Sheriff Clarke is coming under fire – from some Republicans after being caught with a side piece. And not just any old side piece. The sheriff is cheating on his WHITE wife . . . With a MUSLIM lady.
You already know the Republicans are ready to GO TO WAR with him now.
Clarke filed for divorce from his wife two weeks ago, on the day before this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference. Since last year, he has been seen regularly with Hedieh Mirahmadi, a Muslim woman who has a job conducting sensitivity training with law enforcement agencies. According to her LinkedIn page, Mirahmadi was a consultant to the FBI from 2015 until June 2017.
Mirahmadi characterizes her relationship as standard for a business manager to someone of Clarke’s stature. But when asked to confirm or deny whether they were having an affair, Mirahmadi told Cockburn, ‘well, he’s filing for a divorce, so I don’t think it’s technically an affair. I don’t really want to comment on the nature of our relationship”.
Those are your words, not mine,’ she added when Cockburn asked whether their relationship was strictly professional.
Clarke has been contacted for comment but has yet to respond.
The controversial sheriff is scheduled to speak at New Mexico’s Gang Task Force Conference in April. The conference will also offer classes to law enforcement from across New Mexico, including how to deal with Mexican drug cartels, white supremacists and social media use by gangs.
It will be interesting to hear how the sheriff thinks law enforcement should be dealing with white supremacists considering Trump’s lax stance on the hate group.
But his cheating with a Muslim woman will no doubt see him at the barrels end of thousands of hate tweet from Trump’s anti-Islam supporters! Is Clarke thinking about converting?
