jose” did, looks to me like a vendetta and smear campaign only because he got mad that Babeu broke it off, if that part of it is indeed true. It’s so obvious that it’s a case of blackmail, but at the same time, Paul has yet to deny it. In all fairness, the photos could be real or they could be photo-shopped. If they are photo-shopped then perhaps someone needs to analyze them by pulling apart the layers (as many were easily able to do with Obama’s supposed birth certificate). The photo of the Droid with the text is dismissible because anybody can easily set up a fake account and have themselves texted, to make it look like it’s authentic when it is anything but. As for the Visa issue, well, if you come against a law enforcement officer in any way, I think that would be grounds for revocation in almost any case, no matter what the issue is pertaining to. More research should be done before jumping to conclusions. I have met Sheriff Paul. I like most of his policies, I agree with the interview he did on The Alex Jones show, and I think true policy and actions of what he does for the public should serve his character -not a personal rendezvous with another guy -if that’s even true. Again more research and the case needs to be heard in a fair and unbiased court if it’s that big of an issue.

    I would expect the publication that did it would be some low-life leftwing rag, but what matters is if it is true or not.

    And yes, having and affair with an illegal immigrant while fighting to keep the law is “claiming”.

  • JM

    Love how you guys suddenly become pro-gay when it’s a Republican hypocrite who gets nailed living a secret life. The “gay-hating left”, as you laughingly call them, only wants a world where gay people like Babau can live this kind of lifestyle and not have to hide it at all. So this SHOULD be a non-story, but when your Party is coming this close to nominating a guy like Rick Santorum as your Presidential nominee, it only forces gay Republicans to have to live in the shadows. Whether his outing is fair or not, you just watch how fast this “anti-immigration hero” become persona non grata with the GOP. To hell with all of you.

  • greenfairie

    It ought to be Sheriff Babeu’s business as to whether or not to be “out,” not those of blackmailers out to ruin someone because of his political views.

  • wanumba

    How about checking first if the accusations are true? Ya’ll really really think Babeu was running an illegal “Mexican sex slave ring” ? A lot of claims — all off an “anonymous source.”
    Who thinks Babeu would dare run for the House of Representatives if he had that going on?

    The New Times is pure slime, cozying with the illegal open borders agitators and is known for it and attracts a rabid and hateful Left crowd.

    Find out the TRUTH, then discuss it. The lies can be spread INSTANTLY to millions, the truth has to slog miles and miles and weeks to counter it.

    There is something screwy with the pix. The left half of his shirt doesn’t mesh with the look of the right half and his left hand from elbow to wrist is odd.

  • Adam D

    I see no problem here. On the contrary, I see a hard-working patriot, so dedicated to the fight against illegal immigration that he had the courage to go undercover and endure numerous episodes of gay sex–the horror! the horror!– in order to expose, and ultimately attempt to deport, an illegal craftily posing as a campaign supporter. We need more Brave Men like this if we are ever going to take our country back.

  • Not Likely

    Breaking news: Hypocrites shocked to find cameras have flashes which cast shadows.

  • The most serious issue I see in this situation is placing himself in a position to be extorted. That is dangerous for the people being represented by a Sheriff or any other public official. Allowing himself to be placed in a position where he could have to choose between misusing his public office to meet the demands of an extortionist (or whoever else finds out and becomes another extortionist) and allowing himself to be exposed to public humiliation or worse, being thrown out of office, is a lot of baggage to deal with. Now that some of the “facts” are out, it will lose its effectiveness to be used as a control over him. How the people voting perceive him overall will determine the rest.

  • Jeff C

    If the story is true, he’s got to go now.

    So what is the story? The denial is pretty weak stuff and reads like something from Bill Clinton. “We strongly deny the sensationalist headline published by the Phoenix New Times”

    They deny the headline? That’s nice, what about the rest?

    If he’s a homosexual, that’s his business, but that photo certainly won’t get him any votes. If he was having an affair with an illegal alien, he’s toast (and rightfully so) as it’s incredibly hypocritical based on his border security stand. If he did threaten him, it now becomes criminal and an abuse of his authority. He can not be condemned in strong enough terms, and the party should remove any backing.

    So what is it Sheriff Babeu? Is the photo real? Were you having an affair with an illegal alien? Did you specifically threaten to have him deported? All the smoke and mirrors regarding the cease and desist order makes you look guilty. Nobody cares. Answer the questions please.

    Quit hiding behind your lawyer and come clean.

    What is it about people that they think they can have a high public profile and this stuff won’t come out? Unbelievable hubris.

  • USMC Thomas

    Sexual abuse seems to be a common issue through Babue’s background. Disturbing.

