GOP Representative Jim Sensenbrenner to retire
"You I'm gonna be joined in just a few seconds here by congressman Jim Sensenbrenner who has been a powerful member of the United States house of representatives for decades former committee chairman and long time representative of currently called the fifth congressional district and the just the clouds of change a little bit over the years but it's always been a very very large chunk of the Milwaukee suburbs congressman Sensenbrenner good afternoon hi mark how are you doing I'm a great I you have it at all to do you want to share with our audience this afternoon so I'm just going to allow you to share it yes mark I wanna let you and your listeners know all of that I've decided not to seek reelection a year from November I always knew that when the time came for me to step aside I would come to that conclusion and I've done that now it's been a great run for the last forty two years I think I've made a difference both for our district in our country in building the Republican Party and making us safer through the patriot act in this modernization as well as standing up for disabled people and me on board so the time has come I think to pass the torch I'm proud of what I've done and then of what I want to do is to thank everybody who has supported me over the years because I never could have done it alone. obviously you've been there for a long time you had a few health problems have been some health issues in your family are those contributing factors here or have you just decided that you wanna roll off into the sunset and not have to do so much hard work for the rest of your life well first of all I'm not planning on going off into the sunset I will remain active in Wisconsin politics health question the answer is no my wife who has severe aneurysm is stabilized and I am feeling you know up to the job and you all are going to be hearing an awful lot for me during the next sixteen months when I survive my final term of particularly if the Democrats are foolish enough to actually go through an impeachment in the Judiciary Committee that was my next question you do and you're not resigning or anything like that your term would run to January of twenty one and you are going to serve that entire que van is correct I am not resigning I am serving out my term and at the end of this term I will have been in Congress longer than anybody else in Wisconsin history including David OP was that done was that a goal at any point what it all really. for the last two years but you know I I I figured yeah after all the pushing and pulling in the last Congress you know I wanted to be there in this Congress whether we were in the majority or the minority and when you're in the minority of course you have nothing to say about the schedule but I learned a long time ago that when you have a good idea you get a bipartisan sponsor co sponsor of it because in our divided Congress unless you do that it's not going anywhere. have you made a decision as to whether or not you're going to endorse someone who seeks to replace your I'm not going to win Doris anybody I'm sure there's going to be a scrum of Republicans running and I hope they all seek the party endorsement next month or next March the fifth district caucus the only thing I can say to those who are contemplating running are actually running is don't kill each other please. the I. up. ten year of your career you I mean the the what the media will describe me the use different adjectives than those of the conservatives would describe but forceful aggressive feisty combative committed all of those words do come to do come divided describing your career I mean it's hard what you mentioned that you're not going to go watch silently I can't imagine you ever being silent ready thank you not only were a consistent conservative and maybe a little bit ahead of your time in some of your conservative points of view you chose to make yourself vocal and clear and aggressive as you know there are some members of Congress we call a back benchers they go there and you never hear anything from them again and they cast their votes in the collector paychecks and so on you chose from the beginning. to be heard and that the voice of sense in better would be known and would be out there I talk for just a moment about that and about your own style and the way that you've kind of handle the comported yourself in your life tenure in Congress well after my first election I got a call from former president Ford he said Jim you have a safe district you can either be a great constituents Orvis congressman or hire people who can do that my staff has been great or you can be somebody who actually aggressively pursues and passes legislation that was very good advice and that's what I've done really right from the beginning and I don't regret doing that because the staff can do an awful lot of things that they can their goose registration they can't debated they can't vote on it they can't negotiate with the Senate and with the White House and I I just had my staff pull together some figures following Gerry Ford's advice I've been the lead sponsor coast sponsor of four thousand two hundred ninety nine pieces of legislation seven hundred sixty eight of them passed the house and two hundred seventeen of them have been signed into law by six different presidents so I think I made a difference both for our district in for our country and I've kept in touch hundred town meetings average every year nobody can come close to that in there a lot