In June, Clarke announced that he had rescinded his acceptance of a post in the Office of Public Engagement for the Department of Homeland Security. However, the office had never confirmed that it offered him the job, in which he would have served as a liaison between DHS and state and local law enforcement.

Clarke recently published a memoir, “Cop Under Fire.”

David Alexander Clarke Jr. (born August 21, 1956) is a former American law enforcement official who was the Sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin from 2002 to 2017. In 2002, Clarke was appointed sheriff by Governor Scott McCallum, and later elected that same year to his first four-year term. He was re-elected in November 2006, 2010, and 2014.  Although registered and elected as a Democrat in a heavily Democratic county, many of Clarke’s political views align with those of conservative Republicans.  Clarke frequently appears as a guest on Fox News and was a speaker at the 2016 Republican National Convention. He resigned as sheriff in August 2017.

Clarke has “built a following among conservatives with his provocative social media presence and strong support of Donald Trump.”  His prominence as a right-wing firebrand has made him a controversial and polarizing figure.

He has criticized Planned Parenthood, suggesting instead that it be renamed “Planned Genocide.”

Clarke is a frequent and vociferous critic of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, referring to it as “Black Lies Matter” and describing the movement as a hate group.  Clarke has harshly criticized various black critics of police abuses.  He has called former Attorney General Eric Holder an “a[ss]hole” and accused him in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee of “outright hostility” toward police, referred to Al Sharpton as a “charlatan” and criticized Beyoncé for her reference to the Black Panthers in her halftime-show performance at the 2016 Super Bowl.

Clarke is registered as a Democrat, which, according to Journal Sentinel reporter Daniel Bice, is advantageous in heavily Democratic Milwaukee County. However, Clarke is almost universally regarded as a conservative and has been referred to as “right of most righties.”

…and he has the backing of the National Rifle Association,” which has raised funds for his re-election campaigns.

  Clarke at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference

Clarke is a strong supporter of Republican Donald Trump, saying during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign that he would “do everything I can” to help Trump win the presidency.  Clarke spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.  In October 2016, Clarke tweeted, “It’s incredible that our institutions of gov, WH, Congress, DOJ, and big media are corrupt & all we do is bitch. Pitchforks and torches time.” with an attached photo of an angry mob holding pitchforks and torches.   Clarke met with Trump, when Trump was president-elect, about a possible position in his administration.
