The text messages — many still saved on Orozco'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. (Babeu since has denied that he sent explicit texts on his PCSO phone.)

In a phone conversation with Weiss-Riner on September 12, Orozco's attorney says, DeRose launched a series of attempts to keep Orozco from posting comments and to get him to sign a non-disclosure statement about the relationship. She says DeRose brought up Orozco's supposedly expired visa, possible deportation, and threatened a defamation lawsuit. She says DeRose mentioned that Orozco's comments were "embarrassing" for Babeu.

Weiss-Riner responded to DeRose in a September 30 letter: "I'm sure I don't need to remind you that truth is an absolute defense to any of these claims. Therefore, even if my client's alleged comments regarding Mr. Babeu were 'embarrassing,' as you state, they were in fact truth."

Orozco says he contacted New Times because he's had to turn his life upside down to stay out of Babeu's reach. Since the two parted ways, he says, he's moved twice, is looking for a new job, and has spent his life savings to hire Weiss-Riner to defend against a series of claims by the sheriff.

As for the ones related to the unpaid website work, Orozco thought everything was settled after turning over the passwords. The ex-lovers left it that they would discontinue contact with each other, Weiss-Riner says. But several weeks later, after Orozco moved into an apartment with roommates — leaving no forwarding address — a Christmas card arrived in his new mailbox from Babeu.

"It was [Babeu's] way of letting me know that he knew where I was," Orozco says.

Shortly after the card appeared, Orozco says, he angrily posted more anonymous comments online about Babeu's sexuality.

DeRose again flew into action, Weiss-Riner says, e-mailing her that Orozco wasn't living up to his and Babeu's no-contact agreement.

She responded to DeRose in a January 17 letter: "My client requested that your client discontinue any and all contact with him. You advised me that Mr. Babeu would comply with that request. However, your client violated that promise and sent [Oroz­co] a Christmas card at his new address. Clearly, your client has no intention of leaving [Oroz­co] alone, but instead intends to continue to harass and threaten him."

She also wrote that Babeu's continued "harassment and intimidation have caused [Orozco] to live in fear. [Orozco] has done nothing wrong; he has a right to live in peace without worrying about himself, his family, and his friends."

Weiss-Riner told DeRose that if Babeu didn't leave her client alone, she would seek an injunction against the sheriff to prevent further harassment.

She says she had no more contact with DeRose after that.

Paul Babeu's slick presence and conservative views — particularly on border control — have garnered him national popularity among the Tea Party element of the Republican party. He's frequently appeared on national Fox News broadcasts as a border hawk.

Babeu's presence on the national stage reached a new high in May 2010, when he was featured in U.S. Senator John McCain's "complete the danged fence" TV ad. Babeu's inclusion was meant to bolster the senator's credibility on border security during a heated Republican primary race against former Congressman J.D. Hayworth.

In the ad, McCain and Babeu are shown walking along a slatted steel fence delineating the U.S.-Mexico border. The longtime senator asks the first-term sheriff whether the McCain plan is the "right plan" for the border. Babeu says McCain's plan is "perfect." Then, he gives his political nod to McCain: "Senator, you're one of us."

When Babeu was elected sheriff in January 2009, he made sweeping changes in the Pinal County department, replacing its command staff, and according to the county's website, "implemented high employee standards."

In January 2011, Babeu fired Pinal County Deputy Louie Puroll, who claimed he was ambushed in the desert by runners employed by a Mexican drug cartel (“Pinalcchio” and ”White Wash,” September 23 and November 25, 2010), saying the deputy violated several departmental rules.

Among them was that Puroll had "been abusive in attitude, language, behavior, or conduct" and that he "engaged in conduct, on- or off-duty, that is of such nature that it would tend to bring discredit to the county."

During the previous year, Orozco says, Babeu e-mailed explicit photographs of himself to an anonymous man he met on the gay adam4adam.com website.

Orozco knows this because he posed as this man after his suspicions resurfaced that Babeu was cheating on him.

He shared with New Times photographs that he says Babeu e-mailed to the anonymous love interest. In the photographs, the sheriff revealed himself shirtless, in his underwear, and naked from the waist down.

