MADISON - New problems for a state lawmaker who was previously accused of groping a woman.

Now, state Representative Bill Kramer faces sexual assault allegations in another incident.
 
District Attorney Brad Schimel tells TODAY'S TMJ4 his office was asked by Muskego Police to review the sexual assault allegation against Kramer for possible charges.
 
A decision is expected next week.
 
Waukesha Republican Bill Kramer was near the top of his game in the State Assembly until it all came crashing down last month.
 
Kramer was accused of sexually harassing a lobbyist and groping a legislative staffer while in DC for a fundraiser.
 
Republicans quickly removed him from his majority leadership position after the allegations surfaced and just this week Kramer said he was not seek re-election. 
 
His office staff told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Kramer checked himself into an unspecified treatment program. 
 
No one answered when we stopped by Kramer's home.
 
Muskego Police would not comment on the investigation but District Attorney Schimel confirms the new allegation, "We received a referral this morning from the Muskego Police Department seeking a criminal charge for an alleged sexual assault."
 
Schimel and Kramer are both Waukesha Republicans. 
 
Schimel is running for attorney general. Kramer donated $500 to Schimel's campaign last year. Schimel has since given that money to charity. 
 
Schimel says me he is staying out of the Kramer decision process and will not be involved. The case is being handled by one of his Deputy DA's.
