BREAKING: David Clarke Resigns as Milwaukee County Sheriff

David Clarke resigned from his position as Milwaukee County Sheriff on Thursday. Clarke submitted a resignation letter to Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson, Journal Sentinel reports.

He is a very vocal supporter of President Donald Trump. Interesting that he gave the scoop to Mark Belling. This is sure to bring the leftists out from under their rocks.

Journal Sentinel: Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. — the controversial, Stetson-wearing official who rose to national prominence with his no-holds-barred conservative rhetoric — resigned his office Thursday.

Clarke, who is in his fourth term, submitted a resignation letter to Milwaukee County Clerk George Christenson on Thursday afternoon. The sheriff was attending the convention of the National Fraternal Order of Police in Nashville and could not be reached for comment.

“Pursuant to Wisconsin Statute 17.01, this communication is submitted as the notice of my resignation as Sheriff of Milwaukee County commencing Aug. 31, 2017, at 11:59 p.m.,” stated Clarke’s resignation letter.

The news of the resignation was first reported by conservative talk show host Mark Belling.

Clarke previously announced he would be joining the Trump administration in the Department of Homeland Security. Sheriff David Clarke will be an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security.

The Washington Post reported in mid-June that an adviser to Sheriff Clarke confirmed that he would be withdrawing his name for consideration for a position at the Department of Homeland Security.
