MADISON (WKOW) -- District attorneys from around the state are discussing what penalty if any will be held against Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz.

Kratz is accused of sending inappropriate text messages to a domestic abuse victim.

Democratic Rep. Fred Kessler of Milwaukee, a former judge, is calling on Gov. Doyle to remove him, saying Doyle should appoint an investigator to look into Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz's behavior.

If the allegations of sexually harassing text messages to the woman are true, Kessler says Kratz should be removed from office.

Kratz, a Republican, said Wednesday he intends to run for re-election in 2012.

District attorneys discussed the issue at the State Bar Center on Madison's east side Friday.
