AG Candidate Blames Higher Ups For Sexting DA's Stay in Office
Scott Hassett's been an attorney for a long time. He's never heard of a district attorney acting with as much a lack of professionalism as Calumet county DA Ken Kratz, the guy who was apparently sending racy text messages to a crime victim. But Hassett, running for state attorney general, also says the dearth of professionalism extends up the ladder to current attorney general JB Van Hollen because he knew what Kratz had been up to for almost a year and didn't do anything about it. Since the first sexting accusation, other women have come forward with more allegations that Kratz was trying to hook up via text message with them, too. Governor Doyle has begun the process to remove Kratz from office.
