A timeless photo for a timeless story.You were so sure this headline was finally at long last going to be referring to Rick Perry, but still no dice. (Seriously, though, WHEN???) This time it’s America’s one-time Sheriff of the Year Patrick Sullivan, the Republican former top law enforcement official of Arapahoe County, Colorado, who is in trouble for “the usual” with these closeted old right-wing queens, trying to get hold of some hottt peen action in exchange for meth. And now everyone in Arapahoe County will pretend to be shocked that somehow a staunch Republican hater of even banal measures like medical marijuana legalization is secretly about as committed to upholding drug laws when there’s a gay hooker in the vicinity as Ted Haggard is to his straight Jesus.

From the Denver Post:

Drug task-force officers were “visually monitoring” the deal when the 68-year-old former national Sheriff of the Year delivered methamphetamine to an Aurora home and sought sex in return, said current Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson.

“This shows that no one is above the law, particularly a current or a former peace officer,” Robinson said.

Robinson said Sullivan had an ongoing relationship with the man as well as other men he had a history of bonding out of jails in the metro region.

Aaaand the hilarious kicker:

Sullivan is being held on $250,000 bail in the jail that bears his name, the Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility. He was sheriff from 1984 until his retirement in 2002.

Ah, sweet irony. And now here’s hoping the next “Republican sheriff loves meth and gay hookers” headline we read is about Joe Arpaio. [Denver Post; thanks to Wonkette operative “Steve L.”]
