During a recent appearance by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on police reform, Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries confronted Sheriff Clarke over the blue wall of silence, the need for equal protection under the law for everyone and the unjust death of Eric Garner.
Considering how little Sheriff Clarke’s agency does to actually combat crime in Milwaukee County, it’s curious to see him testify before Congress as if he’s an expert on how to fight crime. After all, this is the same “crimefighter” who once tried to help a drunk driver get back on the road after that drunk driver drove off the freeway and into a ditch.
Yesterday 8th Aldermanic district candidate Justin Bielinski appeared on CBS 58 to call into question Ald. Bob Donovan’s public safety plan. Ald. Donovan’s recently released plan would cost $15-$20 million annually to hire 300 to 400 new Milwaukee Police officers, and Bielinski questioned the feasibility of Ald. Donovan’s plan, mainly because of money.
Bielinski was a live guest Thursday on the CBS 58 News at 4 p.m. which seeks to respond to viewer interest in live unedited discussion by those who shape our community.
“He says things that sound good on TV, but there’s not a lot of substance,” Bielinski said.
Here’s some video of Bielinski’s appearance on CBS 58.
Earlier tonight I wrote about Republican Josh Duggar’s admission he sexually molested juvenile females approximately 12 years ago. On the heels of that revelation, I thought this photo of Josh Duggar and Gov. Scott Walker palling around together was pertinent.
But remember, Republicans are the part of “family values.”
A stunning and very alarming report has emerged involving the Duggar family.
According to a recently uncovered police report, Josh Duggar, one of the many stars of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, allegedly molested five girls — some of whom, were reportedly his sisters — starting in 2002. He was around 14 at the time.
Josh, 27, issued a statement to People in response to the allegations: “Twelve years ago, as a young teenager, I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret. I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing, and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life.”
Shortly after reports he sexually molested juvenile females began to emerge, Josh Duggar resiged as the Executive Director of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian group founded by James Dobson.
This is more than a little awkward.
Judge James Daley is running for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court – in part – on his reputation for developing an OWI court in Rock County.
But 27 News has learned Daley’s own daughter is wanted on an open arrest warrant for OWI charges that date back to 2008.
Judge Daley’s campaign told 27 News they have been aware of his daughter’s fugitive status from the beginning of his challenge to incumbent Justice Ann Walsh-Bradley, but chose not to disclose it.
Deputies for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office arrested Maureen E. Daley on two counts of third-offense OWI on April 14, 2008 after she allegedly ran her car into a ditch on Highway 12 in the Township of Koshkonong. She was 33 years-old at the time.
A criminal complaint states that when asked if she had been drinking, Maureen Daley told deputies “it’s obvious.” A blood test later showed Daley had a blood alcohol level of 0.304 – nearly four times the legal limit.
But Daley never made her initial court appearance set for June 9, 2008, causing Jefferson County Court Commissioner Jennifer Weston to issue a bench warrant for her arrest. That warrant is still open.
