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.
After nearly 40 years serving my community I’m retiring. What a ride! I will announce my future plans next week after the Labor Day holiday. pic.twitter.com/pYbv7txCEZ

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.
But now, against widespread White House speculation, some say he is more likely to take a job with a private group.
Getting strong pushback on idea that Sheriff Clarke joining the Trump admin. Two sources familiar deny it. Likely to join an outside group.

Social media was either excited, or terrified depending on who you ask, at the prospect of Clarke joining the president’s team.
