Fox6 News Milwaukee reports:
MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said Wednesday, May 17th that he will resign in June so he can accept a position in President Donald Trump’s administration.
Clarke, who has been one of President Trump’s strongest supporters, will leave behind multiple investigations into deaths at the Milwaukee County Jail and a harassment complaint filed against him. The sheriff has become a conservative star nationally as the controversy swirled locally.
Clarke told WISN 1130/AM host Vicki McKenna that he would be an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security, where he’ll act as a liaison to local and state law enforcement, tribes, and the private sector. The position will be in the Office of Public Partnership and Engagement.
“I’m both honored and humbled to be apt to this position,” Clarke said. “It’s going to be a steep learning curve for me, serving in the Department of Homeland Security, and I look forward to joining that team.”
DHS declined to confirm Clarke’s appointment on Wednesday.
