Clarke is a fucking nut job loony.
And I say that with apologies to a lot of fucking nut job loonies out there.
Yes the position is elected, and apparently running as a black democrate who spews piles of right wing bulshit is enough to get elected to this town.
To be fair he was only kind of crazy during the last election. He's gone flat out loopy since his buddy Walker left town, so hopfully he'll be out soon.
Of course Walker's replacement, Abele isn't much better, and the two have a hate on for each other that would embarass most pro-wrestlers. Always nice to have egomaniacs playing king of the mountain. Almost enough to make me miss the good old days of Walker and Holloway butting heads over everything.
