Brad Schimel won't keep campaign donation from ousted Assembly majority leader

WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - A candidate for Wisconsin attorney general says he will not keep a $500 campaign gift from former Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer.

Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel tells the Journal Sentinel he'll give Kramer's donation to charity -- but a spokesman did not say which group would receive it.

Kramer was removed from his leadership post by his fellow Assembly Republicans, amid allegations that he groped and made lewd remarks to two women last week.

Schimel is the lone Republican running for attorney general this fall, along with three Democrats.

Last week, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke refused to keep a $4,500 campaign gift. It was from well-known attorney Daniel Rottier, who was convicted of striking his wife with a cane.  

Burke gave the donation to a Madison group that operates a shelter for domestic abuse victims.
