FILE - In this Feb. 20, 2012 photo, Pinal County Sheriff Sheriff Paul Babeu, left, is interviewed by KPNX reporter William Pitts at the Mesa Arts Center, in Mesa, Ariz. On Saturday, Babeu's conservative image took a beating as he was forced to confirm publicly that he is gay and was involved in a relationship with a Mexican immigrant who claims the sheriff threatened to have him deported if he revealed their relationship. There are questions, many of them, about Babeu and his "choices" and judgment, about whether the sheriff may have somehow abused his power. Yet voters, Republican voters in particular, are also asking some intriguing questions of themselves, about acceptance and identity and values, about what really matters most to them.