  • Nancy

    You will note that the Left only cares if someone is gay or not if that person is not a Leftist. Then they use the accusation (true or not) to attempt to discredit that person with the Right. This is because their default opinion of the Right is that we are a bunch of bigots.

    I don’t know if these accusations against Babeau are true or not, and I don’t care. If he’s gay, so what? As for the other accusations, I have to consider the source.

    This whole thing is hilarious. Far right wing anti mexican and anti immigrant republican congressional candidate is outed by his mexican illegal boyfriend! You couldn’t even make this stuff up. I guess Babeu will no longer be the Fox News/Sean Hannity super star.

  • Sidney Allen Johnson

    The Nazi party was formed in a gay bar and was littered with homosexuals in its highest ranks…yet, when it suited their purpose they would accuse others of homosexuality. Particularly religious and political leaders that stood up to them. Obama is a homosexual…and the pattern continues.

    Wait a minute, you are lying about it. IF he has a Mexican main squeeze, THEN he can’t be “anti-Mexican,” and he has NEVER been “anti-immigration.” You omitted the “illegal” part.

  • Jason

    This is the funniest comment thread I’ve seen in awhile. Especially love the “it’s photoshopped” expert up above.

    The good news is Mr Babeu can explore his true self in prison and emerge a free, uncloseted gay man who can finally life his life, prior to praying the gay away at Marcus Bachmann’s clinic.

  • wanumba

    That’s a small thing, the big thing is why you say Babeu should go to prison?

  • USMC Thomas

    “Jose” claims Paul was his lover for several years. Gay’s say their no different than normal heterosexual couples, so wouldn’t their pillow talk afterwards maybe include interest in “Jose’s” prior life history, might not some fact slip that would create a suspicion “Jose” isn’t legal, especially to this illegal-immigration champion?

    “While saying for the first time publicly that he is gay, rising Republican star Sheriff Paul Babeu used a dramatic news conference on Saturday in Arizona to angrily deny allegations that had been leveled against him by an ex-boyfriend in a newspaper report a day earlier.

    And there ya have it. Babeu is now out and proud.

  • Ladmo Bag

    Wow. Republicans can convince themselves of almost anything if it allows them to not have to change their minds.

    I’m glad you’re all standing up to the “Gay-hating left.” If not for the brave work of all you right wing gay supporters, we’d have no gay marriages, no equal rights for gays, and no openly gay couples. Thanks Republicans, for your strong support of all gay causes!

    Oh, and I love the comment about the “Nazis accused others of being gay… Obama is gay.” Your worst critics can’t even make this stuff up…

    It helps if people don’t lie about themselves. Who’s a mindreader? The radical Left outed him in the most humilating way possible to destroy his campaign chances. He WAS running for the House of Representatives. This clears the decks for the Dem to have a better chance.

    Not our faults. Who knew? Why are you not putting the blame where it belongs? It looks like the Left is correct: No gays allowed in the GOP, ever ever.

    Works for me. Makes everyone GOP immune to the dreaded Left curse: hypocrite, and gay-bashing is relegated to the Left where they’ll keep gays as political prisoners. No GOP office office holders will be vulnerable to blackmail. Should really work out fine in the long run.

    I just don’t know why Leftists are saying he should go to prison for being gay, while they accuse Repubs of being bigoted against gays.

  • Jblock

    Wanumba: “The radical Left outed him in the most humilating way possible to destroy his campaign chances. He WAS running for the House of Representatives. This clears the decks for the Dem to have a better chance.”

    Actually he was outed by his lover when Babeu threatened to have him deported. And his lover worked on Babeu’s campaign, so he too was a Republican. Babeu is in a three-way primary with two other Republicans, Ron Gould and Paul Gosar, who both stand to benefit from this disclosure far more than any Democrat, especially in this newly gerrymandered district designed to favor Republicans. You must not be from Arizona…

    And I haven’t heard ANYONE saying Babeu should go to prison over this, but I can’t imagine why anyone would think he deserves to go to Congress.

    In following AZ’s tradition of electing homosexual Governors, I suggest Paul run for Janet’s Nappys old job. Nevermind, she was never outed by the New Slimes because she is a liberal, who would believe she was a lesbian anyhow? Can we say DOUBLE STANDARD?

  • Candy

    @JM BS

    The question is, does he do his job? Do you think outing someone before they’re ready to come out a movement of people who say they ‘support’ them? They’re the ones who are saying they’re less than anyone else due to whom they love or play with. The same with telling blacks what they should believe and what’s ‘best’ for them.