of people who come into the town meetings and say I've been to direct I've been to route and things like that but I think that this is an issue of accountability and I guess somebody could be wishy washy and six months later when things don't turn out correctly people say why didn't he or she tell us that that's not my style some is not going to pass I think people are newer right away. and they are put their efforts into something else. when I got wind that you wanted to have something to say obviously I didn't think it was you announcing reelection because you pronounce your candidacy for reelection ninety seven thousand times that it was something else one of the questions that will come up is why now are you burned out to get tired of the attitude in Washington did that come into play or is it simply that it's time and you want to go out on your own terms while you can still do it on your own terms well it's you know the thing is is that the framers set up the constitution that required compromise which is kind of a naughty word nowadays and it's been frustrating I'll be the first one to admit that I wanted to go out on my own terms I don't haven't announced opponent free election and nobody can come up and say well I forced him out map because there's nobody that has any credibility at math you know the other thing you know is is that I'd like to get a new representative in the fifth district before redistricting because if I served another term and would be leaving in twenty twenty two I can see the wolves on both sides of the aisle on Madison seeing themselves going to Washington and carving the seat up and believe me I have work to make the wall counties more Republican the wall counties have got to be kept together in redistricting if Republicans are going to have any chance of winning a statewide election yeah I guess we should tell people since she has changed a bit over every ten years you're just like I guess could roughly be described as a small portion of western Milwaukee county the northern half of walk a shot I think all they're virtually all of Jefferson I think you have all the virtually all of Dodge and Washington you no longer have sake I think I think I pretty much yeah you're pretty and the city of whitewater the city of white water ice. get a little bit down there and your white water in that so that's it yet it could change a little bit over the years with the redistricting and so on but it is generally bad. a Republican district and wanted which well you had challengers none that were ever very serious I guess my final question to you is was that liberating and allowing you to. not have to worry at all about. taking positions that were in chores by having a district that was perceived is generally safe do you think do you think that allowed you to become an even more effective and outspoken voice for conservatism it was because I mean I think you you pre date even Tommy Thompson's governorship in here what if you think about the foundational roots of the contemporary Republican Party in Wisconsin I mean your the route I mean it's it's been you and everything's calm well you better route well. very clearly so all the way the old nine district was when I was first elected it didn't start out that way half the courthouse in half the legislative delegation in Waukesha county were Democrats we had a party leadership that complained about conservatives at the bar at the Country Club and the next spring with my support down Taylor was elected Waukesha county chairman and with the party signing up for members and me pointing out folks who have fled from the city that is Republicans that really stand up for your values of small government good schools will crime rates lower taxes and you are a shared your previous voting habits and start voting for Republicans they have a lot of people but led by don Taylor bureau have been able to turn walkie Sean Washington counties into the Republican strongholds of they are and in terms of my political legacy I can look back at that it was a great deal of pride. you you may I I said that was my last question I do have another one you obviously timed the announcement the election is next year the primary election which is where all the action to be on the Republican side is you know a full you're a ways you're giving the other would be candidates an opportunity to go on this it will catch anyone by surprise even though you will Sir about obviously the entirety of the term did you have this in your mind last year when you were writing that the the election that you won back in twenty eighteen was the last is this but thought for a while it or did this come up in the last week what where's where's the time line bad where arms of how you come to this well you know what I what I can say is that Sean Duffy and I were the two most responsible for convincing Paul Ryan to run for speaker and I made a commitment at least mentally that I would serve out and be Paul Ryan's good friend in backstop and he gave me a couple of messages to straighten out which were real masses that you know Paul's retirement was a surprise but no surprise but things have gone along so far down the you know I said that you know really we don't need to have an uproar in the fifth district because it will hurt the statewide take care of well you know heard governor Walker and Attorney General Shamil and you know needed to have the the work that I was doing and the endorsements that I could make the keep the the fifth district legislators reelected. sure enough well it's I'm sure we're going to have you on the program is going to be a lot of things that happen over the next sixty months and I appreciate your joining us to make this time I would say epic and historic announcement this afternoon well thank you very much for giving me the opportunity mark okay thanks

