Paul Babeu Finally Returns Phone Call to Sheriff Larry Dever -- Two Months Later

Lots of response to this week's cover story on Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever, including a bunch of e-mails from folks who were appalled that Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu failed to "man up" and return a phone call from his then-close colleague, Dever, in late February after the proverbial shit hit the fan with this oft-referenced story.

>">"I've been meaning to get back to you."

Each person that commented on that opening anecdote lauded Dever for being kind enough (even though he was pissed as hell on several levels) to have reached out to the suddenly beleaguered Babeu after the New Times story broke, if just to wish him the best as the sheriff-turned-Congressional-candidate tried to squirm his way out of a desperately tough spot.

Dever told us for our story that he never did hear back from Babeu, either on the day in question in late February or since then, even though the pair once had been muy simpatico on SB 1070 and other illegal-immigration-enforcement issues.

We can describe his tone in discussing Babeu as disappointed, resigned, unhappy, and a few other choice adjectives.

Lo and behold, Dever contacted us yesterday upon his return from Washington D.C., where he had attended the SB 1070 arguments at the U.S. Supreme Court.

We spoke briefly -- he gave us his analysis of the high court debate and seemed quite satisfied that his side (he's part of the pro-1070 crowd) is going to win the day (or at least a good part of the day).

Dever mentioned that he had heard from a lot of people within hours after our profile of him hit the 'Net on our website, but he noted one in particular:

Paul Babeu.

Sheriff Dever wouldn't reveal to us the content of what he said was a short conversation.

But he admitted that he did see the irony that it took a damned news story -- a flippin' New Times story at that -- for Babeu to finally get back to him.

The Bald Bunion must be really scared. Of the federal criminal indictments coming his way. That's why he never returned Sheriff Dever's phone call.

The Bald Bunion has quite a bit on his plate as we speak: 2 notices of claim, one for $1 million, the other for $2 million, three federal inquiries, one of which is for criminal abuse of power, the scandal involving his Mexican ex-boyfriend, and in fact coming out as gay, his quickly failing Congressional campaign, and other MCSO shurf like antics.

It's best if Sheriff Dever disassociates himself with the Bald Bunion and the Flaccid Fraud of MCSO. He has quite a bit on his own plate to handle right now. Like being an actual sheriff.

"I'm Chris Hansen from NBC Dateline' To Catch a Predator. Do you have condoms?"

I think if Chris Hansen would have exposed him instead of the New Times, it would have been that much better.

"Do you really have seven inches?"

Certainly.  Babeu is so cool now he isd courting the gay money and gay votes, he is wanting to call the deputies in his "air unit" (the guys working with his overpriced helicopter and his underpowered airplane) the "White Swallows."

White Swallows? Makes you proud of the guy, doesn't. Paul, I don't think they are going to convert. You are on your own with this one.

The man is so lacking in the normal moral sense that it wouldn't occur to him that it only compounds the affront to suddenly care about failing to get back to Dever only after it ends up in the newspaper.  He doesn't give a damn how he treats people who've gone out of their way for him, but he sure as hell cares what the public hears about him.

Whaddaya wanna bet he didn't make it through the "short conversation" without telling Dever some fresh lie?  Did he try the old, "Honestly, Larry, I never got your messages"?  Running away (sometimes literally) from people he's let down, screwed over, or lied to was his standard MO in Massachusetts.  It eventually got to the point that he he was hardly doing anything else but fleeing awkward situations.  Dever's better off without his former newfound friend.

Hmmm....considering Babeu has called PNT every degrading name he can and stated that it's basically a worthless, leftist tabloid rag....why is he reading it?

Gerry_C

 He reads it to check accuracy:   7 inches, cut, etc.  Probably not validity, but just to make sure that his exaggerations from adam4adam are cited accurately.

BTW - I was surprised to see my posts were never deleted over on Snorin Alliance and I'm still allowed to post there.  I guess Shane must appreciate my sass.  LOL.  I know he did comment to me once "I have to admit, that was very funny.  I don't agree, but it WAS funny."  To which I replied, "Well, I'm glad you can appreciate my sense of humor, if not my political stance..."

I did send him an email with some comments about him deleting you.  He never replied, of course.  Have you tried posting there lately?

Rob

 Yep, still banned.

I can type something up but when I submit it, it does nothing.

 I'm almost wondering if Shane gave old CA the boot too.
It was my request to CA for him to keep on posting his idiocy for the world to see the 'real'conservatives that set him off and garnered us our warning from Shane.  I noticed he'd started back up again...

Maybe they are worried about the new law on annoying people?
But then, isn't that still piled up in the legislature waiting to be sent to Jan?

Actually, you're not missing much.  I'm sure you're aware it's like a ghost town over there lately.  And when there IS a bit of traffic, it is on the most obscure topics.  I'm thinking there is some sort of power struggle going on.  Wanumba went away, then came back.  Con Am was monopolizing the site for a long time; now he seems to have gone into hiding.  Shane isn't posting much or replying to emails...

I'm thinking they're worried about being "offensive or annoying" and being in violation of some new law coming down the chute... LOL.

The Phoenix New Times is the first thing Paul reads when the paper comes out, unfortunately it took a while for him to get through the personal ads before he got to the Larry Dever story.

You're damn right he read Phoenix Times.  Babeu is scared of the truth.

 Yup. It's usually because New Times is the first and foremost when it comes to reporting on the most...(ahem) controversial aspects of Sheriff Paul Buffoon. He can't wait to see what's up over here.

