Do you remember this ad from the 2008 campaign?
The man appearing with John McCain is Pinal County, Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu. He’s a rising star in the Republican party and Arizona chair of Romney’s campaign. (He spoke at CPAC just last week.) He was planning to run for a Congressional seat…or he was until this story came out:
Did I mention Babeu’s ex-lover is a man? If I was browsing for a work of fiction I would reject this story as just too absurd. Anyway, go read the whole thing. It has pictures!
UPDATE: Babeu admits in his press conference that he is gay and that he had a relationship with the accuser but denies he threatened deportation.
