Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer may resign from his leadership post as soon as Saturday after being accused of sexually harassing at least two women while in Washington, D.C., for a GOP fundraiser.
Sources said the allegations against the 49-year-old Republican lawmaker involve a 33-year-old female lobbyist and at least one other woman. The Journal Sentinel has decided not to name the women.
Kramer, 49, could not be reached for comment and was not at his Waukesha home Friday night.
Assembly Speaker Robin Vos issued a statement calling the allegations “reprehensible. ” He said the issue would be resolved quickly.
“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.”
