MILWAUKEE SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE RESCINDS HIS ACCEPTANCE OF HOMELAND SECURITY POST

Controversial Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke has rescinded his name from consideration as an Assistant Secretary of the Dept. of Homeland Security.

Mr. Clarke was expected to start his role at the end of July but his appointment had seen many delays.

Craig Peterson, an adviser to Sheriff Clarke, told the Washington Post that “Late Friday, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. formally notified Secretary of Homeland Security John F. Kelly that he had rescinded his acceptance of the agency’s offer to join DHS as an assistant secretary.”

He added, “Sheriff Clarke is 100 percent committed to the success of President Trump and believes his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role.”

Sheriff Clarke was accused of plagiarism not too long after it was announced that he was joining the Trump Administration.

The Sheriff’s Milwaukee jail had been tied to multiple deaths as well, including the deaths of a baby and a mentally ill man.
