In the “music to my ears” category for most conservatives, take charge Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke told reporters on Wednesday that he will be leaving his current position in June to become the assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Clarke announced he will be working in the DHS Office of Partnership and Engagement where he will be a liaison with the state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments.
DHS has not officially made the announcement regarding Clarke’s new role. In fact, Clarke may have spoken before scheduled.
DHS issued the following tweet:
Sr. positions are announced when made official by the Sec. No such announcement w/ regard to the Office of Public Engagement has been made.

Who could blame Clarke for being excited about his new position?
Clarke is a strong supporter of President Trump and said in 2016 that he would serve if asked:
“I don’t expect anything, I don’t have an entitlement mentality. I told Donald Trump I wanted to help him, because I thought that this country needed his leadership. That being said, if the President asks you to serve, you step up to fulfill that duty. So if he feels that I can help him and he calls on me, sure I’ll accept it, but I’m not expecting anything.”
But not everyone was happy with Clarke’s unexpected announcement.
The man who currently holds the position, Phil McNamara, took to Twitter to air his grievances:

You know it has to be a great appointment when the Democrats are unhappy!
McNamara’s sour and defamatory tweets about Clarke, too many to post here, went on and on with other McNamara supporters blasting Clarke.
Congratulations, Sheriff Clarke!
