Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu Is Full of Hypocrisy and Hyperbole

Babeu-On-CNN-Cuomo.jpg
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu on CNN.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has been whining about criticism he's received for orchestrating a media circus and stirring protest in Oracle over a busload of a few dozen children from Central America that were supposedly going to be detained at a facility in that town.

The children never materialized and Babeu, perched atop his self-aggrandizing pedestal, claimed victory for maintaining the peace among protestors -- and even claims the "public outcry against this secret movement delayed or permanently stopped the transfer."

It's been an interesting few weeks for Babeu, who is steadily clawing his way back into the limelight as he desperately tries to make a political comeback. His political star all but went dark in 2012 when Jose Orozco, Babeu's former Mexican lover, accused the sheriff of threatening him with deportation if he revealed their relationship.

New Times found, while investigating that story, that Babeu, who was running for a seat in Arizona's uber-conservative Fourth Congressional District, had posted lewd photos of himself on a hook-up site for gay men, posted details about his sexual preferences, and had e-mailed photos of his erect penis and selfies in his underwear to anonymous men he'd met online.

Details also emerged about Babeu serving as headmaster at a private boarding school for troubled teens, one that was eventually shut down after numerous reports of physical and sexual abuse. Babeu was also accused by his sister of witnessing an inappropriate relationship between Babeu and a young man from the school. Former students also told New Times that the teen received special treatment from then Headmaster Babeu.

But we digress.

In a recent editorial, the Arizona Republic called Babeu "sheriff showboat" and said his actions surrounding the children from Central America were "incomprehensible" and "irresponsible." (Read the editorial, but be warned, it pops up with sound and video.)

CNN's Anderson Cooper called out Babeu for releasing the exact location of the facility where these children were allegedly going to be placed.

It is very obvious no matter how much Paul tries to deny it,he did stir-up anti-immigrant protesters through social media, media postings, press releases, and leaking information about migrants arrivals to local activist.

Paul job is to enforce the law, not incite violence. The law actually prohibits harassing and/or which incites violence, hatred or discrimination against groups whether you are an elected official or not.

This guy wants to get press coverage no matter how. It is not how he gets in the media just that he gets his name spelled right. The ends justify the means.

If Ms. Jones feels P.B.'s an asset to her campaign I have to wonder what is she thinking. And what's in it for P.B.? These two are a toxic pair and will do nothing but continue to hurt Arizona's reputation in the tradition of Jan Brewer. I'm voting for Fred DuVal.

Paul is too busy running Jones campaign for Governor, he does not even know what is happen in his own County. When you endorse someone for Governor, it does not mean you are the one out every night having events and speaking for her. Paul is acting like he is running for Governor. Every reporter at AZcentral is following him around and giving him paper time. Where is Christine Jones?

What do you think of this article on SantanValley.com,

It is called : Office of the Sheriff  Written by Jack McClaren


The most important responsibility of the Sheriff is keeping the peace, not inciting fear in citizens.

The Sheriff must realize the negative consequences of sharing confidential and sensitive Law Enforcement information to non Law Enforcement personnel or any person that doesn’t have a need to know. This is not the way to build trust, especially with Federal, State, County, and Municipal Law Enforcement Agencies.

I truly believe the loss of trust over the past five years of our current elected Sheriff in Pinal County by several Law Enforcement Agencies has played a major role in Immigration and Custom Enforcement Leaders (ICE) decision not to renew its contract with the Pinal County Jail. The result of this loss of trust of our elected Sheriff will be a massive lay-off of at least 180 Pinal County Sheriff’s Office employees within the next few weeks.

The Sheriff says Federal Law Enforcement Agencies never respond back to him, well they just did !

Obviously the writer and many of you are haters. Don't know why unless you're just liberals who have nothing better to do. The issues you pick on are so superficial it's also obvious you don't know a thing about the Sheriff. I was at this Baseball banquet in which this Lucy claims to know what went on there. The Sheriff and County Attorney were guests, not guest speakers and DID NOT address the crowd in the manner she describes. This is appalling to try and blame them for telling the truth when they have done nothing but help the youth in the American Legion program. 


