You might have missed the anniversay but WFAE's Julie Rose and Lisa Miller didn't, and they are on point regarding RoMo's pledge to resolve his phoney degree issue.
Once the phoney degree was exposed heads started to roll, and in the wake of the scandal, two VCU deans resigned.
A legislative investigation said it didn't find evidence of any wrongdoing by Monroe, but that he clearly shouldn't have been awarded the degree.
"But Monroe still lists the degree in his biography on the city's web site and Monroe has repeatedly refused to answer any questions about whether he's decided what to do about the degree. He has abruptly ended several interviews with WFAE as soon as the issue was raised. WFAE's Julie Rose tried to ask him about it two weeks ago.
"Chief, Chief, do you have any status on the….." began Rose.
We finally got this vaguely-worded statement from Monroe.
"What I stated to the community over a year ago was my desire to further my education. This goal will be met on a timetable that is best for my family and career. To date I have and continue to take additional classes," Monroe said.
WFAE requested more information on the classes Monroe refers to in his statement. Captain Brian Cunningham, the head of CMPD's communications office, did not respond to our request."
