A disgraced Wisconsin lawmaker has been charged on allegations that he aggressively groped a female legislative staffer. Two felony counts of second-degree sexual assault have been filed against Representative Bill Kramer in connection to the incident, which took place three years ago in the parking lot of a Muskego bar.
The charges come in the wake of accusations that the 49-year-old Waukesha Republican groped an aide and sexually harassed another women, during an incident at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser in late April.
His Republican colleagues stripped Kramer of his title as Assembly majority leader earlier this month after those allegations surfaced, and Kramer filed paperwork this week indicating that he would not run for re-election.
The criminal complaint says that Kramer grabbed the breasts of the unnamed staffer following a night of heavy drinking at the High Tide Pub & Grille in April of 2011. The complaint also includes graphic statements allegedly made by Kramer to the complainant, who spoke to a Muskego police detective earlier this month.
Kramer reportedly checked himself into a treatment facility in the wake of the revelations about the events in Washington. He has not been seen in public since then and his office has made no statements.
