A state politician already facing a damaged personal reputation after being accused of sexual harassment is now facing sexual assault charges stemming from an April 8, 2011, incident in Muskego.

State Rep. Bill Kramer, R-Waukesha, was charged on Friday in Waukesha County Circuit Court with two counts of second-degree sexual assault with the use of force. 

The 49-year-old Republican has already announced that he will not seek re-election. He went into treatment earlier this year after he was accused of sexually harassing two people while on fundraising trip in Washington, D.C.

The woman involved in the April 2011 incident came forward to the Muskego Police Department after learning about the allegations in Washington, D.C., according to WISN 12 News. The woman told authorities she had been assaulted by Kramer in a parking lot after the GOP's Pints 'N Politics event in Muskego, WISN 12 News is reporting.

Kramer is due in court for an initial appearance at 8:15 a.m. April 14, court records show.
