Paul Babeu’s homosexuality is not an issue. I could not care less about that.

What is an issue is his dishonesty with himself and his constituents. By wrapping himself in the cloak of the Republican Party, he thought he could conceal his natural orientation with his tough guy talk of desert shootouts, tough border enforcement, armored vests, automatic weapons, etc. By embracing a party that fosters no tolerance of homosexuals, forbids their marriage, does not want them teaching in schools, does not want them adopting children, and would probably prefer they just go away, Babeu apparently hoped that his inclinations would be masked.

We have enough dishonest politicians in Washington already. We do not need another one. Babeu should go away and learn to deal with who he is.
