MADISON, Wis. -- Assembly Republicans say they plan to take a vote to strip embattled Majority Leader Bill Kramer from his leadership position.

Kramer's office said Saturday that he has checked into a treatment center as he faces pressure to resign amid charges that he sexually harassed multiple women at a Republican fundraiser.

According to the statement from Assembly Republican leadership Saturday, they hope that Kramer comes to terms with his problems but they've lost trust and confidence in him. The statement said the serious nature of the allegations require them to take the vote Tuesday. They will then determine how best to fill the position.

Kramer, who was elected by Republican Assembly members as majority leader in September, could not immediately be reached for comment.
