District Attorney Brad Schimel said Wednesday that charges of sexual assault against Rep. Bill Kramer were referred to his office by the Muskego Police Department.
Schimel said via email that he could not comment on the nature of the allegations, which are being reviewed by a deputy district attorney in his office.
"It will be reviewed quickly, but I have no way of knowing whether or not any charge will be issued, nor can I say whether there might be any further investigation required, so I could not predict a timeline at this point," he wrote.
Kramer, a lifelong resident of Waukesha, was removed as majority leader earlier this month by Assembly Republicans after accusations that he sexually harassed one woman and inappropriately touched another while in Washington, D.C.
Gov. Scott Walker and others have called on him to resign. He filed paperwork Monday with state election authorities saying he would not be running for re-election.
A representative in Kramer's Madison office said he was not available for comment.
