District Attorney Accused In 'Sexting' Scandal Resigns

Photo Courtesy -- Getty Images(GREEN BAY, Wis.) -- Ken Kratz, the Calumet County, Wisconsin district attorney accused of sending sexual text messages has resigned, according to WBAY-TV.  Kratz handed his resignation letter to Governor Jim Doyle.

Kratz' resignation comes two weeks after the governor received two formal complaints from Calumet County residents asking him to remove Kratz from office.

In the short letter, Kratz expressed sadness and regret over his resignation, but said he hopes to repair his reputation and resume his legal career.

The scandal unraveled nearly three weeks ago, when Kratz admitted to sending sexually suggestive text messages to domestic abuse victim Stephanie Van Groll while prosecuting her ex-boyfriend's case.

Since then, at least four more women have come forward, alleging Kratz also sent them inappropriate messages over the years.
