A Republican assemblywoman from West Bend has taken over as the Majority Leader of the State Assembly after Rep. Bill Kramer, R-Waukesha, was removed from the position following allegations of sexual harassment.
Kramer checked into a treatment facility, according to a statement from his staff.
“The alleged behavior is reprehensible and won’t be tolerated,” Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, a Republican, said in a prepared statement. “I expect that members of the Wisconsin State Legislature should always hold themselves to the highest standards and that’s why this matter will be dealt with swiftly.”
