Supervisor Moore Omokunde Statement on Clarke Resignation
"Sadly, the public may never get a full accounting from Clarke regarding his failures..."
“I am pleased to learn of the resignation of David Clarke, who obviously no longer wanted to be Sheriff of Milwaukee County, and had lost touch with the people.
“Nevertheless, this news is bittersweet, as we are left with incomplete answers regarding what led to the massive failures in his jail.
“Sadly, the public may never get a full accounting from Clarke regarding his failures, which is why it is important for the legal system to take whatever action they deem appropriate.”
