Known only as “Jose,” a Mexican immigrant has outed a famous Arizona immigration-hawk sheriff, CPAC speaker, and congressional candidate who rose to conservative stardom after a cameo appearance in John McCain’s famous “Dang Fence” campaign ad. In an explosive story published in the Phoenix New Times, Jose claims that Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu’s lawyer threatened him with deportation if he spilled the beans about their alleged love affair. Following the report, Babeu hastily called a press conference on Saturday during which he announced, “I’m gay.”

Sometimes you’ll see a Republican outed as gay, and sometimes you’ll see one exposed for being a hypocrite about immigration, but this is the rare case where both happened at the same time.
