Well, that was embarrassing! Pompous Dem rep quickly taken down a peg by Sheriff Clarke

Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen might have been trying to make a point by ridiculing Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke during a House committee hearing Tuesday, but Clarke’s stoic confidence shut him down instead.

The Tennessee Democrat’s attitude seemed to suggest an omnipotent moral busybody in Washington, D.C., knows better than a sheriff on the front lines of fight against crime, as the Tennessee Democrat badgered Clarke over an earlier statement he made.

“You said that illegal drug use is the scourge of the black community and it is a problem and leads to a great deal of violent crime,” Cohen said.

“Would you agree that marijuana possession is not the scourge of the black community and does not lead to violent crime the same way that meth, crack cocaine, and heroin do?”

“No, I wouldn’t agree with that at all,” Clarke said.

Whatever point Cohen was trying to make was lost.

“Well, that’s interesting, and I wish I had more time to talk to you,” Cohen fumbled. “Thank you for allowing me this opportunity.”

The exchange clearly didn’t go the way the Cohen expected. In fact, his nervous laughter showed just how embarrassed he was.

“It was such an obvious answer — I just never thought I’d get that answer,” he said.

He clearly didn’t give it any thought at all.

Sheriff David Clarke has. And it showed.
