Assembly leader may resign due to sexual harassment accusations
by Lila Carrera


Republican Majority Leader Bill Kramer has reportedly been accused of sexual harassment.
Sources confirm to the Associated Press that Kramer is now being asked to resign.

We went to Kramer's home in Waukesha to try and get his side of the story and we were told he has no comment at this time. 

The AP reports Kramer is being accused of sexual harassment  that took place after a GOP fundraiser earlier this week in Washington, D.C. The AP reports he sexually harassed more than one woman after the fundraiser.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos released the following statement to CBS 58 News. 

 

"Recently I was made aware of serious allegations regarding inappropriate behavior by Rep. Kramer. Since I learned of those allegations I have been consulting with legal counsel and other legislators to understand what options are available.

“The alleged behavior is reprehensible and won’t be tolerated.

“I expect that members of the Wisconsin State Legislature should always hold themselves to the highest standards and that’s why this matter will be dealt with swiftly.”
