DECISIVE ACTION ON REP.
State Assembly Republicans wasted no time ousting
Bill Kramer as their majority leader in response to
allegations that he was sexually inappropriate with
two women during a trip last week to Washington DC.
Kramer's actions were pretty ugly and certainly unworthy
of an elected public servant.
We're actually surprised Kramer hasn't resigned his
But more than the swiftness of the action by Kramer's
caucus we're impressed with the unanimity of the vote.
Let's face it, similarly repugnant behavior by elected
officials around this country have too often been
ignored or tolerated or worst of all implicitly accepted.
By speaking as one, Assembly Republicans have made
a definitive statement that sexual harassment will
not be swept under the rug and that reporting and
condemning such behavior is the right thing to do.
We respect and appreciate that response.
