In Arizona, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, a well-known anti-illegal immigrant proponent, co-chair of Mitt Romney's Arizona's campaign and Republican Congressional candidate, has been exposed as being gay by a man who told the Phoenix New Times that he was Babeu’s ex-lover (video below).
The two men (pictured, left) allegedly met on Gay.com.
The Phoenix New Times published an interview with a man whom they called "José," a 34-year-old homosexual from Mexico, who said that Babeu’s lawyer threatened to deport him if he spoke of the affair after they broke up.
Babeu then admitted in a press conference that he was gay, stepped down the Romney campaign, but denied the rumors that he threatened anyone with deportation.
Babeu was running for Congress and chairing the Arizona Mitt Romney campaign when the story broke.
