Kratz's lawyer says allegations "driven by financial opportunity"

MADISON (WKOW/AP) -- The attorney for Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz says women who've come forward since the first allegations against him are "driven by financial opportunity."

Robert Craanen, who represents Kratz, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he wouldn't be surprised if more women go on national television to level similar accusations against his client.

Craanen says Kratz feels bad about sending harassing text messages to a domestic abuse victim while prosecuting her ex-boyfriend.

But he says two other women who have since come forward making similar complaints have done so to take advantage of "financial opportunities." He has denied one of the woman's claims and is investigating the other's.

According to the Journal Sentinel, a fourth person has come forward with harassment allegations against Kratz.
