Clarke Quits In Advance of Taking Job with Trump

David Clarke, the controversial outgoing sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, is expected to take a job in the Trump administration, Politico reports.

“Clarke resigned as sheriff on Thursday. A regular presence on Fox News, Clarke has become a well-known figure in conservative circles in recent years… But he has come under fierce criticism amid a series of deaths in the Milwaukee County prison, including that of Terrill Thomas, who died of dehydration last year after guards turned off the water in his cell.”

Controversial Sheriff Won’t Take Job with Trump After All

“Controversial Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has withdrawn his acceptance of a job as an assistant secretary for the US Department of Homeland Security,” a representative for the sheriff told BuzzFeed News.

“However, neither the White House nor the Department of Homeland Security has ever publicly confirmed Clarke was offered the job.”
