MADISON — Assembly Democrats are demanding former Majority Leader Bill Kramer resign in the wake of sexual assault and harassment allegations.

Majority Republicans stripped Kramer of his leadership position last month. Republican leaders have asked Kramer to resign but say they wonít push to expel him from office. The Assembly has adjourned for the year and Kramer has said he wonít seek re-election in November.

Democratic Minority Leader Peter Barca and three other Democratic representatives sent Kramer a letter on Monday demanding he give up his seat. They also sent a letter to Republican leaders accusing them of not going far enough to discipline Kramer and suggesting they form an ethics committee to weigh sanctions against him.

Kramerís attorney and a spokeswoman for Assembly Speaker Robin Vos didnít immediately return messages.
