Kickstarter suspends Jerry Kramer film after raising $50K

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The crowd-funding site Kickstarter says the Milwaukee filmmaker behind the documentary failed to fulfill promised rewards for a past project.

It's against Kickstarter's rules to start a new campaign before completing the last one.

Anyone who donated to the Kramer project will be refunded.

CBS 58 has reached out to the filmmaker for comment.
