Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu’s Ex-Boyfriend Wants $1 Million For His Troubles

The man who outed Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu as gay last month now says he wants $1 million for the trouble he experienced in the fallout from their romance.

Jose Orozco filed paperwork on Monday with the Pinal County government, where Babeu is sheriff, saying he plans to sue unless the county first gives him the seven-figure settlement, according to the Arizona Republic.

Orozco, a Mexican immigrant, went public last month with allegations that the conservative border hawk threatened him with deportation if their relationship ever became public. Babeu has denied the allegations.
