MADISON — As Milwaukee County begins to recover from over a decade of having a fraud for Sheriff, it was reported today that David Clarke‘s loyalty to President Trump has finally paid off with an insider job at a shady pro-Trump super PAC.

“From decorating his uniform with fake military badges to lavishing in the Tea Party speaking circuit while inmates died in his jail, David Clarke’s entire taxpayer-funded political career was only made possible by defrauding the very people he failed to serve,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning. “Milwaukee County taxpayers will finally be relieved of footing the bill for David Clarke’s real job: a mouthpiece for Donald Trump.”
