MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Republicans who have majority control of the Wisconsin state Assembly plan to meet Tuesday morning to vote on removing Rep. Bill Kramer as majority leader, the second most powerful position.
Kramer's office announced Saturday that he was entering unspecified treatment. Republicans with direct knowledge of the situation say at least two women have accused Kramer of sexually harassing them last week.
Assembly Republicans scheduled a caucus meeting for Tuesday morning to vote first on removing Kramer from his post. After that, they will decide whether to keep it vacant or fill it.
The session this year is nearly over. The Assembly is expected to be in session only a couple more days and there will be a new round of leadership elections in January.
