YVRguy saidWhere in the article did it say that the Sheriff sent naked pics???? For someone who suggested I read the article maybe RickRick91 should read it again.
Besides, I guess in the US anyone who has ever sent an naked pic of themselve to a lover by email is not fit for public office. I mean, who would ever do such a thing!!!! If making a dumb mistake disqualifies anyone for public office I suspect the pool of candidates would be small indeed.
...and with respect to the "bullshit" comment let's see if I understood correctly: the closeted guy's lawyers threatened the BF if he outed the closeted guy, so the closeted guy felt obligated to out him! Uh huh. More likely to me that the lawyers got involved because a jilted BF threatened to out him in the first place. Obviously more to the story than has been reported so far.
from the Phx New Times who originally broke the story:
"Jose came to our firm because he felt he was being intimidated, and he was in fear for his life," Weiss-Riner says. "He wanted his legal rights protected."
He says Babeu then sent pictures to Jose.... In one photo, Babeu poses grinning in a pair of gray underwear in front of a mirror. The flash from his camera phone obscures his left shoulder. In another photo, he poses naked with an erection. His face isn't visible, but the bottom edge of one of Babeu's unmistakable arm tattoos can be seen.
The text messages — many still saved on Jose's cell phone — appear to be sent from Babeu's business cell phone. Babeu identifies himself on his voice mail and says he is the sheriff of Pinal County.
