Letters exchanged between lawyers for Paul Babeu and his Mexican ex-lover
As everyone knows by now, the allegations are that Pinal County Sheriff and Congressional District 4 aspirant Paul Babeu threatened his Mexican national ex-boyfriend with deportation if “Jose” disclosed information regarding their romance and Babeu’s homosexuality.
Although Babeu has now publicly acknowledged he is “gay,” he denies threats were made and is determined to move forward with his congressional campaign.
Christopher DeRose, Paul Babeu’s attorney, who is also his campaign manager, sent this cease-and-desist letter to Babeu’s ex-lover “Jose” September 6, 2011. (It is now known that his full name is Jose Orozco.)
This is the letter* sent by immigration attorney Melissa Weiss-Riner, representing “Jose,” in response to the cease-and-desist letter.
In the ongoing “He said/He said” saga, the following statements stand out as highlights:
Paul Babeu: “What I do in my private and personal life is my business.”
Melissa Weiss-Riner: “It is not about his sexuality it is about the fear and intimidation my client felt.”
These compromising photos are reminiscent of recent sex scandals that ended the careers of Congressmen Anthony Weiner and Chris Lee.