    Funny how they can dig into peoples lives, invade their privacy, commit crimes by not only hacking their sites and financial instruments, but inserting lie on the sites. Anyone else would be in jail. I don’t care what someone’s doing with their life; If I do, I certainly don’t make myself the small g god or inquisitor some think they are by toying with lives… because I don’t agree with them.

    I’ve seen so much baldfaced slander and lies. People’s lives are effected, the perp and those who employ them are never known or charged. A lot of people should meet with unexpected accidents.

    People have to know also, when you even look at public office, the moves are made to set you up for leverage; That’s how it’s always been done. No office to little, to have control of that individual or use them for good or ill later.

    The DNC/DCCC and associated entities, must have donor money to burn for detectives, etc.. Or maybe they’re calling some of those favors in.

    Babaeu wasn’t outed by his lover, he was outed by hard LEFT NEW TIMES which DOES OUTINGS. The DEMS outed him, with huge glee and mirth and mockery. OWN it.

    Now, seems despite the malice, it was a PUBLIC SERVICE. The blackmail risks were enormous and we don’t need that kind of vulnerability in Congress.

    A Left poster on this thread smirked that Babeu would go to prison, so another LEFT comment, not from anyone on the Right. ONe suspects they need more than ‘gay” to send Babaeu to prison, but we haven’t been informed there are any felonies involved. Maybe there are. But, it’s the LEFT that’s suggesting this, not anyone else.

    I am from AZ, but this is not in my district. I don’t like the New Times one itty bit as they are vicious and think nothing of destroying individuals. There’s a lot of serious stuff here, and plenty valid, without the ghouls cackling around not just trying to stop a candidacy, but trying to absolutely ruin a human being and projecting one man’s fail unto others who had no idea.

    I think by the way Babeu’s candidacy was received in AZ, that plenty of people knew his orientation, and considered they thought he was doing a good job, so they weren’t holding that against him, but they were not privy to the details, and these are ruinous. The voters did give him a break, but looks like he let them down. He has to take responsibility for his actions.

    We asked to not discuss this until we knew what was true and what was not, but were ridiculed as being in denial. Now we know more and the facts speak for themselves. The public and the GOP are innocent in this, people did not know.

    If Babeu was a Democrat, he’d been protected. So, the Left is acting to tell everyone gays have to be Democrats … or else. Okay. Not gonna fight that. Helps the GOP in the long run.
    By this New Left politicial Rule: If gays want to be GOP, then to keep the LEFT off everyone’s backs, they have to respect a vow of celibacy and stay out of the gay circuit so they can’t be blackmailed or used to embarrass the GOP. THat’s not something the GOP wanted, but the LEFT DEMANDS, the LEFT PROVED has to be done or woe to all!. Same with National Security . If you are gay, you can’t get top secret clearance, lest you get pissed when your boyfriend cheats on you so you take it out on the entire United States and open dump all the country’s top secret correspondance to our enemies.
    A-OK. The demands of the Left in this matter of gays actually works fine.

    His lover outed him, not the Democratic Party. And I thought Dems “hated” gays and the GOP just LOVES them. If it turns out Babau is simply gay (we know this is true since he admitted it…sorry Photoshop “experts”!) and did nothing illegal, this shouldn’t hurt him at all with Republicans, who will accept him as he is. Right?

    Nope. You have strange reasoning. The guy is running for Congress. For national security purposes, he can’t have a gay foreigner boyfriend. Not a foreigner girlfriend either.

    He can do something else for a living that doesn’t involve sensitive national security issues, and vulnerabiity to totally classic “honey traps.”

    If his ‘lover’ alone outed him, then it wouldn’t involved two months investigation by NEW TIMES hard Left who are laughing their asses off, as their followers of a many who have self-identified as gay, so kinda of a mean crowd, eating their own. Whatever. The Democrat Left media was the enabler. If he was a Dem, they would have been a lot quieter, so plainly it is not possible by the Left rules of political engagement to allow gays in the GOP. No problemo. ALL voters will note that. Do not criticise anyone who votes NO on a gay GOP candidate as “hypocrite” but only as common sense abiding by the tactics of attack as set out by the Left. Totally okay with that. WHo needs the constant disappointment of gays who two-face everyone?

    There’re nothing wrong with demanding the 72 hour rule and whether the info put up is legit. Got our 72 hours now and it’s panned out as a genuine PROBLEM and a HISTORY. Fine. The guy lied to everyone. But why are we being insulted? We’re all supposed to be mind-readers and have known?

    This man is not gay — he is homosexual. Big difference. He is another self-loathing, closeted Republican. He was outed; otherwise, he would have continued his pretend game. I’d love to see his nude pix, and if he wants to enjoy some hot man-to-man sex, he can get in touch with me anytime. I’d shag him, even though he is a Republican.
