Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is a controversial figure who has been dogged by recent scandals in his jails. Scandals involving the deaths of inmates, with one of those deaths being a newborn.

He is also going to be assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. At least according to him. The Trump administration has yet to confirm his position.

CNN has now uncovered that he plagiarized sections of his 2013 master’s thesis on US security. He earned his master’s degree in security studies at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. His thesis, “Making U.S. security and privacy rights compatible, failed to attribute his sources properly a minimum of 47 times.

Throughout the paper, he lifts language from sources and while he credits them in the footnotes, he does not indicate with quotes that he is actually writing the words verbatim.

The vocal Trump surrogate announced on Thursday that he got the appointment to the DHS “office of partnership and programs.” There he will serve as a liaison with law enforcement at several different levels across the United States.

Clarke has made several questionable comments in the past. For example, he called Black Lives Matter a hate group and called it “Black Lies Matter.” This on top of criticism of his management of a Milwaukee County Jail where, according to prosecutors, an inmate died of dehydration after being deprived of water for a week.
