Milwaukee’s NBC affiliate reports:
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke resigned Thursday, TODAY’S TMJ4 has learned. Milwaukee County Clerk George L. Christenson confirmed the news Thursday afternoon. His letter of resignation was received at 3:17 p.m. There’s no word yet on why the sheriff chose today to tender his resignation or what his next moves may be.
My guess is that Clarke just took a job in the Trump administration or another huge scandal is about to drop.
