"My behavior was inappropriate," Kratz said. "I'm embarrassed and ashamed for the choices that I made, and the fault was mine alone."

Kratz's office announced Monday he'd gone on leave.

Adding to Kratz's woes, a second woman came forward Monday to claim similar harassment, saying Kratz had offered to let her attend an autopsy. In an e-mail written to Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle last week, the woman claimed to have met Kratz online in December 2009. On a dinner date, the woman said Kratz divulged to her the details of an ongoing murder investigation in which a woman was believed to have been killed by her boyfriend.

Kratz's recently hired attorney, Robert J. Craanen, did not return calls for comment on the most recent accusation, but Craanen did deny to the AP the second woman's claim about the autopsy date and said he knew nothing of Ruskiewicz's claims.
