David Clarke Resigns as Milwaukee Sheriff


MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Outspoken Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who built a following among conservatives nationally with his provocative social media presence and strong support of Donald Trump, resigned on Thursday.

Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson said he received a resignation letter from Clarke, but the letter did not say why the sheriff was leaving office more than a year before his term is up.

Clarke’s office referred questions to an email address that he had provided. He did not immediately respond to an email seeking his reasons for leaving or what he planned to do next.

Clarke’s most recent Twitter post from Thursday afternoon showed him posing with law enforcement officers at the National Fraternal Order of Police convention in Nashville.

  1. Clarke Seems Like a Great Person, And I Hope He Stays Visible !
    I Do Worry About How He Left, That’s Not How Moving on Works if All is Well !

  2. Give Sheriff clarke a 2 x 4 and have him make the rounds on capitol hill. Ill volunteer to join him and carry extra ammo.

  3. Under fire from the County Administrator and facing lawsuits, I’m not surprised. I hope he can get placed in Trump’s admin.
