Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke appears to have jumped the gun when he told a talk show he’s taking a job in the Trump administration. Homeland Security says nothing’s official yet, but Clarke told Madison and Milwaukee conservative radio host Vicki McKenna Wednesday he’ll leave his sheriff’s post in June to become an assistant secretary — a liaison between Washington, and state and local law enforcement. The man he’s replacing, Phil McNamara, confirmed the move and tweeted that Clarke wants to “strangle Democrats.” Clarke campaigned heavily for President Donald Trump last year, and there’s been speculation for months that the sheriff would join the administration. Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele, who has had public spats with Clarke, did not exactly wish him well, saying, “The last thing America needs is another loud voice angrily and unproductively telling you who to blame and who not to trust.”
