OLR Director Keith Sellen said that his office is reopening the investigation since the new revelations indicate "a pattern of conduct" by Kratz, The Associated Press reports.
The AP says:
The agency closed the case in March, saying the text messages were inappropriate but did not amount to professional misconduct. If the agency had found misconduct, it could have reprimanded, suspended or even sought to disbar Kratz.
Kratz has refused to step down, but went on medical leave earlier this week. Gov. Jim Doyle also began taking steps this week to have Kratz removed from office.
