There's a new website promoting Sheriff Clarke for Senate.

Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife started a Sheriff Clarke for Senate website

With his growing national profile, it's almost a guarantee that Sheriff David Clarke – last seen on Facebook threatening, via meme, to kill a man who apparently shook his head at him on an airplane – will run for higher office at some point. And now a step in that direction has been found on Reddit: a "Sheriff Clarke for Senate" website, founded by some surprising names.

You know what, not really that surprising. 

According to a WISN 12 report, the official "Sheriff Clarke for Senate" draft campaign was created last Tuesday, started by a nine-person advisory board, including Trump campaign fundraisers and surrogates Jack and Kay Daly, actor Nick Searcy ("Justified," that Nicholas Sparks movie with Miley Cyrus) and former Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory.

Oh, and Dog the Bounty Hunter (real name: Duane Chapman) and his wife, Beth Chapman. 

According to the site's "Who We Are" section, the group's goal is "a commitment to the conservative movement, and to putting in place those things necessary to cause Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr. to file for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate, and to defeat liberal extremist Tammy Baldwin in November of 2018." In case that's not convincing enough, the site also collected glowing Clarke praise from the likes of Ann Coulter and Twitter bully/exile Milo Yiannopoulos.

The site is not authorized by Clarke, but a political advisor told WISN 12 that the sheriff – in between threatening head-shakers and boasting about taunting protesters – has seen the site and is "humbled by the support."

The upcoming Democratic primary for sheriff will take place in August 2018.

The Iron Horse Hotel hosts "The Bachelor" viewing party tonight

For those who hoped having a Milwaukee-born leading man on "The Bachelor" – plus two contestants with Sconnie connections – would mean lots of Cream City shots and shoutouts this season, the first three episodes have mostly been a bust. However, that's expected to change in tonight's episode, which will bring bachelor Nick Viall back home to visit family and hit the hometown hotspots – and one of the venues featured is having a party to celebrate. 

When they filmed this season, The Iron Horse Hotel was selected for a special date night locale (with who? I guess we'll find out tonight ... or just by looking on the show's official Twitter). So, in honor of its on-screen appearance, the Walker's Point hotel will host a "Little Black Dress" viewing party for tonight's episode.

The party starts at 6:30 p.m., with food and drink specials available – as well as handing out roses of its very own. The viewing will then begin at 7 p.m. And in case the name of the party wasn't a big enough clue, suggested attire is a little black dress. 

So drop by, watch the latest episode, eye-roll and mutter profanities at Corinne, and see the show's stars hit some popular Milwaukee sights – and then hope Milwaukee gave itself a good scrub down afterward.

76ers' Joel Embiid did not enjoy Milwaukee, called it "sh*thole" on Instagram

You would think Philadelphia center Joel Embiid would have nothing but pleasant things to say about his time spent Monday in Milwaukee. After all, his improving but still bottom-feeding 76ers team snatched a surprise 113-104 victory from the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday afternoon at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

But, as many noticed, according to the impressive NBA rookie's Instagram, he was not all that pleased!

Whoa now, Joel. That seems a bit harsh – especially coming from a team with twice as many losses as wins currently this season. He, or somebody, must've agreed, because the location tag has been removed from the original post. 

We're HOT.. Let's keep it rolling. Great win today!!!! #TheProcess

We'll give him the benefit of the doubt and say that he was talking about the BMO Harris Bradley Center and not the entire city of Milwaukee – which, in that case, we're working on it, Joel. We look forward to playing you again – and hopefully beating you – in the forthcoming shiny, cozy, brand new, very not-sh*tty arena that definitely won't look like a popular local taco restaurant chain.

We're also looking forward to the playoffs and maybe even seeing you there – in half a decade when #TheProcess finally gets around to working.
