MADISON, Wis. (AP) A Wisconsin state representative accused of kissing two women against their will at political events plans to attend the first Assembly session day since the accusations were made.

Democratic Rep. Josh Zepnick said Thursday he saw no reason not to attend Tuesday's Assembly session day, even though Democratic leaders have called for him to resign and removed him from the committees he had been on.

Zepnick participated in open Democratic caucus Thursday, but left when it moved into closed caucus where lawmakers discuss positions on bills and other politically sensitive issues.

Zepnick says in an email, "Of course I'm going to be at the Floor session Tuesday. Why wouldn't I be?!"

Zepnick has held the seat since 2003 and has said he will decide later whether to seek re-election this year.
