New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigns over women-beating allegations

Manhattan District Attorney Opens Investigation Into Attorney General Physical Abuse Allegations as Fallout Continues

NY Attorney General Stepping Down Following Abuse Allegations

"I am honored to serve the people of NY as acting attorney general".

On Monday night, journalist Ronan Farrow of the New Yorker broke the bombshell story which revealed that Eric Schneiderman had been linked to physical abuse of four different women, with one victim accusing the New York Attorney General of forcing her to call him "master" as he allegedly referred to her as his "brown slave".

The New Yorker published a report on Monday in which four women accused Schneiderman of physical abuse.

Healey called the allegations against Schneiderman "troubling and disturbing" but says the office of attorney general is always bigger than one AG.

Earlier this year, the NY attorney general's office, led by Eric Schneiderman, brought a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein's former production company, after the disgraced Hollywood mogul was accused of decades of sexual misconduct.

The Manhattan District Attorney has opened an investigation into the allegations of violence.

This will prompt a summer byelection in her Lewisham East seat, which has a 21,000 majority. The move, revealed by the Guardian last month , was confirmed by City Hall on Tuesday.


Schneiderman was also an outspoken foe of President Donald Trump, filing more than 100 lawsuits challenging the administration on immigration, environmental standards and taxation. Schneiderman was a major voice working against President Trump's agenda. "Or substantially less than that".

Schneiderman's successor will be picked by the State Assembly and Senate in a joint ballot in a process that will begin on Tuesday according to a spokesperson for speaker Carl E. Heastie. In a tweet, Cuomo said: "No one is above the law, including New York's top legal officer". She confirmed on Twitter she is interested.

In 2008, former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer resigned amid a prostitution scandal. Previously, she worked as a web producer at CBS New York and News 12.

"She clearly really wants to be attorney general and she's not taking any chances". Manning Barish said he would physically force the glass to her mouth like she was "a baby who wouldn't eat its food. spilling it down my chin and on my chest".

Bennett Liebman, an Albany Law School professor who has held several high-ranking posts in state government, predicted Cuomo will take a keen interest in the selection, but only from behind the scenes. But a year later, Koppell lost to Karen Burstein in the Democratic primary.

Also, Politico reported that U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice, a Long Island Democrat, is interested in running for attorney general.

"The women and men who serve in the New York Attorney General's Office work every day to enforce the law and protect the rights of all Americans".

And unlike so numerous recent #MeToo accusations against those in government, Hollywood and media, the charges against Schneiderman were from the last few years, the right now, not dredged up out of the dim recesses of history. Schneiderman had earned national recognition for playing a central role in resisting the Trump's administration policies.

Beyond the shock of the allegations and sudden resignation, this may change the regulatory environment significantly for nonprofits in ny.

Sonia Ossorio, president of the NY chapter of the National Organization for Women in NY, greeted Schneiderman's resignation by stating: "The era of unchecked misogyny has ended".

Michelle Manning Barish had a two-year relationship with Mr Schneiderman.

"It's a conflict of interest", she said. That investigation began with a referral from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III but is being handled by federal prosecutors in NY.
