Lt. Gov. Barnes owes taxes

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee treasurer’s office records show Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes is delinquent on property taxes.

Deputy City Treasurer Jim Klajbor said Friday that Barnes, a Democrat, has failed to pay $2,225.43 in property taxes, interest and penalties for his condominium.

Barnes told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, which first reported the delinquency, that he’s paying the delinquent taxes in an installment plan.

But Klajbor said Barnes failed to make the first payment by Jan. 31 and hasn’t made any subsequent payments.
