On August 9, WisconsinEye Senior Producer Steve Walters and WisPolitics.com Editor JR Ross discussed recent reports that Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes did not complete his degree at Alabama A&M University due to a paper work issue. This is in addition to reports of his unpaid parking tickets and being late with his property tax payment. "There's a collection of instances in where Barnes has seem to not taken care of his own business, and it's given fodder for Republicans to criticize him," JR said. However, JR highlighted Lt. Gov. Barnes' as a "rising star" with his influence on the Democratic base. "He is viewed by some as the future of the Democratic Party in Wisconsin."
