Sheriff Clarke Says County Executive Chris Abele Has 'Penis Envy'
Sparks have been flying for well over a year between Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and County Executive Chris Abele. But now, Abele has criticized Clarke's stance on guns and that has Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke calling Abele names.
An all-out war has been brewing between Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele over the budget and Clarke's statements about guns.
Waged via Facebook, emails, and in the media, the battle between the two is anything but quiet. Clarke’s latest barb accused Abele of having “penis envy,” according to a blog on the Journal Sentinel. In the article, Daniel Bice chronicles Clarke’s frustrations.
Abele, on the other hand, acts like the smartest guy in the room. That must be quite a heavy burden to walk through life with. The many people in his cabinet that he has hired, only to turn around and soon fire, necessitates that he never leave the Courthouse to educate and develop himself. He’s smarter than everyone else. Apparently the county executive doesn’t trust his staff like Clarke trusts his.
Abele's true colors are revealed in this e-mail. When asked, he continually looks into the camera of the media and tells them that by cutting my budget, laying off deputies and usurping the constitutional authority of the sheriff, that his actions are not personal. Oh really?
While Clarke’s call for Milwaukee County citizens to arm themselves has struck a nerve with liberals and even some in law enforcement, a number pro-gun supporters have backed Clarke on Facebook.
Still, Abele has been mute on Clarke's actions and he wants "civility from all sides," Bice wrote.
Both men were elected. What do you think of how they are acting?
