Ousted Assembly leader won't run again

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Ousted Republican Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer will not seek re-election.
   Kramer filed paperwork with the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board on Monday that he would not be a candidate in the fall. The document was signed March 14.
   Kramer was voted out of his position as majority leader earlier this month after he was accused of sexually harassing two women while in Washington, D.C., for a fundraiser. One of the women is a lobbyist and the other is a legislative staff member.
   Kramer was first elected in 2006. He was chosen as majority leader, the second most powerful position in the Assembly, in October.
   A message left with Kramer's chief of staff seeking comment was not immediately returned.