"All right there. Also, the blaze radio network. It is the weekend with joepags led to have you along for the ride. I wanted to get with sheriff David Clarke because of his years and years and years of investigative work as a police officer as a as the sheriff of Milwaukee county, Wisconsin. And this was before the police changed from saying jussie smollet was a victim to he. He's a perpetrator or the suspect, but already the sheriff. And I were we're well on our way there wanted to talk about how do you investigate something like this? What are you look into what do you have to figure out then we go to the border because the sheriff went to the border recently? And he saw firsthand what was going on sheriff. I appreciate you. How are you? Tacit? It'll be on with joke. Always a pleasure to have you. I know you're traveling a lot lately. Everything good. Did it go? Okay. Yeah. What grade you know, part of my travels, I went down to the southern border. I wanted to see for myself. You know, I've talked to a lot of sheriffs who are on border towns down. There have gotten briefings what I wanted to see for myself. So I went down to the Rio Grande valley sector in the Big Ben sector to the five sectors along the Texas southern border. And the crisis is everything on its advertised, president spun on people are just literally pictures on Twitter with groups of people literally from Honduras, Guatemala is literally walking across the border into the United States and people on the left in this country are saying that the president manufactured this somehow, which amazing to me sheriff is that for years and years and Obama said it and Clinton said it and Pelosi said it and Biden said it down the line leftist Schumer said it it was a crisis. There was a major crisis so bad that we had the secure fences active two thousand six of course, when the Democrats took the house and Senate back they d- funded it that's still law of the land. We just can't pay for it. Because the money is. There. What is is? This just politics is this just Trump hatred that they're pretending like there is a crisis. All of a sudden. And there are actually idiots out there that believe them when they say the original crisis. I live in Texas. Of course, there is. Know there's a little of both. I think the Trump hatred is one one of the things that driving this politics is. Well, look, you know, Joe wants something enters into the political realm because bastardize okay to starts to disintegrate and go downhill, and it's very hard to get your message across in a political environment. So you're right. Democrats were all on board with securing the southern border during other presidencies than they signed onto a pass legislation balloon Trump became president. Donald Trump became President Nelson. Everything changed nothing better at the border. Got worse. You got all you have opioids coming across the board of being shipped across the board of MS thirteen gang members. These are things are happening ten fifteen and twenty years ago. Yeah. So it's got worse than like, I said I was down there. I saw for myself now subject to propaganda filtered messages. I saw Joe takes a lot.
"milwaukee county" Discussed on KTOK
"Five zero one seventy eighty got with former on Milwaukee county sheriff David Clarke this week talk about the border and talk about law enforcement to really good insight. Always appreciate you sheriff happy new year. How you doing? Happy new year to you. I'm doing great thanks for asking happy new year to your viewers. Well, listen, we always love having you on it is so important right now to talk about border security. Let me let me though, I delve into your your forty years of police in law enforcement because I keep hearing the stories from especially people like a a Cortes and people like Nancy Pelosi about how somebody died a seven-year-old died in in border patrol or ice custody and some other little boy or somebody died as a sheriff as a law enforcement officer, if I have a seven year old child, and I don't feed the child and the child walks fifteen hundred miles in who knows what kind of weather conditions, and I had this child face possible bad guys from MS thirteen and drug cartels. I mean, I'm in trouble for for malnourished child in child, abandonment and reckless activity, which trouble for all sorts of stuff. Right. Isn't it on the parent? Yeah. You'd be charged with some sort of challenge or child abuse. As a matter of fact. Yeah, I'll those conditions here in the United States, and that's what should happen here. But I doubt that it will look as a parent any parent knows you have responsibility. You know, protection a bit child things to drag him in that situation. It's encouraged by the fact that they're being told not only by people who are running this invasion, but also from the Democrats here in the United States come to the border come in come claim asylum columnist come net. Very serious situation that parents is subject subjecting their kids to now. Of course, the Democrats go out in politicize it and try to blame it on President Trump, you know, seven year old or eight year old guy well in the custody of the border patrol the dead child came in sick to begin with Charles. A matter of fact