Washington Post reporter tweets Sheriff Clarke’s home address after he declines DHS job

Oops!

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. declined an offer to serve at the Department of Homeland Security, prompting some critics of the outspoken conservative to wonder if one had ever been made.

His decision was a reversal of his previous acceptance of the offer to serve in the Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison to state, local and tribal law enforcement agencies.

Washington Post White House reporter and CNN political analyst Abby Phillip submitted proof that the offer was genuine, in the form of a tweeted copy of the letter from DHS.

But her proof raised more questions than they answered — primarily where was her head at when she tweeted the letter.

Here’s Phillip’s tweet — minus the attached letter:

The major problem with the letter is that the reporter neglected to redact Clarke’s home address — a big no-no, especially for law enforcement officers. One wondered if this was an invitation to egg Clarke’s home.

This person begged Phillip to delete her tweet, then retweet it with the address redacted.

But so far, it’s still intact. Both the body of the letter and Clarke’s address are difficult to make out, but they’re still there, which prompted out more critics shouting foul.

A liberal, meanwhile, seemed less impressed with having the sheriff’s address than something else mentioned in the letter.

Even having his address, at least one person believed that egging Clarke’s residence would be a horrible idea.

And he’s probably right. Clarke isn’t someone you want to mess with.

Question: Will CNN bring up Phillip’s misstep during her next appearance on the network? Probably not.
