Sheriff Clarke Joins A Pro-Trump Super PAC

Former Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke joined a pro-Trump super PAC as its spokesman and advisor, according to a Tuesday announcement.

Clarke, who recently stepped down as the sheriff of Milwaukee county, will serve as the senior advisor and spokesperson for American First Action, a press release from the super PAC announced.

“David Clarke is an American patriot, and we are very proud to welcome him to America First. Having spent a lifetime in law enforcement—protecting and serving his community and fighting for justice and the Second Amendment—Sheriff Clarke doesn’t just believe in making America safe again; he’s devoted his life to it,” Brian O. Walsh, President of America First Action, said in a statement.

The America First Action super PAC seeks to both help candidates that support the Trump agenda and promote Trump’s legislative agenda. Corey Lewandowski, a former Trump campaign manager, also joined the super PAC recently after getting fired from One America News Network.

“It gives me the chance to do what I love most—promote President Trump’s agenda, including his fierce support for the American law enforcement officer, and ensure that the will of the American people who got President Trump elected is not derailed by the left or the self-serving Washington establishment,” Clarke said in a press release about his new role.

Clarke, a noted Trump supporter, stepped down from his role as Milwaukee Country sheriff last month, but gave no specific reason for his resignation.
