Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his eyes set on a new target: pro-self defense Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County. According to the Washington Times, Bloomberg has dumped $150,000 for advertising into the race between Clarke and Milwaukee Police Lt. Chris Moews, who are running against each other in a Democratic primary.
Clarke and Moews have traded barbs in the past regarding the best way to handle crime in Milwaukee and surrounding areas. Clarke also has a long standing feud over firearm self-defense with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, who has endorsed Moews.
...With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is
no longer your best option. You could beg for mercy from a violent
criminal, hide under the bed or you can fight back. But are you
prepared? 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?" Clarke stated in one radio ad from early 2013.
