Assembly Majority Leader Rep. Bill Kramer, R-Waukesha, checked into rehab Saturday after allegations of sexual harassment surfaced after a trip to Washington, D.C.

Two women – one a lobbyist – accused Kramer of sexually harassing them, according to a story in The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

After Kramer was not available for comment either Friday or early Saturday, his Chief of Staff, Cameron Sholty, told the newspaper that Kramer would meet with staff and Republicans Saturday. But, by Saturday evening Kramer had checked into rehab.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, R-Burlington, issued a statement from Assembly Republican Leadership condemning his alleged actions and saying they will ask the Assembly Republican Caucus to remove Kramer as Majority Leader.

Assuming Assembly Republicans vote Tuesday to remove Kramer as Majority Leader, they will then need to decide how to fill the position and with whom.

Here is the full statement:

“The allegations made against Rep. Kramer are very serious and we are glad he recognizes the need to seek treatment. We hope in so doing, he will come to terms with his problems so that no woman will ever again be subject to this alleged inappropriate behavior.

“We believe the serious nature of the alleged incidents require us to ask the Assembly Republican Caucus to remove Rep. Kramer from his position as the Assembly Majority Leader.  It is clear he has lost our trust and confidence.  On Tuesday, Assembly Republicans will take a vote to remove him from his leadership position and we will then determine how best to fill the position of Majority Leader.”
