Babeu's Pre-Protest Robocall For His Self-Promotion Tour

Posted By on Thu, Jul 17, 2014 at 4:24 PM

I already posted the fundraising message Sheriff Paul Babeu sent out after the Tuesday event he trumped up in Oracle to protest the arrival of immigrant children who never arrived (and may never have been scheduled to arrive). Now a friend sent me a robocall Babeu put out Sunday advertising an event on the Monday night before the protest. (This copy of the robocall is missing the first few words.)

A few things worth noting about the robocall.

The call was "proudly paid for by Paul Babeu for sheriff," meaning this is a political robocall advertising a political event.

Babeu says the children "are being bused right now from Texas to Oracle, compliments of President Obama." He says that with a level of certainty I don't believe I've heard before.

The Monday night event is also a promotion of Christine Jones' campaign for governor.

The political motivation behind the protest in Oracle is clearer than ever.
