Kramer checks self into treatment facility following allegations of inappropriate behavior

Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer has checked himself into a treatment facility, his office said this afternoon.

The brief statement said there would be "no further comment at this time."

The development follows allegations Kramer, R-Waukesha, acted inappropriately during a trip to Washington, D.C., with fellow Republican legislative leaders for a fundraiser benefiting the state GOP.

Multiple GOP sources told WisPolitics.com the allegations included sexually harassing two women during the trip, which was for a state party fundraiser. 

The statement does not include any comment on whether Kramer planned to step down from his leadership post or his Assembly seat. Kramer is facing pressure from some GOP colleagues to resign as majority leader, according to Republican sources.

Assembly GOP leaders met last night to discuss the allegations, according to a spokeswoman for Assembly Speaker Robin Vos. 

Vos, R-Rochester, issued a statement last night saying he had recently been made aware of "serious allegations regarding inappropriate behavior by Rep. Kramer. Since I learned of those allegations I have been consulting with legal counsel and other legislators to understand what options are available." 

"The alleged behavior is reprehensible and won't be tolerated."
