COPY-Knudson not interested in majority leader post
By SCOTT BAUER Associated Press
MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican state Rep. Dean Knudson, of Hudson, says he is not interested in taking over as majority leader of the state Assembly.
Assembly Republicans are scheduled to meet Tuesday to vote on removing Bill Kramer as majority leader. He faces allegations that he sexually harassed at least two women last week.
Knudson ran against Kramer for the position in September and lost. He issued a statement Monday saying he has no interest in the position.
Rep. Joan Ballweg says Republicans plan to discuss privately on Tuesday whether to fill the position or leave it vacant. Ballweg says she learned of the allegations during a conference call with other Republican leaders and they made her "very uncomfortable."
