No one could have predicted

Another day, another closeted right-wing politician (h/t commenter elm):

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.

    @Alex S.: Babeu’s been the poster child for anti-immigrant politics, so there’s additional hypocrisy in him having a same-sex Mexican lover that Babeu now claims is an illegal immigrant.

    Still, I agree that the more serious charge is his alleged abuse of his power as a law-enforcement officer and an elected official.

    What do homophobic comments have to do with anything?

    The part of the story I read was about threats and intimidation.

    And hypocrisy. Let’s see. A law enforcement official is hot to deport illegal immigrants. Except for the one that he is having an affair with.

    Three days ago..a big government site interview Babeu and he said he felt Holder perjured himself

    I believe…and many sheriffs in Arizona believe that, he…perjured himself. His story has changed. After there was evidence produced that he did know — he was given briefings, he was given emails — he then started to walk back his statements to say that, “well, I misunderstood the question.”………………………………………..
    As a police officer before I was a sheriff, when somebody I’m talking to starts to change their story — that’s a clue they’re not telling the truth. So, this guy (Holder) is in charge of the Department of Justice, still — to this day — from Dec. 15, 2010, so it’s been over a year and there’s still been no accountability, we still don’t know who’s approved this program. How can that be?

    @Brachiator: and the key here isn’t that he was gay or that he was the Sheriff, it was that he abused his position for his own personal benefit (talk about a “personal” benefit). Pinal County isn’t exactly a Mecca of liberal thought but this won’t sit well with folks once the light of day shines on this. The interesting part will see if this will even filter into the news feed that those folks tap into or even if the Feds will step in to investigate those nagging little issues like kidnapping and abuse of power. Granted this will play well on the personal persecution multiplex, but we’ll have to see if people stay long enough for the show or just tune into the trailers.

    @Suffern ACE:
    I think ‘sexual slavery’ is a hyperbolic phrasing. The lover had the option of walking out on him. The thing is, it has the basic elements of sexual slavery, that is Babeu had a relationship with someone who he had enough power over to have that person deported, in circumstances where that threat was consciously known at all times even if it was never discussed. This becomes vividly clear when Babeu overtly uses the threat to get his way on something.

    The power imbalance is huge, Babeu demonstrated that he was willing to use it to get his way, and they were in a sexual relationship. Most forms of this are illegal, will get you fired and banned from a profession, or both.

    Pinal County isn’t exactly a Mecca of liberal thought but this won’t sit well with folks once the light of day shines on this.

    The same’s true in the war on terror: Obama killed Osama, Bush did a photo op on a carrier. To them, the latter action’s the one that matters.

    Same for gang-fighting in Central America. Under FBI pressure and advice, every country down there’s enacted hardcore all-stick-no-carrot laws against MS-13, and still the gang problem’s worse than ever… the only country that’s made any headway against it is Nicaragua, which instead of listening to the FBI’s bullshit, actually invested into rehabilitation programs which… lo and behold… work.

    @Brachiator:

    And hypocrisy. Let’s see. A law enforcement official is hot to deport illegal immigrants. Except for the one that he is having an affair with.

    Well, it hasn’t been established that lover was in fact undocumented. In fact, the guy claims that he is documented and that Babeu’s lawyer threatened him with deportation anyway. And I am guessing the former boyfriend had good reason to believe that they could make that happen. Not that it makes a difference, but it really stinks if you’re legal and someone will deport you anyway. Breaking up with your boyfriend who won’t commit to an exclusive relationship after you’ve caught him attempting to cheat is hardly the type of offense that earns most people a trip to the INS detention system. I think we should focus on that rather than “Oooh. sleeping with illegals by night. railing against them by day.”

    Not that it makes a difference, but it really stinks if you’re legal and someone will deport you anyway.

    Actually, the sheriff is playing it both ways. “I will keep you close or kick you under the bus, based on my relationship to you and your keeping quiet.”

    And what if he approached someone else and said, “I know you’re illegal. How would you like to stay in this country and not have to worry about your status? All you have to do is be my luv muffin.”

    And then to go out bashing illegal immigrants? Dante put the Hypocrites in the lower circles of the Inferno with good and poetic justification.

    @suzanne:

    Babeu will not win this congressional race. District 4 is ultra-conservative and tailor-made for a “values” candidate. The likely beneficiary is Ron Gould, a state legislator, although current the Congressman Paul Gosar could pull it out.

    I’m listening to Babeu’s press conference now. He’s pirouetting madly around the germane issue of gay rights inside a party insanely hostile to minorities. So, he’s hiding inside a Ron Paul 10th Amendment position that conveniently allows him to avoid the issue of his own political position.

    BTW, most of Arizona’s political junkies have known of Babeu’s sexuality for some time. The personal hypocrisy of being a hard-right Republican is more damaging than the allegations of abuse of power. Republicans don’t care if “authority” abuses the rights of a Mexican national. They do care if you’re “not one of us”.

    Whitney’s death has really bummed me out but two things have lightened the mood.

    No. 1: Fox News was forced to cover the funeral which I’m sure freaked all these old white bigots out to watch a church full of black people.

    No. 2: This “family values” sheriff is clearly messaging his latino boyfriend’s nipple in all of the pictures I’ve seen so far. And apparently the loving was so good he threatened to deport him if he told anyone. Wow. Just wow.

    Isn’t blackmail still a crime?

    @Frankensteinbeck: No, the term sexual slavery is completely apt. If (and it’s still a big if, and I’ve seen enough cases where it turned out to be false) he threatened to have someone deported if he didn’t service him, that’s sexual slavery. The boyfriend had two choices — take the abuse silently, or risk deportation and the abuse that goes with being gay in Latin America.

    @demimonian – yes. Sexual slavery is appropriate, if we ignore what the ex boyfriend said and insert stuff he didn’t say. Do sex slaves normally get mad when they are cheated on? Or do we now start talking about Stockholm syndrome.

    @mai naem:

    I still kinda feel sorry for the guy

    I feel sorry for the closeted in general. I do not feel sorry for those who abuse others due to internalized self-hatred.
