Clerk: Sheriff Clarke Has Resigned

Milwaukee County Sheriff Clarke resigns

A lengthy inquest into the dehydration death of a Milwaukee County Jail inmate earlier this year raised troubling questions about how Clarke managed the jail - just as the White House was said to be considering him.

"This communication is submitted as the notice of my resignation as Sheriff of Milwaukee County commencing August 31, 2017, at 11:59 p.m". The investigation stems from an incident at the Milwaukee airport, where Clarke ordered on-duty deputies to come shake down a fellow passenger who had stared him down and expressed distaste for the radical conservative sheriff.

David Clarke is no longer Milwaukee County's sheriff.

Clarke, however, had previously vowed not to resign over the headshake-shakedown scandal until "right after that little mouse does", referring to the county executive pursuing a case against the sheriff.

The Stetson-wearing Clarke is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump who gained a national following after multiple appearances on conservative talk radio and television programs. Tammy Baldwin, a Democrat, but he repeatedly rejected their overtures.

Clarke, known for his harsh jailing practices and strong condemnation of activist groups like Black Lives Matter, briefly claimed he was being considered for a job in the Department of Homeland Security.

The agency never confirmed, and Clarke later stated that he withdrew his name from consideration.

The sheriff of Milwaukee County has resigned. He recently published a memoir, "Cop Under Fire".

Walker's spokesman Tom Evenson says the Republican governor will move forward with filling the vacancy once his office receives formal notification of the resignation.

Clarke described "A war between rule of law and anarchy-seeking hate".
