Pinal County Sheriff' Paul "studboi1" Babeu had quite the weekend after New Times broke the story of the sheriff's ex-boyfriend claiming he was threatened with deportation if he disclosed the details of their relationship.
Babeu held a press conference on Saturday, denying his ex-boyfriend's allegations and announcing his resignation as the Arizona co-chair for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.
Now that he's openly gay (as of Saturday), Babeu's been trying to paint the story as an attack on his sexuality -- which, as New Times scribe Monica Alonzo can tell you, is not the case.
