MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he "definitely" thinks Republicans are correct in removing Rep. Bill Kramer as majority leader of the state Assembly amid sexual harassment allegations.
Walker was asked Monday about Kramer in Green Bay.
Assembly Republicans planned to vote Tuesday on removing Kramer as majority leader, the second highest post in the Assembly.
Kramer has not commented on the allegations that he groped a woman and verbally abused another one while in Washington for a fundraiser. Kramer's chief of staff says he will not be at the vote because he is in treatment.
Walker says he doesn't know anything more about the allegations than what he's read in press reports, but if true Kramer should resign his seat.
