A good week for Babeu

Timothy Kincaid

Not only did Paul Babeu win his party’s nomination for reelection, but he has now been cleared of charges made against him by a former boyfriend and a tabloid. (Reuters)

“The Attorney General’s Office will not file charges against either Babeu or Orozco,” Solicitor General Dave Cole said in a statement released on Friday.

“The investigation determined that Babeu did not commit any criminal violations and further concluded that, although Orozco conducted himself in a manner that may constitute a violation of the law, there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction on anything more than a misdemeanor charge.”

Every single time I see the name Babeu I think of Babar the Elephant. That’s just unfortunate on so many levels.

To the best of my knowlege and belief, making a false accusation of criminal conduct against a law officer is a felony in Arizona, not a misdemeanor. If it is indeed a felony, then Cole is covering for Babeu now that he’s actually beat his GOP challenger for the office of Pinal County sheriff. Otherwise they could see a (shudder) Democrat win the office in November.
