WAUKESHA -- Former state Majority Leader Bill Kramer is due in court on allegations that he groped a woman following a GOP fundraiser three years ago.
 
The Republican Assemblyman is scheduled to make an initial appearance Monday morning. He's charged with two felony counts of second-degree sexual assault.
 
A woman told investigators he shoved her against her car after a Republican event in 2011. She said he tried to kiss her, groped her breasts and told her he wanted to have sex with her.
 
Kramer acknowledged to investigators that he kissed her good night but denies groping her.
 
Republicans stripped Kramer of his leadership position last month. They've asked him to resign but won't push to expel him from office.
 
Defense attorney James Gatzke says there's no need to rush judgment while the case is ongoing.