Attorney Antonio Bustamante said Babeu's alleged actions demonstrated bad judgment.

"To behave in a way that can threaten your own political career, it means that this person is a risk-taker," Bustamante says. The public "needs to know how far [politicians] are willing to go in taking risks."

I have had amazing things happen during the first week of my casting. my boyfriend has done a 360 and is now talking with me and wanting to spend time with me again. I can't believe after all that has happened he actually turned around and started talking and wanting to be with me. It's AMAZING! prophetharry@ymail.com is like a god sends an angel in my life. What can I say? my boyfriend and her new girlfriend just split up and he wants now to be with me. We went out together and he confessed his love for me and the love told me how much he wanted to be with me. I still cannot believe that he has turned around like this. I am in shock. He was so dead set on Nicole and not wanting to be with me that I could not see it turning around. prof was my last hope. After being disappointed by many spell casters that just wanted my money I am glad that I put my faith in just one more person. I am in prof debt for a life time! ZiyandaDurban

I never believed in spell casting or magic. I felt silly even looking at spell sites online. I have been in tears over the loss of my husband. I found testimonies about prophet harry and I have no idea why I searched "spells" but I did. I ordered a love spell from prophetharry@ymail.com and got my husband back Thanks for simply being legit and delivering where other sites never could." Tamara Johnson, Ohio

this is a spell caster I contacted 2weeks ago. he is really great. I have been scammed initially by other spell casters of almost a thousand of dollars. I am not rich, I work my ass for this hard earned money. But my sadness was turned to joy when I met Dr.Zack Balo he is really terrific and you will get results for whatever you are seeing he for within very few days. he is so honest and sticks to his promises. His contact is below: wiseindividualspell@gmail.com.

I do not mind him being gay.

I mind:

1, His fake boarder walk - since his county has no boarder. ( We saw him LIE in TV)
2. His strong talk and crawling after 10 PM in an Mexican arm ( ?) or he behind him?
3. The fake letters he writes how important his county is in terms of Illegals crossing- like he is the first defense line of AMERICA.
4. His remarks about the USA president.
5. The money he demands just for not being in Budget!
6. The 5 million he received - TAX money - for fake claims?
7. How he investigated HIS DEPUTY ( fighting with Drug members in the dessert - A LIAR?? )

Overall - THIS MAN HAS TO GO.
VERY SOON i hope!

BUT hey this is AZ - land of the retard Republicans - they will vote for all that is a fake..

More Names?? Read the news!!

He may have been wrong in his emails, but have you all not done something wrong in your lives? Give the man a break - how many years did he have to live with the silence due to persecution from the public? I congratulate the man on coming out and accepting who is - keep up the fight man we deserve people in public office that say enough and tell the world that this suppression of gay life has to end!

Read your article on Paul Babeu a couple days ago and WOW! What a great job. It seems the majority of people in powerful positions keep feeding us the same line, "Do as I say, not as I do". Double standard comes to mind. I don't care for it and I'm sure most of your readers don't either. Everyone makes mistakes, but come on....This is just abuse of power anyway you look at it. So I take great delight in seeing a man like this fall. It just reinforces the concept that "the truth shall set you free". this is a slam dunk for Mr. Orozco's lawyer! Paul Babeu brought this on himself. He is creating his own demise, ya gotta love it! I feel no remorse for this County sheriff whatsoever. Poor Mr Babeu. He's going to have to find another avenue to fill his insatiable need for attention and risk, apparently. What a total hipocrite! Hard core anti-imigration advocate, all the while on his knees suckin off some illegal alien... LOL. Thats Classic. I hope you follow up on his experience as the HEADmaster of the DeSisto school in Stockbridge, Mass. A controversial school for trouble teens. I'm sure that could turn into a hotbed of allegations also. Heck, you could easily get another 3 or 4 more covers out of this train wreck before its done, and the funny, no sad thing is.....U can't make this stuff up. I will wait with baited breath.

Keep up the good work!

