MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The president of the state Senate says state Rep. Bill Kramer should be forced out of the Assembly if the Waukesha Republican is found guilty of pending sexual assault charges.
Republican Senate President Mike Ellis said Saturday that Kramer's conduct is a black eye to Republicans in both chambers. He says Kramer should resign, and if convicted should be kicked out of the Assembly.
Kramer was charged Friday with sexually assaulting a political aide three years.
Republicans stripped him of his position as majority leader earlier this month following separate allegations of sexual harassment at a February fundraiser. Kramer isn't seeking re-election in November.
Kramer's attorney, Jim Gatzke, says the legal process should be allowed to run its course. He says there's no need to rush to judgment.
