MADISON (AP) -- The president of the state Senate says state Representative Bill Kramer should be forced out of the Assembly if the Waukesha Republican is found guilty of pending sexual assault.
Republican Senate President Mike Ellis said Saturday that Kramer's conduct is a black eye to Republicans in both chambers. Ellis 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 ago. 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. Gatzke says there's no need to rush judgment.