First we had "Bareback Ridin', Butt Bustin' Gentleman Jim Kolby"; now we have "Studboi Babeu." I can't believe how many in the Tea Party STILL support the nit-wit Sheriff who couldn't shoot straight just because "he's one of ours."

Well, Babeu's not one of mine. So much for the evils of partisanship.

Wow! Republicans really have become the party of Perversity!

Nice to see Jose's face! Remember, he may have shagged the sheriff, but he didn't shag the deputy - so cut him some slack.

Check Fox10, the real story is now coming out. Jose Orozco is allegedly on a valid 10-yr. multiple-entry visitor visa. Under this type of visa, your permanent residence must be in your home county, and you cannot be employed within the USA and you cannot operate a business in this country. Orozco registered a business with the state of Arizona in July, 2011, Website Results, LLC. Could it be that when Babeu advised Orozco via text that he "cannot have business" that he was only stating a simple fact? He cannot have a business in this country under a tourist visa. How is that a threat? Good job Monica Alonza and the inept New Times editorial staff in being fooled by this crybaby guy and not doing due diligence. This isn't about prejudice on the part of Monica and the New Times, this is pure stupidity. As a result, you trashed a man's life, but that's okay, isn't it, you sold papers.

The guy has been an outspoken activist in favor of (a) a party that is openly hostile to the idea that homosexuals should enjoy basic human rights and (b) figured that, when the sh*t hit the fan, he could silence his lover by abusing his power and threatening a deportation. If this is how he believes his power is supposed to be used, he is in no way fit for public life. He is a model hypocrite, which no doubt makes him fit in perfectly in the GOP, but surely there has to be a limit to the blatant lies and abuses one can get away with. Knowing that the guy has no problem using his position to deal with his personal problems (of his own making), do you really think he belongs in a position of authority?

He was sending pics of himself to solicit sex over the internet. Do you think Sheriff Andy Giffith would approve of Babeu's conduct? Maybe Gomer Pyle. Your Babeu is a fraud and a lewd person.

Dogbiter

Beside the point, fool... this proves nothing. The New Times story said along that he was in the country legally. The threats came in phone calls from DeRose to Jose's attorney. Plus what you say is only Babeu's spin. In fact, you are probably Babeu. Now Babeu says this was about the website problems, which New Times also had in the original story. As for Babeu's life getting ruined, he did it to himself. Posing on adam4adam as a sitting sheriff (and there's more to come on this front, supposedly, according to New Times) is really tawdry. It goes beyond personal photos getting leaked when you do something likt that.

Breaking into the U.S. market can be a rewarding venture for many foreign businesses. Because U.S. citizenship and residency are not required, foreign nationals are able to start or expand on U.S. soil without experiencing much more red-tape than an American-born business owner would.

and I would hesitate to quote the SBA regarding this. The proper reference would be the State Department. This is one common prohibition for either a B1 or B2 visa, quote "Will receive no salary or income from a U.S based company/entity." I expect that you already know this.

How do you people who just throw out empty remarks with no substance, no facts at all, think that you come across as having any credibility? "Selling papers" is a broad term used to denote moving newspapers in to public hands or to "sell" the paper to advertisers. When you can properly and intelligently participate in a debate or present a proper refutal, get back to us.

Citizen

Again, Ms. Silver is not the State Department and is giving a very technical answer. Yes, you can incorporate in the USA. However, the bottom line if you are on a B1 or B2 visa is you cannot receive salary or income from an US-based entity, not even your own. Your arguments are clearly not germane to the debate.

Foreigners Starting a Business1
By Judith Silver, Esq., Coollawyer.com
Q: I would like to know what I need to do to start a business in the United States. I am not a U.S. citizen and I live abroad, but I'd like to start a business there. Do I need any special permit? Can I incorporate? Can I partner with a
local person? Is any state recommended for foreign investors?
Answer:

Citizens and residents of other countries may incorporate in the United States through the standard incorporation procedures set forth by each state. The main benefit of incorporation is that your personal assets are protected from civil liability for acts of the corporation. The corporation is a separate entity from its individual shareholders, or owners, and therefore has its own liabilities, responsibilities and tax identification number.
