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 does Milwaukee County Sheriff David “Keystone Cop” Clarke think of Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele’s proposal to cut $12 million in funding from Clarke’s budget for 2014?
