Kramer pleads not guilty to 2 assault charges
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — State Rep. Bill Kramer has pleaded not guilty to charges that he groped a woman’s breasts following a Republican fundraiser. Kramer is the Assembly’s former majority leader. He’s charged with two counts of second-degree sexual assault. He waived his preliminary hearing Thursday, and defense attorney Eduardo Borda entered the pleas on his behalf. Kramer has represented Waukesha, an ultra-conservative city in southeastern Wisconsin, since 2006. Majority Republicans took away his leadership position after allegations surfaced that he may have sexually harassed a lobbyist and a Wisconsin legislative staffer in February. After those allegations were revealed, another woman said Kramer attacked her as well during an event in Muskego three years ago. Those allegations led to the criminal charges.
