Which part, North Adams, the don't ask, don't tell part or the family stuff (then I would have to say, which family stuff, the financial or the personal.)
You must be undereducated not to get what I just wrote, or personally related and not had counseling?
I personally favor government transparency; is Mr. Babeu transparent? Really? Really? No shred of hypocrisy, cover up or deception in his party choice, financial or family dealings? Hey did you hear about the recent weed bust in Pinal? Wow. All over the papers. I wonder what's going to happen to that big stash they confiscated....Maybe you believe that family secrets are binding to the general public, but they are not. Do the right thing? Why don't you come 'out' with it yourself...
I have no idea what you are talking about but you write like someone with a modest 3rd grade education. If you are a 3rd grader, well done; if not, perhaps more education should be in your future.

I’ll ask one more time to give you an opportunity to tell us what you say you know about Paul’s “family stuff” both the personal and family information that you claim is so damning providing, of course, that you have facts to back up your accusations. It sounds to me like you have some kind of grudge against Paul and are attempting to fabricate damaging stories against him. I can tell from your posts that you are a bitter person with an axe to grind. Do us all a favor and either give us a truthful and accurate account of the facts or stop being such a nasty gossip and get a life.

I am hardly a 3rd grader. Nor am I bitter with an axe to grind. However, I despite hypocrisy of either a personal or governmental nature and, as a state employee, have seen far too many props distributed to folks who buy into low-level behavior, and I'm not referring to lifestyle choices. That is small stuff compared to brushing shit under the rug, cavorting with politicos with whom you are not honest, and making promises you can't and won't keep to your voting constituents. Oh yeah, I've got just a 3rd grade education. Now you take your 4th grade edumacation and read between the lines of what I just wrote and see if you can figure it out, atta girl. Not everybody buys into bullshit.

Paul Babeau is probably the best sheriff we've had in Pinal County in 50 years.

I’ll ask you to wipe the drool from your face before you answer this question; were you kicked in the head by a pony at your birthday party or are you just the slow one in your 3rd grade class? If you are typical of Paul’s opposition in Arizona, it’s safe to say he’ll be Governor one day.

Wow. Paul is persistent. Shaun is persistent. This is a messed up family, dude. Talk about skeletons in the closet. I guess if you're real ambitious you can put it all behind you, LOL. Gross. Serves Arizona right. Rednecks. Y'll get what you allow in office.

Pinal County Sheriff Babeu gets National Sheriff of Year award

The Republic | azcentral.com

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu received the 2011 National Sheriff of the Year award at a ceremony in St. Louis Sunday evening.

The award, which was announced earlier this year, was presented by the National Sheriff's Association. The organization established the honor in 1995 to applaud sheriffs for outstanding community involvement and improvements made to the Office of Sheriff at local, state and national levels.

Babeu accepted the award at the association's annual conference. Declared one of "America's Toughest Sheriffs on Illegal Immigration," Babeu gained national attention for his close attention to border crime.

Babeu, elected in 2008, runs the third largest sheriff's office in the state with more than 700 employees. He has procured about $7 million in grant money to fund equipment and technology.

<End>

The only relevance that I can see about this adorable man being brought up is his bringing in $7 million in grants since 2008 in comparison to Commissioner Morocco’s $5 million in grant money over a 15-year span. Boy, did we ever make the mistake of letting this diligent and tough S.O.B. get away! Don’t get me wrong, I think Commissioner Morocco has done a marvelous job and has made achievements where our past commissioners weren’t able to accomplish. You see, Concerned Citizen, this is how one puts aside their personal opinions and gives impartial credit where credit is appropriately due. This is what your mayor did when discussing Councilor Billings in May 2009: "He doesn't dance around any subject and tells it like it is. He rocks," said Alcombright, adding that you'd better get prepared, because "if you don't, you shall or will be the subject of his next public access show.... Hellooo!"

Congratulations Paul!

Factor this in Pinal County's 2010 population was just under 400,000---it is area wise- larger that CT or RI---lot's of illegal immigration issues---stands to receive more in grants

Okay, NA M, got it now? I hear the news has finally broke. But you just were so sure I couldn't be right. It's not the gay thing. it's the 1) I don't support gay marriage because I pretend to be far right; and 2) I'll deport if you tell on me or 3) I'll do underage dudes, legal or not. Got it. Hypocrisy aint' cool, dude. Republic or Dem, it aint' cool.

Strong accusations indeed. People are assholes. Got a response for this this time?

Also, why is his life private????? When he calls his own family members "mentally ill" as a result of rape-induced PTSD...his whole family is riddled with rape and abuse charges, and not just from the Church. How dare he attack another family member for being 'mentally ill' as a way to discredit her, when his blackmailing an illegal he's doin' is 'nobody's business.'

Does that disgust you yet? Where do you conservatives draw your moral lines.

He's got days to step down. Because McCain, Romney and all the others want NOTHING to do with this sort of behavior.

Why don't you delve into his years as an executive director of Desisto to run for mayor in Massachusetts. Wanna check that out too? Oh but that's his private time, right? See if the Republican party puts up with that excuse. That's the UA excuse for screwing graduate students after hours. LIIIIIMP.

Now you can shut up. Hypocrisy speaks for itself and it wears a beige uniform, brother...just like so many others in the 1930s. ONe standard for me, one standard for others....Sound familiar. You ARE familiar with world history?
