Second worst Sheriff in the world

Don't usually post on closeted gay GOPers who get caught but this guy is so bad, he might even tie Joe Arpaio for the Worst Sheriff title. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who also became a high profile figure in Arizona because of his flagrant bashing of undocumented immigrants, is accused of threatening his gay Hispanic ex-lover with deportation unless the paramour agreed to keep their affair a deep dark secret forever.

Apparently, the lover refused the deal and went to the press out of fear for his safety. Details of their extended relationship and somewhat intimate pictures at the link. Word has it some of those pix were sent out over the internets.

But it gets better, or worse, if you're the Sheriff. Babeau is also running for Congress. One wonders how that will play out in the campaign ads. But even more delicious, he was co-chair of Willard's presidential campaign. Emphasis on the was:
“Sheriff Babeu has stepped down from his volunteer position with the campaign so he can focus on the allegations against him," Romney spokesman Ryan Williams told The Arizona Republic in a statement. "We support his decision."
I'll just bet they do.

TBogg has the definitive last word on this story: "Obviously when someone told Sheriff Babeu to "screw the Mexicans" there was a horrible misunderstanding."

We may have to elevate "He who smelt it, dealt it" to the level of physical law, like Relativity or the Heisenberg principle.

Is conservatism in America just another word for something to hide?

So it would seem. More and more so every day.
