Two former Obama Administration officials who served in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) criticized David Clarke, the Milwaukee County, Wis. sheriff who on Wednesday said he accepted a role in the government agency.
…Philip McNamara and Juliette Kayyem each served as the assistant secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at DHS during the Obama administration and railed against their apparent successor on Twitter.
“I’m being replaced @DHSgov by #SheriffClarke. My job was to work with state and local officials. Clarke says he wants to strangle #Democrats,” McNamara said after news broke that Clarke said he accepted the position.
“For those of you I’m just meeting, Clarke is taking my old position under Obama. I am floored. And feel for my career staff,” Kayyem tweeted