was offered medical services. One of them was with the father turned down. Right. You're the one. Medical service, better medical service. They would have gotten in your home country or in Mexico so off to the quick reaction of the board of control to just do their job. Stay out of the politics giving people were coming in. Services that they need until this thing get straightened out. It is sheriff David Clarke, it's America's sheriff dot or dot com. Dot com. America's sheriff dot com. Go there get his book cop under fire, everything that he writes editorials, his tweet, you're amazing and follow him everywhere. What's interesting about it is, you know, border patrol agents, I know border patrol agents, and these are great salt of the earth people great law enforcement officers who are also community members who love their country, the vast majority of those speak Spanish this guy, ending which this guy claimed that there was a language barrier. He didn't understand what they were asking him about medical services. I don't believe him. And I gotta be honest with you. I don't know the answer to this. But I'd love to see a DNA test because I know from four border patrol agents that the bad guys will use the same children over and over just to try to get into the country. Wouldn't even know if this person was related to this guy. So we're not doing any investigating where instead we're hearing the left say that we've got a Gestapo force on the border that hates Brown people. It's ridiculous. Isn't it? That's what the Democrats are doing the brave men and women of customs and border patrol the ice officials agents who are out there putting their lives in danger to protect this country to do their job, very professional like I said, they stay out of the politics. I know this works and we've had that situation on most agencies most communities have. Those situations where people who don't speak English to come in. The first thing you, do you have a pool, and then you have a language you don't have an officer. You can call it language pool and get that native tongue in to deal with that situation. So there's no doubt in my mind, because I know a border patrol has a lot of bilingual in Spanish, speaking agents and actually brought him to the scene. But again, that's the politicization of of the situation. I think it's a shame. I guess they think middle America will believe that. It's America sheriff dot com. Go and get his book cop under fire. Follow him on Twitter. It's it's sheriff David Clarke, the president gave a masterful speech though day. This is a speech that you could have written David to be honest with you because it was nothing, but fact from top to bottom, and by the way, I know both sides want border security. We just have to figure out how to do it and make it make sense for the American people. He was factual. He was direct, and I believe that Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer's writers wrote, a speech and rebuttal without ever hearing. What the president said because they sounded disjointed. Did you get? You get that feeling to first of all in terms of what the president. Did. It was a home run. Look when you're going to come into people's living rooms as the president does doing fine time a speech to the nation. You better have something important to say because you're gonna have the American people's attention, and you only get a short period of time. So what can I see conveyed a sense of urgency that this is a national security issue a national security threat. The next thing he did was present a facts and evidence to support the fact that this is a crisis, and you have to tell the American people what your going to do what you propose do about it in third. Most just as important is you gotta ask you American people to do something what he did was call your member of congress and tell them to include border security funding in this continuing resolution, so we can get this government backed up. Most importantly, we can protect the American people the president Kennedy weights. His most solemn duty, America's sheriff dot com. Go to his website at sheriff, David Clarke. So they had a meeting the next day. I'm not gonna even ask you what you thought of the optics of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer standing there. Whoever set up that that shot though, David I gotta be honest with you probably got fired the next day. They looked like American gothic. They looked ridiculous. It didn't make any sense. And again, the response was completely disjointed from what the president said the next day, they meet and closing Chuck Schumer wants to believe the president slammed his hands on the table. And he ranted and raved and he walked around like a baby when in reality with the president said was I will open the government. Let's sign the continuing resolution right now. But in the next thirty days when it expires we will negotiate how to get something done on the border Nancy Pelosi said that's not going to happen. Now, not not that many years ago as you know, Schumer Pelosi, Hillary Clinton Bill Clinton, Brock Obama. They all said exactly what the president's saying today. And now they've completely changed one hundred eighty degrees. Do they wanna deal? Do you think or they only trying to stop Donald Trump because they don't like the guy? You don't wanna deal? There's no doubt about. That and they're playing this bait and switch sort of thing they on public before Cameron. You know, what whoever set their meeting? They shouldn't be fired. You