Blaze Political Analyst Will Cain in Heated CNN Debate on AZ Sheriff Scandal
The Blaze’s Will Cain appeared on a CNN panel with LZ Granderson and Don Lemon Sunday to discuss the resignation of Mitt Romney’s Arizona Campaign Co-Chair Paul Babeu, who stepped down Saturday amidst a scandal involving allegations from a gay lover that the sheriff had threatened to deport him if he went public with their relationship. Babeu is seeking the GOP nomination for an Arizona Congressional seat. The sheriff stepped down from Romney’s campaign Saturday, denying the allegations but acknowledging that he is a gay man and will still run for Congress.
Cain called out Granderson Sunday for making comments that Cain believe generalized a hypocrisy in the GOP in regards to sexuality.
“I think these stories should be looked at as individual circumstances and judged as individual circumstances. LZ, by your own standard, I don’t know how you apply a broad generalization to an entire party. I don’t know how you can do that by your own standard,” Cain said.
