the heck! They elected Jesse Ventura governor. Having a dog
for a mayor could be a step up.
Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Sheriff David A.
Clarke, Jr. handily beat his opponent in the Democratic primary which means
he’s pretty much assured of re-election since he has no Republican candidate.
What’s interesting about the race is that former New York City Mayor Michael
Bloomberg threw $150,000 into the campaign at the last minute to try to defeat
him. The reason, Mayor Clarke
is pro-gun. His public service ad in 2013 got national headlines. “I’m Sheriff David
Clarke and I want to talk to you about something personal: Your safety. It’s no
longer a spectator sport. I need you in the game. But are you ready? With
officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer
your best option. … Consider taking a certified safety course in handling of
firearms, so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to
protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”
If you’d like to have a piece of Bill
Ackman’s hedge fund, you may have
a chance later this year. He has indicated that he intends to take it
public. His fund is up 32.1% year-to-date and 16.1% in the 2nd
quarter net of fees.
