MADISON, Wis. - Republican leaders in the state Assembly plan to discuss this week whether to remove embattled former Majority Leader Bill Kramer from office.
Waukesha County prosecutors charged Kramer on Friday with sexually assaulting a political aide in 2011. The charges come on the heels of separate allegations he sexually harassed a lobbyist and a legislative staffer in Washington D.C. in February.
Assembly Republicans stripped Kramer of his leadership post after the Washington allegations surfaced and Kramer said he won't run for re-election in November. On Saturday Republican leaders called on him to resign outright.
A spokeswoman for Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says he plans to meet with other Republicans on Thursday to talk about Kramer.
It would take a two-thirds vote of the Assembly to expel Kramer from office.
