Sheriff Clarke has offered to drop his varied lawsuits against Milwaukee County in exchange for taxpayers footing his $95,000 lawyer bill. The lawsuits were already determined bogus by lower courts and are now in the appeal process. So basically, what Clarke is saying is "I'm a costly horse's a$$ and taxpayers should pay for it."
What reality is this guy living in? Not any I'm familiar with.
It's hard to tell which is more insane, Clark's rants or his utter audacity in expecting that taxpayers foot the bill for his less than intelligent legal maneuverings, which disrupted the common sense flow of government.
Well, this is surely the last nail coffin for Clarke's tenure as Milwaukee County Sheriff, and good riddance. Crazy religious guy with the psalm ridden old station wagon who drives around Milwaukee spouting bible passages over a loud speaker has more chance of being elected Sheriff than does Mr. Clarke.
Well, I can only hope.
It is, after all, Milwaukee, which is, after all, in Wisconsin, which is, after all, populated by people who are just as nuts as Clarke. You only have to look at the twice elected Scott Walker to know we're not in Kansas anymore. No Emerald City to get help from, either. Just flying monkeys and sham artists.
