With friends like this, who needs enemies? A nomination for the most hypocritical endorsement ever

This is from the "eTracks" newsletter produced by the Pima County Republican Party.

Mark Brnovich Endorsed by Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu
Today, Republican candidate for attorney general Mark Brnovich was endorsed by Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. In his endorsement, Sheriff Babeu remarked:
"With the federal government actively encouraging state attorneys general to disregard laws they do not see fit to enforce, the states chief law enforcers are given the license to impose their ideologies over the rule of law. In a border state like Arizona, this mentality could be extremely dangerous for our local communities. Mark Brnovich does not fit that mold. Rather, Mark will enforce the law every time, in every place, whether or not it happens to fit his political ideology. As Pinal County Sheriff, Mark is exactly the type of Attorney General I expect to partner with to help keep our communities safe."

Check the bold above (emphasis added).  What does Babeu think Prop 122 does?

“Our law enforcement coalition continues to expand and I’m humbled to receive the support of Sheriff Babeu,” said Mark Brnovich. “As attorney general, my office will serve as a force multiplier and work proactively with county sheriffs and our local law enforcement communities.” He continued, “We must aggressively prosecute human, drug, and weapons smugglers that intend to do our communities harm.”

Brnovich just got himself some serious baggage.