This is not fear-mongering. This is calling attention to serious problems here in Arizona and the World. If you can't see what's coming that's fine. Keep your heads in the sand and you won't know what hits you in the ass.


It's your choice to read and believe what you want. Even from an unreliable news source. But please don't buy into the drama of someone who clearly needs help.

Joe Paul Babeu is big on forecasting disasters that never happen. You may recall several years ago when he stated that there would be a severe conflict with cartels within months if he didn't get more money for his budget. 


He didn't get the money and the conflict didn't happen.


Sometimes abnormal people like Joe Paul take abnormal actions. They can't help themselves. They are used to being abnormal and they expect everyone else to acquiesce to their abnormal behavior.

If you want to talk about fear-monger Paul Babeu. My sister Veronica Keating had to go to her son's baseball Banquet last night in Santan Valley at the Enctera. Paul and ass kick Voyles was with him. They were the guest speakers. Ofcourse Paul told my sister and her family they want nothing to do with her again, because she is friends with me and I blog about him. (those orders came directly from the mouth of fat ass Judge Shaun Babeu).

When Voyles and Paul talked to all the baseball teams, their main topic was not baseball. I will give you one guess?

The cartel, and yes of course politics. And then lets not forget, the amount of money the Sheriff is donating to the School so they can play baseball.

Yes, let's instill fear in the baseball players after a great season and talk about how Sheriff Paul is fighting the Cartel and how important that is. That does relate to baseball in someway. They might see cartel run on their field while they are playing or they could see a bus of kids go by and they could tweet it- that the bus is coming! 

Paul is Captain fear-monger underpants.

Paul started the rumor trick when he lived in North Adams, MA when he was running for Mayor with his brother Shaun. They did it to see how quick it would get back to them and to see how many people would know about it.

What Paul did not like is when the Mayor starting revealing his secrets about Shaun and him never paying any of their taxes or water bills for the city in the local paper on any of the house they owed. Actually, I should say, the house my father co-signed for them, that they never paid the mortgage payments on and my father went into debt because of it.

Because of Paul's lies and terrible financial troubles, he never was elected. Even though, he will tell you, the race was close. He headed for AZ right after that, leaving many debts owed to people and Shaun owing thousand of dollars to credit cards. They were a bunch of thugs. My father had to pay their way out to AZ and housed them until my father bought them their house. Now these are two grown men supposedly.

My father bought them cars too, all of this, they were suppose to pay him back and never did. They further scammed him after by father sold his home in North Adams for 134,000 and Shaun took that money and bought another vehicle and who knows what else

Paul then had my father give him money from my mother, who had Alzheimer's credit card, cash, and bought several house with the promise to pay it all back. Like Paul's fake promise, my father never got any of it back.

One house my sister Veronica Keating lived in, Paul borrowed $90,000 and never would pay my father back, no matter how many times he asked. He said he needed it for when he ran for Sheriff which was a lie in Nov. 2008. Then, his reason for not paying it back was he did not remember  taking the money. Then when he did remember, he said he did not have it. Even though, he makes over 100,000 as Sheriff. They are a bunch of criminals that committed elder abuse.

My parents ending up file for bankruptcy thanks to Sheriff Paul and Judge Shaun. Paul and Shaun both have been threatening and stop me from coming from my dad's funeral who just died on June 3, 2014. Paul hire many police officers at the funeral so I could not come. Now if that is not drama and crazy, I do not know what is?  It is absolutely a abuse of Power of his position. Shaun sent the text message to my sister Veronica Keating in AZ that she was not allowed to  come to the funeral with her children if I was coming with her.

These are the  Sheriff and Judge that are in your Pinal County in AZ.

But the rapist brother John was there with Paul's 21 year old lover Israel and his mother and the felon father. What a family? Paul was not too Popular that day, he almost had as many police officers for me as people for my father.

