Wisconsin Republican Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer Likely To Resign Leadership Post Over Sexual Harassment Incidents

Where I come from folks like Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer are slimeballs.  I am sure there was a pro-family position that Kramer took at election time, but that fell into the ditch in Washington, D.C..   Though Kramer is single, and apparently for good reason, does not give license for such behavior.

Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer may resign from his leadership post as soon as Saturday after being accused of sexually harassing at least two women while in Washington, D.C., for a GOP fundraiser.

Sources said the allegations against the 49-year-old Republican lawmaker involve a 33-year-old female lobbyist and at least one other woman. The Journal Sentinel has decided not to name the women.

Kramer, 49, could not be reached for comment and was not at his Waukesha home Friday night. His chief of staff, Cameron Sholty, said the lawmaker would be meeting with staff Saturday and would be talking with fellow Republican lawmakers over the next 48 hours. He declined to comment further.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos issued a statement calling the alleged conduct “reprehensible.” He said the issue would be resolved quickly.

“Recently I was made aware of serious allegations regarding inappropriate behavior by Rep. Kramer. Since I learned of those allegations I have been consulting with legal counsel and other legislators to understand what options are available.

“The alleged behavior is reprehensible and won’t be tolerated.”

Top Republicans from the Senate and Assembly were in Washington on Wednesday for their annual fundraiser at the offices of the lobbying and public relations firm BRG Group.

Donors could give up to $5,000 to host the event supporting Republicans in the state’s two legislative houses.

    The REAL prostitutes are the Repugnant legislative leaders who slunk to D.C. to get their marching orders for $5,000 from their Johns.
