    Because two wrongs always cancel each other out, right?

    Not at all, just pointing out that pointing fingers is silly, when this kind of hypocrisy goes on everywhere in politics.

    I am not pointing fingers at anyone. Just found the whole episode a bit amusing.

    You knew this was coming...

    Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu on Saturday denied allegations that he and his attorney threatened to deport a Mexican former boyfriend of Babeu's unless the man agreed not to disclose the relationship.
    Babeu said the allegations are "completely false" and that the only information mentioned in a Phoenix New Times article that's true is "I'm gay."
    "This was the way, the hook of how this could be brought out (his sexuality) and to malign and attack a sheriff who does stand for conservative principles," said Babeu at a press conference outside his department's headquarters in Florence.
    The sheriff acknowledged he had a relationship with "Jose," the man who made the allegations to the New Times. The alternative weekly's online story was accompanied by photos of Babeu with a man it identified as "Jose.".

    The moral of the story is: If you are an ultra conservative hawkish type, it is OK to be gay.
