“Yesterday incumbent Sheriff David Clarke, of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, won the Democratic primary, 52-48%,” David Kopel reports for the Washington Post. “Mayor of Everywhere” Michael Bloomberg poured $150,000 dollars into the campaign to unseat Clarke. Why? Because Bloomberg hates guns and wants a disarmed populace, and (as Kopel reports) “Sheriff Clarke has urged Milwaukee citizens to arm themselves for lawful self-defense.”
