Local media in Milwaukee are reporting that well known Sheriff David Clarke has submitted his letter of resignation. No details were added other than the county clerk acknowledging that he received a resignation letter from Clarke just after 3 pm this afternoon.
The resignation caps off a bizarre turn of events for the prominent Donald Trump supporter. A little over two months ago Clarke officially turned down a senior role in the Department of Homeland Security, citing his belief that “his skills could be better utilized to promote the president’s agenda in a more aggressive role.”
It remains to be seen whether this resignation is positioning himself for something along those lines or if it foreshadows other, less savory information still to come.