can't help it that it's a bad image of. Schumer Pelosi standing together, the only did was read from their talking points that they're gonna blathering. For the last several weeks on this thing about here's the wind. The president's winning on his he sticks to policy the security safety and sovereignty of the United States. America's is his most solemn duties, he keeps sticking to policy while Lois Schumer and Democrats want to play politics with to save you the American people the American people are seeing right through this. There seemed to the partisan nature of it. And they know I mean, look at the polls Joan, you know, the polls are heavily in favor of some of the American people wanting at southern border seal wanting something done with this broken immigration system. They want an end to illegal immigration and all the problems come along with it. So as long as the president continues to stick the policy, which he does he's going to clobber these individuals in terms of controlling the narrative, the Kamala Harris is and the Elizabeth Warren of the world and ANSI Pelosi Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid before them all want us to believe that it's women and children. And we're just trying to stop them because we're at Centric Centrica racist or something when in reality. And I just posted this tweet from Breitbart in reality. There was just a shootout with are burned dead bodies, very close to our border with Mexico because of the cartel fight. A big drug fight sheriff you law enforcement for four decades. You see something like that happened one neighborhood over you wanna do all you can to stop it from hitting your neighborhood. Don't you? Right. And that's the sense of urgency. The president is trying to communicate to the American people. And I think he's getting through look, you know, people like here is below sea and inviting and others were, you know, China's set themselves up to run for president in twenty twenty dates eighty American citizen as a second class citizen. They're more concerned about the plight of people who should not be in this country when the president laid out the data about the criminality involved is coming across the border MS thirteen gangs, all of the illegal drugs, you opioids heroin the met with Fenton so on and so forth. They don't care about that. Joe? And this is what's. So just despicable about this whole thing is they don't care about that. They don't care about the lives that are impacted by stuff coming through the southern southern border. Once it gets past the southern border every community becomes a border state because that stuff ends up infiltrating into American cities and other locations throughout the United States, and and local law enforcement. I knew I had to deal with with some of it, even in Wisconsin. As farm north is at is in any sheriff cheap. That's honest. Anyway, can tell you that. So, you know, it's high time. But Joe this is why nothing gets done in Washington DC because most presidents don't have the will that Donald Trump has a running a campaign on it. And then all of a sudden, they get elected that looks like, you know, to hire a hill to traverse. So I think I'll just leave that alone. Just president made it clear he ran on was a major plank in his platform to end this illegal immigration violation of our. US sovereignty safety and security. The American people come first he's gonna continue. What you see what you have to do in order to get something done in Washington in congress? They don't want to solve the issue. They run on it. They campaign on it. They raise money off this issue of illegal immigration. And then when push comes to shove, you could status quo. You get nothing. This president not gonna put up with that. It's interesting. He he he didn't get the memo on what it's like to be a politician because he's actually following through on his campaign promises. The sheriff David Clarke, America's sheriff dot com miracle sheriff dot com. Go and get his book as well cop under fire last question. The left always wants to make a negative about any move to this president does he goes to a rock and visits the tropes. It's a photo op, and he's violating some sort of a military code, which of course, he wasn't by signing, hats and shirts. But that was the word that was out there. Now, he goes to the border and the entire narrative from the left. You've heard this today is that he didn't wanna go insiders in the in the White House say he didn't wanna go. Well, guess what? If he doesn't go or if he doesn't want to go. He's the president. He doesn't have to nobody is making this man do. Do this. So is it just a matter of them always trying to shoot holes in something positive? He's doing you really can't make a negative about the commander in chief wanting to go and see what his is what's happening on the border. Can you know why he continues to win on this thing? He knows what he's going to stand. And this is a chess move. This is just not checkers. The optics matter. Go down to the border. You're going to get all every in the United States media camera down there at the border meeting with agents meeting with the people who have to deal with this on a daily basis. It's good optics. Good follow up to the speech. He gave the other night. You're right. He didn't wanna go. He wouldn't. You'll never see. Pelosi Schumer at the board of the probably too afraid to go down there. They know the dangerous so they.

The other parking places that pretty much taken by cars So yeah I parked there I.

