Sheriff Clarke is one of those people that many that only go by the mainstream media tell them likely became aware of the man during the Republican Convention last summer.
Since then, I think a lot of folks have come to the realization that he is one of the most astute law enforcement officials out there. He tells you things straight down the line and does not mince words. I like that in people.
I like it when people give me the respect to not try to give me a line of BS. It has been written over and over again in countless places that if he ever took a position within the Trump Administration that he would quite simply be the best person at whatever it is that he does.
You won’t come across anyone tougher than Sheriff David Clarke who is often referred to as America’s Sheriff. He’s been one of Trump’s most outspoken supporters.
Today, some interesting news broke. Clarke has resigned as Milwaukee County Sheriff.
From Weasel Zippers via Free Beacon: Milwaukee County Sheriff and controversial public figure David A. Clarke resigned from his post on Thursday.
The Milwaukee County Clerk confirmed the resignation, TMJ4 News Milwaukee reports. Clarke’s letter of resignation, which was submitted at 3:17 p.m Central Time, gives no clue as to his reason for resignation.
“Pursuant to Wis. Stat. §17.01, this communicaiton is submitted as the notice of my resignation as Sheriff of Milwaukee County commencing August 31, 2017, at 11:59 p.m,” the letter read.
However, it is being reported he could be headed to the Trump administration.
From Free Beacon: David Clarke may be joining the Trump Administration after resigning Thursday from his position as sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisc.
Clarke has been a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, despite being a Democrat, and two sources have told Politico that he is expected to take a job in the White House. Clarke has appeared regularly on Fox News, and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention.
Sounds like a good plan to me. Can’t hurt having him around.
