Wis. GOP May Remove Kramer After Groping Allegations

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Assembly Republicans plan to vote on removing Rep. Bill Kramer as majority leader amid allegations that he groped a woman after a Washington fundraiser last week and verbally abused another on the flight home.

Kramer has checked himself into an unspecified treatment facility and is not expected to be at the meeting. He has not commented on the allegations.

Republican leaders called the meeting to remove Kramer as majority leader, the second most powerful position in the Assembly. It wasn’t known whether another lawmaker would be elected to take his spot or if it would be left vacant.

Kramer, of Waukesha, was elected to the Assembly in 2006 and was chosen as majority leader in September to replace Scott Suder.