Babeu: "And I would, I would rather err on that side, rather than to be secretive, as this whole operation was, was initially done.""

Dumbass.  It wasn't a secret that the federal government was going to detain some migrant kids in Pinal County, it was a d*mn lie.  The federal government hadn't talked to Babeu or anyone else in Pinal County about bringing any migrant kids into the county.  Babeu made the story up.

Yup he is douche. Of course he didn't answer Cooper's question because he knew he had been spreading false info.

How many anchors on CNN is Paul going to go through before he realizes he is just a complete, delusion fool, that lies and does not answer their questions. Chris Cuomo asked this question twice:  "But do you have a right to suggest who they are when you don't know?" Then said to him..... Don't assume that they're gang members."

Then Paul tries to justify his statement with a reply that immigration officials released 300 immigrants who were being detained at federal facilities in Pinal County. Does Paul realize there is a difference between adults and children. And these kids on the bus were not being released. Chris did everything to explain to Paul, that Paul knew what he was talking about. But, still Paul refused to admit these kids were not criminals, gang member etc...

One thing that was clear, is Chris Cuomo ended with telling Paul :

"And you know what my point is. Don't fear-monger.

The morning of the event, Babeu envisioned his well laid out plan would make him the feature story for several days.He assumed after that day, he would be hailed as the peacemaker for providing safe passage for the brown children.

Too bad, it blew up in his face.Perhaps,  this explains why Babeu was forced to retire even though he was in the primary zone for lieutenant colonel.

To all seeking office, do not, I repeat…do not follow Babeu's lead.Babeu will get you in trouble, just ask Mr. Adam "Lady Justice was blind" Kwasman.

Paul's brother Judge Shaun Babeu who is running for re-election, worked at DeSisto too. Our brother John Babeu who sexually abused and raped, Paul, Shaun, me and many others in the family and in the community, was hired by Paul to do the roofing work at DeSisto.

Shaun lived with Paul when Joshua the student from Desisto was living and going with Paul. This student was only 17 at the time. Shaun came into his house when I was confronting Paul on this matter. John and the rest of my family members knew all about this. For Shaun as a Judge to cover this up for Paul he is just as guilty and should be held accountable.

Paul and Shaun are still covering up for John rapes even though I have tried to bring it forward. They are both committing crimes. They have told my sister Veronica to lie to detectives about John when they have called to talk to her about it. Lucy Babeu

@fishingblues 

The problem with you saying this one fishingblues Jose Orozco had the courage and was not ashamed to come forward and say he was gay and had a relationship with his so called Daddy, Paul Babeu.  If you want to claim to be gay, and be in the closet with a screen name, go ahead. But don't pretend you are Jose and new times published your picture. It was Jose who's picture was published with Paul Babeu. Paul was embarrassed when it came out, because he was in the closet.

@bobby5527  They are a perfect fit for each other:


I Knew there was reason Christine Jones and Paul Babeu were just alike and got along so well. They both like shooting with their eyes closed.  Now, I know the reason Paul always denies all the boys he has slept with- his eyes are always closed when his 7 inch goes off.......... This explains everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think this is a great article.  It puts into perfect context everything that is upside down about the current sheriff.


He's like a "Jim Jones" who you can't tell him that he's wrong about anything.


And his followers in Pinal County are just like the "Jones" followers.  They are doomed to the same fate as their leader.  Destruction!

@gr8cook

gr8cook,  it's not that we're "haters".  obviously you support these guys.  that's your choice.  I don't support them, and that's my choice.


