    Just to reiterate, I see nothing wrong with same-sex relations, but I see something VERY wrong with a Democrat selling-out Latinos with the “new Arpaio,” one of the most vile racists in this state!

    I guess their plan was to go to DC together representing the new CD2 and CD4?

    While I applaud Heinz for speaking up at the TUSD meeting, after these revelations there is no way in hell I will ever vote for Matt Heinz. Would it be okay to have dinner, ice cream, and a sleepover with Sheriff Arpaio?

    No Democrat should be sharing Babeu’s ICE cream.

    How do you imagine his reaction is because he suddenly found out Heinz is gay? That's completely ridiculous.

      I am saying that it is gay bashing.

      The entire "scandal" is nothing but gay bashing - there is no scandal here.

      Of course Babeau is a racist piece of Repub crap aqnd I have attacked him for that in the past.

      But Morales is using gay sex to smear him with his fellow Repubs.

      If altar boys could get pregnant, contraception would be a sacrament.

        'using gay sex to smear him' -- he didn't mention sex at all. Morales is latching on to the fact that Heinz is cozy with this bigot, cozy enough to have him spending the night at his house, having dinner and ice cream, and voting to give him millions of dollars for 'border security' -- he did not suggest there was any sexual relationship at all between them, nor did his criticism have anything to do with either of them being gay.

        I read Three Sonorans all the time, and he goes off like this on Democrats that "betray latinos" in his view, or cavort with bigots, all the freaking time. He's known for it! Which I think you are aware of. Gay or not is completely irrelevant.

        Morales is an unequivocal supporter of marriage equality, remember when he dogged Glassman so much for not being willing to support it, while all the other dem candidates did? Your claim that his rants against Heinz have to do with him being gay are simply incorrect.

        As for this whole scandal being nothing but gay bashing, I don't think that's true either. If Babeu had had an affair with a young Mexican woman, which ended badly and then she went public with accusations that he threatened to deport her in the aftermath of the breakup, the scandal would have looked very similar. Except he would have had a harder time explaining it all away as his "personal life" and therefore no one's business.

        •  Sorry but it looks like gay bashing to me (0+ / 0-)

          Morales is totally off the wall and irresponsible, as we all know.

          "private immigrant sex slave operation revealed"

          Indeed.

          If altar boys could get pregnant, contraception would be a sacrament.

            Agree the Three Sonorans headline is hyperbolic, which is not unusual for him, but you'll also note that his headline focuses on the fact the lover was an immigrant, and doesn't mention the word gay or the fact the lover was a man. Because that's what he cares about. He is certainly reactionary and has his blind spots, but I would say he's irresponsible. He's just a guy giving his opinion. He also does some good reporting at times, and covers local issues that basically no one else writes about at all. He is definitely not anti-gay.

            •  Correction, typo, I meant to say (0+ / 0-)

              I would not say he's irresponsible. He does his research. I don't always (or often) agree with his interpretations, but he does report facts and backs up his stories.
