New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigns after assault claims

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigns after assault claims

Schneiderman, a Democrat and former state senator in Manhattan and the Bronx, was accused of seriously battering four women in a bombshell report by journalist Ronan Farrow. "Something about the structure and incentives of New York's political system means that those who rise ultimately have to do things that compromise their character in one way or another".

"I expect that NY will continue its efforts and so will all the other states involved in the coalition", Frosh said in an interview. Considering how many women Schneiderman is accused of abusing, "look out" may have been some very timely advice.

Cox added: "It begs the question of who in New York Democratic circles knew about this, and did he decline to prosecute Governor Cuomo's corruption for fear of his secrets being revealed?"

Schneiderman's resignation, effective Tuesday, does not appear to directly affect his office's efforts to investigate sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein, state officials and advocates suggested.

"They had the courage to make it public, they had the courage to take on an attorney general who they believed threatened them not to go public", Cuomo said.

The National Organization for Women is demanding that the NY state legislature should appoint a woman with a strong record of protecting women from sexual predators to replace Eric Schneiderman.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has opened a probe into the allegations, the office said in a statement. In a tweet, Cuomo said: "No one is above the law, including New York's top legal officer". "These are institutions. They had a problem with NY law so they went to the legislature with it".

The New Yorker noted that when it won its Pulitzer for coverage of sexual harassment, Schneiderman issued a congratulatory tweet, praising "the courageous women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they had endured at the hands of powerful men".

Amazon to turn old downtown post office into tech hub
Vancouver applied, but was not among the finalists for the project, which Amazon says it hopes to staff with 50,000 people. And last November, Amazon announced planed to add another downtown site in 2020 with 1,000 workers.

The alleged abuse often happened during what were supposed to be romantic encounters but the women all said the violence was not consensual.

Those calls apparently began to land Monday morning, after several weeks of rumors - in Albany and elsewhere - about a possible investigation into Schneiderman's personal life and behavior. "And people sworn to uphold the law especially are held to the highest standard".

"The Senate can not turn a blind eye to an act of domestic violence, a crime for which the state of NY has a zero-tolerance policy, and an attempt to evade responsibility for such a crime through dishonesty and bullying".

"Isn't there anyone who can save us from Trump?" the tweet asked.

- She has made the teaching rounds at several prominent New York City universities, including stints as a visiting professor at New York University School of Law and adjunct professor at Brooklyn Law School. Sometimes he shook her in bed and demanded she repeat phrases such as "I'm a little whore", Manning Barish said. "But I suppose you can say that about other people who were embroiled in scandals".

"The fact that Eric Schneiderman resigned within hours of the credible allegations against him demonstrates the strength of the public reckoning we are in the midst of - an era of unchecked misogyny is ending", said Sonia Ossorio, president of National Organization for Women - New York.

But Trump himself suggested in a cryptic September 11, 2013 tweet that Schneiderman had skeletons in his closet.