I don't identify as liberal or conservative.  in my view one is just as narrow minded and corrupt as the other.  no matter which affiliation I have no love for bigoted and racists behavior.  and babeu's track record is indicative of these behaviors.


nice that you would support two elected officials who blatantly operate above the law at their own discretion


lando voyles, the county attorney, as of 18 july 14, is cited by Gila County Superior Court Judge Peter Cahill for the "deliberate disregard" for said judges" orders "to not read and/or distribute documents that had ben sealed by order of the court"


and babeu, well, his disregard for the law is well documented.  routinely disobeying federal law.  and the above comment by Lucy Babeu noting how Immigration and Customs Enforcement Leaders being angered that the sheriff blatantly shares "confidential and sensitive" Law Enforcement Information to non-law enforcement personnel.  and this behavior,on the part of the sheriff,is solely the reason his precious jail will be shut down and those employees likely to lose their livelyhoods.


these are the facts.


fear-mongering?  that's exactly what the sheriff does.


a baseball banquet for children is not the place for partisan politics.  and especially not from two elected "law breakers" we put in office to enforce the law.


and don't forget, the sheriff likes his partners young.  just like his current live-in partner who just turned 21.  wonder how old he was when they first met and where they met?


yeah, nice that YOU support them.


it that an indication you support their behaviors?


too bad you can't see your support is misguided.

My sister was there with her son, and Paul does not even talk to her or her kids.  He is full of hate. Is it the right place to talk about cartel and immigration to a bunch of high school kids who are their for a baseball banquet.  Paul,Voyles and you can go spread your fear-monger shit were it is appropriate.

Paul needs help and so do you if you do not realize there is a time and place for that kind of bullshit talk and it was not in front of a bunch of students at a baseball banquet. You are delusional just like Paul. The only drama going on is with Paul Babeu..

Paul never answers anyone's questions because he always spreads false information. With all three CNN Anchors, Cooper, Costello Cuomo he tried to change the topic to his own political crap agenda.

Homeland security and ICE refuse to have anything to do with him because he leaks false information.

@nccjr99  The problem with AZCentral is they consider themselves above the public and keep letting Paul have his airtime with them,even when his says they lie all the time and they are a lousy paper. They will never take the publics information, they like to show boat and bring on their own big politicians to counter Paul and then it blows up back in their face.

AZCentral likes to take your information and use it as if it was there putting it out. They could have done in Paul along time ago but they refuse to listen to anybody but Paul himself. It is their own fault he bad mouth them. So when they call him names, it means nothing to him. If they don't realize the game he is playing yet, they are the fools. Paul uses them for camera time. And he sure as hell gets it.

It is horrible, and they have all threatened me if I don't shut up. I lost my kids, not because I was a bad mother, because they were trying to cover up the DeSisto and the rapes of my brother. I was sticking up for everyone at DeSisto and everyone John raped. Paul was after more than just Joshua. It was sick.

I am so sorry what you went through at Desisto. Paul got lawyer to call me mental to keep me from talking. I know all the abuse he did to you and everyone else there at DeSito.. It was so bad. That is why I was crying. I feel so helpless. That is why I was saying you have so much courage. I appreciate you coming forward and speaking. I am so sorry for what Paul did to you. I wish I could take it all away. I tried my best to bring it out. I lost everything for it. I am just happy you are alright. Lucy

@nccjr99 @LucyBabeu  I know why you do and I am so sorry. It is too bad Michael DeSisto is dead, he should be in Jail for what he did. Paul needs to go to jail for all the students he abused. It so unjust that he is still free. There is so much evidence against him.

The DA Capeless in Pittsfield,, MA, who is running for re-election , unopposed, needs to be forced to investigate this case. Paul is friends with him.

That is what is happening with my brother John's rapes why nothing was done. It is all politics.

The media needs to know about this and put all the documents out. I have the rape reports. PNT should let people see the Office for Children reports on DeSisto. Lucy Babeu

You are not alone. It was a huge cover-up. It was set up so when you complained that you were looked at as trouble maker and further victimized. None of it was your fault. They hired fraudulent counselors in it for the money, not in it for the student. They were hired not to report anything, which is despicable and unforgivable.

You, my friend, are proud, brave and courageous for being who you are and speaking the truth.

Much respect and love. Lucy
