Nine attorneys apply to replace Ken Kratz


MADISON (WKOW) -- Gov. Jim Doyle could soon fill the Calumet County District Attorney position vacated in October by Ken Kratz.

Nine attorneys have reportedly filed to fill the spot. Doyle spokesman, Adam Collins says a replacement could be named soon, but would not put a date on the announcement.

Kratz resigned after a text-messaging controversy that became public in September. The former D.A. admitted to sending sexually charged text messages to a crime victim. Other women later came forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior.

Kratz had been in office since 1992.