Thats funny that it took a story to get a response from Babeu

He's been busy on the "dating" sites......

Babeu

Jolly,
These sites that Paul goes on are nake gay males. You do not know their ages, and the sick part is Paul lies about his age by making himself younger. Paul has been doing this for years. He has no intentions of love, only for his pervert pleasure. Paul is a Sheriff and it is a very poor example. Maybe if you saw his naked pictures they have, you might think differently. Don't take it out on Eleanor, Paul is the one doing this, and he cannot control his behavior and acts out. If you had children and he went with your teenage son, you might have a different attitude towards Paul. The blame belongs on Paul, not on Eleanor. And beside, Paul is the one running for Congress, we are not. That makes a big difference. So, it does matter what he does.You may not like it, but that is politics. Have a nice day. Lucy Babeu

Hey JJ...you know what Eleanor was refering to...or are you a moron?  The Baboon has totally embarassed himself and shown that he is the great hypocrite and he's been passing himself off as the great pretender.  His past from the East Coast is also catching up with him.  We Arizonans do not need to have people like him representing us...we still have real people like Dever and others.  And JJ, your reply will not intimidate anyone.  If you are disingenuous and just wanted to put Eleanor on the spot...the joke's on you.

Hi Eleanor,
No need to thank me. You are a fair a decent friend and person. People like Jolly just love to put down a women sometimes. And the only way they feel they can do it is with nasty comments. It just shows their insecurity and how unhealthy they are inside. The best to you my friend. Lucy Babeu

Jolly,
It is sad when you do not agree with Eleanor, you have to call her those nasty names. To me that means her comments bother you enough, they only way to out do her is to make fun of her. Either you are on this sites with Paul, or you are so insecure, this is the only way you know how to respond. You are just like Paul with his responses. It won't work with Eleanor putting her down. She has more value, integrity, and self-worth to let your words bother her. So give it up, you really look stupid. I still wish you a nice night. Lucy Babeu.

Lol...Baboon's is obviously too embarrassed and ashamed of himself, which is why he went into hiding in a hole since then. He's damaged beyond all control. Might as well "adios amigo!" to him now. And everybody has already has.  Lol....

maybe gay paul didnt pay his phone bill?

Babeu
Babeu

Jolly,
I am sure daddy paid Paul's phone bill. Paul instead of deleting all the messages on the phone, broke the phone and got a new one. It is refreshing to have Sheriff Dever, whether you like him or not to tell the truth about Paul. And Paul was stuck with this phone call, because he always threatens people with his asshole lawyer DeRose. But,he would not dare threaten another Sheriff. I am sure Paul was shocked when he read the article that not every Sheriff is a big liar like him. Paul was caught once again with his pants down. There was no way Paul's lawyer would give Sheriff Dever a cease and deSisto. I bet when Paul did call him, Paul played the victim role, and said, "Everyone is lying about me,you cannot believe everything you read about me." Sorry Paul, everyone is not as stupid as your lawyer and you. It so very clear that you both are the biggest idiots out there.
And as far as the naked porn gay website you were on with Jose, it was not just adam4adam. Some others were :
gay.com and manhunt.com and I am sure there are plenty others. You have been doing this for so many years Paul. This just didn't happen with Jose. It will all cum out Paul. So, you are going to have to be a good boy for now and just masturbate on your brother Shaun like you use to do. Paul your worst nightmares are yet to cum. Lucy Babeu

"...on your brother Shaun..."

That is exceptionally disturbing.

Babeu

LD19 Resident,
Yes, Shaun worked at DeSisto when Paul was the Executive Director. Shaun knew about Josh. Also, Shaun and Paul lived together on Willow St. in North Adams. So, when Paul and Shaun left DeSisto for Paul to run for Mayor, Josh came right along and moved in.
My brother John, who raped me and 5 others in the family and beat my poor mother all the time when we were growing up, worked at DeSisto doing a roofing job. Paul hired him, even though he was not licensed. Paul told John to put in the lowest bid, then he would up the price after and give him $10,000 to put in his pocket. Well, Paul never did that, he kept the money for himself. This story gets worst, but I will save it for another time. Lucy

Shaun worked at DeSisto School too? Was this during the time Paul was the headmaster and having the relationship with the 17 year old male student? 

This should all be public-record in Massachusetts. I will file a request for it ASAP. 

Babeu
Babeu

Yourproductsucks,
For once I agree with you. The incest, rapes, and violent physical abuse that happened in the Babeu house while we were we all growing up was exceptionally disturbing. It was ignored by my father. The brothers got away with crimes that they should be in jail for, along with my father. You have no idea what went on that has now been past on to the next generation thanks to Paul and the rest of the family hidding all these secrets. Why do you think Paul is finally being caught acting out on all these naked gay porn websites, abused the students at DeSisto and had a relationship with one of them. And let's not forget his threats against Jose to keep the relationship quiet. Paul has not had any counseling for his exceptionally disturbing behavior. And there is plenty more males you do not even now about. It is all very sick. Shaun worked at DeSisto too. What do you know about Shaun besides all the money he is costing the taxespayers for the conflict of interest which he could care less about. Thanks for agreeing for once. Lucy Babeu

Damn IRONIC that the local pols have to read the New Times to get a refresher course on "political correctness", isn't it?  ROTL!

And Babeu's "better late than never" attempt to eat crow probably didn't fly with Dover either.
