Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu Drops Out Of Race For Congress, Seeks Re-election

Call it the ol’ Arizona bait and switch!

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, who was hit with a massive scandal in February when accused of threatening to deport his Mexican ex-boyfriend, has decided to drop out of the race for a spot in the House of Representatives. In the fallout, Babeu admitted he was gay but claimed that he did not make the deportation threats.

Instead, he’ll focus on being re-elected Sheriff. So what’s he going to do with all that money the gay Republicans raised for him, huh?

You could say that’s the pink elephant in the room (heh).
