White House bound? Sheriff Clarke’s tease with retirement announcement sets rumor mill on fire

Mr. Clarke goes to Washington?

If rumors are to be believed, former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is on his way to a job in the White House.

Clarke resigned as Sheriff of Milwaukee County, Milwaukee County Clerk George L. Christenson announced Thursday, and speculation as to his future plans began in earnest immediately.

The popular conservative figure teased his Twitter followers, telling them he’d reveal his future plans but they’ll have to wait until after Labor Day.

Shortly after Clarke announced his resignation, Politico published a report that claimed he would be taking a job in the administration of President Donald Trump.

“David Clarke, the controversial outgoing sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, is expected to take a job in the Trump administration, according to two sources familiar with the matter,” it reported.

It’s the second time this year that Clarke was reported to be taking a job in the administration.

In May, Clarke announced that he was taking a job with the Department of Homeland Security. But, after a plagiarism scandal, he withdrew his name from consideration.

But now, against widespread White House speculation, some say he is more likely to take a job with a private group.
