GOP ‘sexting’ prosecutor also harassed woman seeking pardon
APNewsBreak: Law student says ‘sexting’ Wis. DA harassed her as she sought a pardon from him
A law student says a Wisconsin prosecutor under fire for sending racy text messages to a domestic abuse victim sent her similar texts in 2008 after agreeing to help her seek a pardon.
Maria Ruskiewicz (russ-KAH’-witz) told The Associated Press on Tuesday that she met Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz in his office in 2008 to discuss a decade-old drug conviction. Afterward, she says Kratz sent her text messages that soon turned harassing, including one that asked how she would please him in bed.
An Oklahoma City University of Law administrator confirmed that Ruskiewicz was so upset by the messages that they met in 2008 to discuss how to respond. A Wisconsin prosecutor also says Ruskiewicz told him last year about Kratz’s conduct.
Kratz’s lawyer says he doesn’t know anything about the case.
