Assembly GOP to meet Tuesday on possible removal of Kramer as leader

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin Assembly Republicans are planning to meet Tuesday to consider removing Bill Kramer as the majority leader of the lower house.

Kramer's office confirmed to several media outlets during the weekend that the Waukesha lawmaker checked into a treatment facility. His staffers would not say why.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel first reported on Saturday that Kramer was accused of sexually harassing two women last week at a fundraiser in Washington for state Assembly and Senate Republicans. A legislative staffer and a lobbyist were said to be the women making the allegations.

Sunday, the paper said Kramer was scheduled to meet with GOP Assembly Speaker Robin Vos about his possible future in the leadership position -- but that meeting never took place.

Vos issued a statement indicating that Assembly leaders planned to strip Kramer of the leadership post he assumed just last fall after Scott Suder resigned.

Considering that there's only a month left in the current session, the Journal Sentinel says the majority leader's post may stay vacant for now. The 49-year-old Kramer has been in the Assembly for just over seven years.
