Republicans to discuss removal of the former Assembly Majority LeaderSubmitted: 04/01/2014
Story By Associated Press

MADISON - Republican leaders will talk this week about removing embattled former Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer from office.

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.

Kramer said he won't run for re-election in November.

On Saturday Republican leaders called on him to resign.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos 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.
