Earlier this week, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s reelection campaign sent out a mailer touting Clarke’s law enforcement credentials, and as James Rowen of The Political Environment noted, it’s a very curious mailer.

Sheriff Clarke’s efforts to tout his crime fighting credentials are laughable, especially considering how little the [...]

My thoughts on Marina Dimitrijevic’s record of working with Scott Walker

On Monday Shaina shared her thoughts on Democratic Assembly candidate Marina Dimitrijevic’s statement touting her record of working with Scott Walker as if that somehow qualifies her to serve in the State Assembly, but I wanted to share my thoughts as well.

First, here’s Dimitrijevic’s statement. What sets her apart from her opponents, Dimitrijevic says, [...]

Journal Sentinel Editorial Board: You just can’t take Sheriff David Clarke seriously

On Tuesday, the editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published a scathing (and that’s probably an understatement) editorial about Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke. Consider how “in the bag” the Journal Sentinel has been for conservatives in Wisconsin over the years, this editorial is can’t be seen as anything but a complete rebuke of [...]

John Chisholm’s epic smackdown of Sheriff David Clarke: “Get off your high horse, Sheriff, and get your office back in the fight”

On May 30, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke wrote a letter (preceded, of course, by a press release) to Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm and Milwaukee County Circuit Court Chief Judge Jeffrey Kremers calling for the District Attorney’s office and all branches of Milwaukee County Circuit Court to suspend the use of deferred prosecutions, [...]

Yet another example of Sheriff David Clarke’s lawless Sheriff’s Office

The corruption and lawlessness in Sheriff David Clarke’s Sheriff’s Office continues…

A sheriff’s clerk was charged Monday with felony misconduct in office for allegedly stealing cash paid for restraining orders and other court documents.

Damond Watts, 38, was accused of stealing $1,200 between September and December of last year, according to the criminal complaint.

Sheriff David Clarke promotes crony despite past misconduct

This is absolutely disgraceful.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. recently promoted Nancy Evans to the captain overseeing airport security, even though Clarke’s own internal investigation found she had committed a “clear act” of misconduct in office just 18 months ago.

Prosecutors decided last year not to press charges against Evans because they couldn’t [...]

David Clarke hints at desire to take electoral drubbing at the hands of Tom Barrett

As reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is hinting that he’d consider running against Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett in 2016. In an interview this week with the Journal Sentinel, Clarke, who has been highly critical of Barrett’s tenure as mayor, said he was sizing up a possible run. But he [...]

Sheriff David Clarke faces lawsuit alleging he improperly promoted a favored employee

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is an absolute joke. The deputies union has filed a lawsuit over Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr.’s promotion of Nancy L. Evans as a captain in the department.

The union claims the promotion was illegal because Evans lacked law enforcement certification and because Clarke didn’t file a required [...]

More on Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s personnel moves

Earlier tonight I posted a guest blog by Graeme Zielinski noting that Fran McLaughlin, the current Public Information Officer for the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, is poised to receive a promotion (possibly to Deputy Inspector) despite having absolutely no sworn law enforcement experience.

What’s notable about Fran McLaughlin is that her position was targeted for [...]
