Milwaukee Opportunity Schools Partnership Program (OSPP) Commissioner Demond Means announced his resignation on Wednesday, just hours after WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes wondered out loud on the air, “Why doesn’t he just quit?” (No, really – at 28:30.)

Who would you trust with public safety decisions in Milwaukee County? — Milwaukee Sheriff (@MCSOSheriff) October 22, 2013 Good to see the sheriff using his official Twitter account to look like a complete jerk. What’s next? A selfie of the sheriff’s penis? Print this entry
