David Clarke, the sheriff of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, appeared in New York City Monday night, but not at the Metropolitan Republican Club, where Clarke, widely rumored to be under consideration for Homeland Security secretary, has been banned from speaking.
“Clarke is one of the few Democrats in name only,” says current Met Club member and former board member Allan Stevo. “He’s a law-and-order-style conservative who runs as a Democrat to maintain his office, while badmouthing the Democratic Party every chance he gets.”
Sheriff Clarke has long identified Black Lives Matter as a “hate group,” saying, “It’s time to stand up” to them.
Clarke was invited to the prestigious, off-the-record Met Club Monday Meeting this week, according to a statement from organizers, “to talk about law enforcement, crime, and how the biased media covers the true threats to our safety and security.”
Conservative Met Club members attempted to invite Clarke to speak in fall 2016 before Democratic infiltrators shut Clarke down.
Metropolitan Club members, speaking exclusively with GotNews, say Clarke would have been a perfect speaker for the Club in the run-up to the 2016 election, had he not been, in the words of one leftist infiltrator, “not the right kind of speaker.”
“You don’t have to be around the Met Club long to see how much of the club’s leadership is liberal,” says Stevo. “Since so many club members are conservatives, it could really be a phenomenal place if we started to provide a conservative oasis in the Democratic desert of New York. Conservatives in our city would love that kind of venue.”
GotNews has exposed a January purge of pro-Trump Metropolitan Republican Club board members, among them Georgia Palmieri.
Speaking off-the-record, a long-time club member says, “Palmieri had met some of Clarke’s people, and ended up running into Clarke himself. He was very eager to speak at our club. [Former Club President Peter] Hein, [current Club President Deb] Coughlin, and others thought it would not be appropriate for such a controversial speaker to appear at the club though. It was all lined up. All we had to do was pull that trigger. Sheriff Clarke speaking would have brought us positive media attention and plenty of new memberships, but it would not have been the kind of membership they wanted. They already saw that the new, pro-Trump members were the kind of people they couldn’t predict and who they wouldn’t be able to guarantee the support of for all their usual baloney. The old blood didn’t like the new blood and they really didn’t want any more newcomers. They told Palmieri that Clarke was not the right kind of speaker for the club. They actually called him that ‘not the right kind of speaker’.”
In a prepared statement, Club President Deb Coughlin flatly called her critics “disgruntled” and “dissonant.”
Manhattan County Republican Party Chairwoman Adele Malpass, an influential Met Club member, last year told the New York Observer that 2016 was “the year of the woman.” Malpass advocated for non-Republican, left wing causes, saying, “I hope that people uncomfortable voting on the Republican line, this being the year of the woman, hopefully they will vote on the Women’s Equality Line.”
An anonymous Met Club member says Malpass walked around for weeks brandishing a copy of the Observer with her extremist year-of-the-woman line.
The New York Observer is owned by Trump senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Weeks after the January Trump purge, the Met Club invited for an open speech long-time leftist operative Doug Schoen, a well-known con man for the Clintons. The club invited Schoen not only to speak but to sign books.
“Anyone trying to host conservative speakers these last two years had to fight like Kilkenny cats. It was truly shameful to watch,” said an anonymous club member after the Doug Schoen event.
Of the 17 speakers hosted at the Met Club between Trump announcing his candidacy and the 2016 Republican National Convention, only two speakers were Trump supporters. The two, Republican consultant Roger Stone and former gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, were only allowed to appear at the Club after Trump had clinched the nomination. Sources connected to the Met Club say this behavior has led to a 20 percent membership drop.
Ousted board member Sandra Chase has stated about the Trump Purge, “This is a ‘hate Donald Trump’ movement.”
Says former board member Stevo, “You’re more likely to catch [Met Club leadership] in pink hats than in Lincoln Pins.”
