There are few law enforcement officials as controversial and divisive as Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke.

That’s why Democrats on the House Homeland Security Committee urged Homeland Security Director David Clark to not appoint Clarke to a post within the agency, The Hill reports. 

“We understand that the Department [of Homeland Security] has yet to make an announcement about this position and strongly urge you not to consider Sheriff Clarke as candidate for this important office or any other within DHS,” they wrote in a letter to Kelly.

Among Clarke’s “troubling record” are allegations of plagiarism and “multiple inmate deaths” under his watch.

“Taken together, they warrant not only his immediate disqualification from consideration, but an unequivocal response from the department stating that neither Sheriff Clarke nor anyone with a similar record would be considered for a secretarial appointment within DHS.”

On Saturday, CNN reported that Clarke plagiarized parts of his master’s thesis on Homeland Security.

President Donald Trump is considering controversial Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. for a job with Homeland Security.

Clarke, who is a polarizing figure and longtime Trump supporter, is expected to be appointed as assistant secretary at Homeland Security’s Office of Partnership and Engagement, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.  No Senate confirmation is required for the job, which involves coordinating outreach to state and local law enforcement agencies.

Clarke is a frequent guest on Fox News and is a lightning rod for the GOP.

In 2015, Clarke participated in an NRA-backed trip to Russia, where he and others reportedly met with one of Russian President Putin’s deputies.
