Pinal County Greens Call on Sheriff Paul Babeu to Be Nicer to His Ex-Boyfriends: "Deporting Them Is Tacky," Says PCG Co-Chair Richard Grayson
APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz., Feb. 18 -
The Pinal County Greens today passed a resolution calling on Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu to be nicer to his former boyfriends.
"Threatening to deport your ex is really tacky," said Richard Grayson, Pinal County Greens co-chair and a gay activist who is the author of such gay-themed books as The Silicon Valley Diet, And To Think That He Kissed Him on Lorimer Street, and Vampires of Northwest Arkansas. "He needs to apologize right away, maybe send some nice flowers."
Grayson is also a candidate for President in the February 28 Arizona Green Party presidential preference primary.
The Pinal County Greens' resolution also said the organization would volunteer to provide couples therapy for the sheriff and his former boyfriend, Jose Orozco,
whom he allegedly threatened to deport to Mexico. "We'd be happy to help them work things out," Grayson said. "I am good friends with all of my ex-boyfriends."
