He remained concealed in a CNN interview over the weekend, but today Arizona's ABC15 has revealed the identity of Jose Orozco, the man responsible for accusing Sheriff Paul Babeu of being a major hypocrite. Video of ABC15's report, after the jump!
Reports ABC15 on Latino-rights group Respect Respeto's call for an investigation into Babeu's actions:
In the document submitted to the Department of Justice, Respect Respeto says Babeu made “text messages, pictures and threats that are unbecoming of an elected sheriff.”
On their Facebook page, the group complains Babeu ignored helping Latino victims of crimes in the past.
They call his recent accusation "the last straw."
Respect Respeto’s director, Lydia Guzman closed the document by saying, “It is my feeling that neither an elected official nor a law enforcement officer should abuse their positions to make such threats upon an individual in exchange for their silence and this is why I am respectfully requesting an investigation into this matter."
