Republican Bill Kramer was accused in the criminal complaint
of forcibly kissing the female aide and grabbing her breasts
after a political event in suburban Milwaukee in April 2011, the
criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County said.
Kramer is charged with two counts of second degree sexual
assault, which calls for up to 40 years in prison and a $100,000
fine on each count.
The woman was not identified in the complaint. She was described
as an aide to a senator who decided to come forward after
recently hearing about the similar allegations recently made
against Kramer, according to the complaint.
Kramer's lawyer and representatives from his political staff
could not be reached immediately for comment.
Republicans removed Kramer from the Assembly leader post on
March 4, a week after he was accused by two women of sexual
harassment while he was in Washington D.C. for a fundraiser.
Kramer, 49, entered a treatment facility after his trip to
Washington, according to his staff.
Kramer notified state election officials on Monday he would not
seek reelection in November.