Did they slap the signs already up two, days before they needed to slap the sides, up here's my theory I bet tomorrow with some sort of half but it holiday for the city of Milwaukee and they figure that. They didn't want to have to have the people come down and do it on. A half day a worker they weren't going to just put the signs up now. Figuring some people might now so what some people, are inconvenience that don't park with the told not to park Let me move to this story now There was an attempt by a, local website, to report on this story and unfortunately they. Got a lot. Of the information wrong. It was inaccurate here's the correct. Information The Milwaukee. County election commission. And it's more canvassers Certified results for some of the races, in this month's partisan primary, election that we're wrong In the in. The county ride races in Milwaukee county the numbers that were certified by the Milwaukee county elections board were in fact inaccurate The most important race involved was the election for Milwaukee county sheriff The numbers that were certified by the board. Of canvassers and the Milwaukee county election commission led by Julieta Henry we're so far off that they showed more. Than, one hundred thousand more votes cast for share up then governor well that should have. Been a tip off that there was obviously a terrible mistake Baid What happened was somehow all the boats were added up twice it didn't change the result earn Lucas was still. The wetter but they essentially counted every vote twice and the results that were certified as the official boats were. Twice, as many votes for each of the candidates on the ballot Lucas Schmidt everybody else And nobody caught it because the Milwaukee county election commission staff didn't even go back and double check the numbers how, did the. Mistake occur Well I've investigated this and I did contact. Both spoke to Julieta Henry the head of the election commission and I spoke to read Magni who's the. Spokesperson for the Wisconsin election commission the Milwaukee county election, commission blames the error at a glitch in the new program created by the, state the state election commission Henry said. They entered their numbers and somehow the numbers came back and got double added under the state system and they went and certified those numbers they. Got back from the state Wrongly she said, that the individual ward by ward numbers were correct but the cumulative numbers turned out to be all screwed up at. Way higher than they should Abed She said once the mistake was brought to their attention and the mistake was Brian to their attention by a citizen? Who found the inaccurate results on the county website nobody from the county election commission caught at themselves that they contacted. The, state and ask for what should we do. And we're told that they should have the board of canvassers sidewalk. And sign it and, sign onto the, new numbers now I don't know, if that's legal or not something certified. By the board of? Canvas seems to be its official on the other? Hand if the mistake if it's clearly a wrong, number you. Have to do the right woods why did this happen and is there a. Glitch in the state system is the state election commission still all followed up read Magni the spokesperson for the election commission says they do indeed. Have a new system and apparently there. Was a mistake that was made him a walkie county had made several, other counties as well where some numbers were double counted he, doesn't mean votes were double counted it just means that when they reported the votes into the canned Insisted. That they came back with inaccurate numbers. Magni says they believe that they have caught all of the mistakes He said, they will continue to work on the. System prior to the November election so that the system works well that so we're not for an individual citizen anybody who would have checked Milwaukee county's election website would have seen numbers for the sheriff's election that we're. Way out of whack and Rog because the board of canvassers and the staff there that. Supposed to, double check everything was a little bit too frivolous and Double check everything after a. Glitch on the, state system didn't change. Any, result it just changed but the margin, was they have now changed, those inaccurate numbers. And posted the correct ones I have more information on that story on Belen dot com as they said there was a website report well as Jerry baiters saying. That put up some information that turned out not to be fully accurate Eddie he never tried to get to the bottom of anything that's what's happened sadly to media trackers now since it's fallen into his incompetent hands.

"In southeastern and. Eastern Wisconsin yesterday Let's. Spend at least a moment discussing sheriff's elections first of all it is kind. Of weird that we elect sheriffs we don't elect police useful elect sheriffs I, believe and I've said this for a number of. Years we should not be electing sheriffs In, the fall they should be elected in the spring when you get to run without, political party there's not, that much about the position of. Sheriff that is either Republican or democrat unlike certain other positions what it does is it disenfranchises the reason it's, never going. To change is the majority party in all of, these counties love it this way But if you're a democrat and you live in Waukesha county you're screwed If you're a democrat, you load ozaukee county or take what happened yesterday wash. It a Kati a very hotly. Contested race for sheriff in Washington county they've got a new sheriff, doubt it's going to be shoulders he would put if you're a. Democrat you didn't get, to vote for sheriff because it's a Republican, primary if you're a democrat. Who voted that election. For governor of governor, you couldn't vote for sheriff likewise in Milwaukee county if you are Republican I couldn't vote as an example for sheriff in Milwaukee county because I, chose to vote in the Republican primary. In, the United States Senate race you gotta pick and choose your, battles and I. Actually would've voted for sheriff Schmitt had I had the opportunity to, do so CNN disenfranchising the people that are in the minority party. In a number of, these counties in some communities it doesn't much, matter