Milwaukee Co. Sheriff defends promotion of officer suspected of misconduct

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke defends his recent promotion of an officer who was suspected of committing misconduct a year and a half ago.

Nancy Evans became the head of security at Mitchell International Airport. That was after prosecutors decided last year that Evans did not benefit personally, when she awarded thousands of dollars in no-bid flooring contracts to a company run by her extra-marital boyfriend.

Reports said the work was sub-standard and could have been done better and faster by Milwaukee County employees.

The deputies' union filed suit recently, alleging that Clarke illegally promoted Evans while repeatedly passing over a white male candidate. Clarke calls the lawsuit sexist and frivolous.
