Sheriff Clarke Resigns

Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has resigned from his position as Sheriff, according to Milwaukee County Clerk George L. Christenson.

Sheriff Clarke submitted hit letter of resignation on Thursday at 3:17 PM.

No immediate explanation was available for why Clarke resigned, or what he plans to do next.

In May, Clarke had announced that he had accepted a job with the Department of Homeland Security under the Trump administration, but in June he announced that he withdrew his name, citing delays.

Video of that announcement is below:

Sheriff Clarke, a democrat, is known for being an outspoken critic of Black Lives Matter and other anti-police groups. He was first appointed as sheriff in 2002 by then-Governor Scott McCallum and then elected to Sheriff ever since.