receding Kenosha county the. Sheriff's go back and. Forth both have Republicans, sheriffs right Noche mailing and Racine in and in Kenosha but it has been it has gone back and forth but in the majority of our, counties they're either predominantly Republican or predominantly democrat I mean outta game county the Appleton. Area they've had a Republican sheriff there might have been a couple of. Times there is a. Democrat in there by and large. It's a Republican sheriff because it's a, Republican county same thing with Fonda Cody It's. Just a bad way of A local. Office shouldn't be elected via. Party like this are statewide offices we understand why when you have an ideology that's so different, Republican versus democrat and so out I don't think say the same thing, with regard to the district attorney's That our elected. They, should be moved to the spring you'd. Have to change the constitution so that they. Could run outside a political. Party and have everybody in these communities be able to vote in these elections it does have, an impact on the results anyway sheriff spent probably never had a chance He was going to. Be tied to David Clarke because he served as the number two for Clark forever even though he tried to differentiate himself in at a different style from. Clark and people can argue whether it's better. Or, worse I'm merely saying it is different Some of the people that despised Clark liked. Schmidt like county executive Chris Abeille And so on others who liked the fact that Clark was an in your face. Guy, who stood up and spoke. Aggressively from our conservative sect about, social issues clearly we're getting that from Schmidt perhaps they would have preferred Clark but this is a democratic only primary and the Democrats heat at the democratic activists hated. David Clarke and it stuck in their craw that, he kept winning, these primaries Sheriff Clarke though did have. A little bit of an advantage in a couple of elections there wasn't much on the Republican ballot and Republican voters in Milwaukee county could vote in that race for sheriff without missing out Santa governor's primary so I'm because there really wasn't that much of anything else contested for them on the ballot to have to go with this time around while the, Republicans are a minority of Milwaukee county I. Think it's fair to say almost all of them would. Have voted for Schmidt had they had the opportunity given the fact that he's a law and order. Guide was qualified for, the position and all the reasons why Lucas is just bizarre that. We have a sheriff is not allowed. To rest anybody because he's not certified as a law enforcement officer but he is up against the democratic establishment didn't want anything having anything to. Do, with David Clarke and there. Was a lot of outside body, that was spent on behalf of getting ernie'll Lucas elected so without a doubt Schmidt would have been the most qualified guy that was in there here's the other things They would just look at it and lay in for some conservative to say something positive About Schmidt. So they could play, outlook Schmitz night Schmitz at other David Clarke he's another one of. These right wingers he's ANC Schmidt try. To sort of run a sort of both a law and order. Guy and sort of as a progressive. Ed It's a. Screwed up situation and. In the same way. That the Republicans in Milwaukee Coty were disenfranchised they didn't have an, opportunity to participate, I'll be fair here it's the same thing if you're. A democrat who lives in. Dodge county sheriff race yesterday by, the way a sheriff Smith did win that primary and that's good he's, a very good sheriff Washington county Showtime won. The primary which means he's going to be, the next sheriff in kailua met county which is on the. Eastern shore of lake. When a Bego, the Walker recall, their dead win the sheriff's race stairs bike a hundred and sixty votes but he did wed in that case somebody who's clear they got a background is a. Liberal was, able to win even in a Republican primary because he did have law enforcement, credentials had been in the sheriff's department For some time earn Lucas the new sheriff we're going to have to see I all he doesn't take over until January Schmidt will serve out the term We have no idea what, kind of, a sheriff for. An l. Lucas is going to. Be because he'd he hasn't even been a cop for a decade he was An, officer of rank in the Milwaukee police department he was a. Higher, up in the Milwaukee police. Department a number of years ago but. When bud Sealy was Commissioner baseball he made up the head of security. For major league baseball essentially it was. Doing bodyguard stuff he gave up his law enforcement certification he hasn't had, to deal with any of the issues that the sheriff he hasn't had to deal with things the great debate, with regard to the sheriff's department in Milwaukee county is are they just going to be a bunch of guys who set out? On the freeway with the radar guns or are they going to be proactive and be involved? In drug enforcement and try to take on a? Role and violent crime how aggressive are you going to be at the lake front in the parks and so on or are you going to be a. Passive department Nobody knows what kind of a sheriff now look this is going to? Be because he hadn't even better cop in the case of Schmidt I think he tried to? Be a little bit similar in terms of priority As Clark, but, avoid all of the headlines as. To what Lucas is going to be I'll give the by the guy the benefit of the doubt, I hope he's pretty good right now the early reports on the new Milwaukee police chief Afonso morale is just spectacular he's doing a great job over there and you hope that Lucas will be a decent enough sheriff but you're, talking about a, guy who the voters in Milwaukee county choose chose to make their sheriff had, a time in which crime is such a major, issue, who's undeniably at the moment unqualified for the job now years ago as I say he. Was a cop and maybe he can get himself back up to speed but The guy who hasn't been doing any type of law enforcement work at all for a long long time I mean director, of security for, a sports league has literally nothing to do with writing a local law enforcement, agency He will have something of a transition but it's not like he's going to be in their over, the next.
