The Milwaukee County Sheriff has accepted a position at the Dept. of Homeland Security as assistant secretary.
Clarke was one of the few African-Americans to speak at the Republican Party convention last year. He has been vocal about gun rights and critical of what he called the “hateful ideology” of the Black Lives Matter movement, saying at times, “Stop trying to fix the police, fix the ghetto.”
Clark has been sheriff of Milwaukee County since 2002 and spent more than two decades before that with city’s police department.
