"I endorse Paul Babeu based on his distinguished record of service to his country both in the military and as a law enforcement officer. I think he has a solid understanding of the short and long-term economic problems that face this country and is willing to make the necessary, tough decisions to tackle them."
-- Jim Kolbe, former openly gay Republican Congressman from Arizona, endorsing GOP Sheriff Paul Babeu's run for Congress. Babeu was recently outed when his former ex-boyfriend charged that Babeu threatened to have him deported to Mexico if he mentioned their relationship. Babeu is a rightwing darling because of his extreme stances on immigration.
