Sheriff David Clarke one-on-one with Charles Benson

By The WTMJ News Team. CREATED Feb 19, 2012

MILWAUKEE - TODAY'S TMJ4's Charles Benson in an exclusive one-on-one with Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.

Clarke appeared live on Sunday's "Live at 10" newscast to talk about the heat he's taken for not providing Milwaukee County sheriff's deputies as security when President Barack Obama was in Milwaukee at Master Lock last Wednesday.

Several city officials, including Milwaukee Common Council President Willie Hines and County Supervisor Eyon Biddle have criticized Clarke's handling of the situation.

Biddle went as far to call Clarke a "disgrace" and an "embarassment."

Clarke has said he couldn't provide security because his $446,000 for dignitary protection were cut out of Milwaukee County's latest budget.
