A.G. Schneiderman Resigns Following Allegations of Violence Against Women:


New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman abruptly resigned Monday night after The

New Yorker published accusations by four women saying Schneiderman was violent toward them.  Two of the women were previously in relationships with Scheiderman and they described his actions as “assault” and that his behavior was fueled by heavy drinking.  All four women said the alleged violence was non-consensual.  New York police said in a statement that they had no complaints against Scheiderman on file.  The article states that the women did not report their allegations to police at the time, but that they did eventually seek medical attention after being slapped and choked.  One of the women said that Schneiderman warned her he could have her followed and her phones tapped, and two said that he threatened to kill them if they broke up with him.  In a statement, Schneiderman strongly denied the accusations, saying that while he has engaged in “role-playing and other consensual sexual activity” he has not assaulted anyone, and has “never engaged in non-consensual sex.”  Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand both called on Schneiderman to resign and in a second statement Schneiderman said that the allegations would “effectively prevent [him] from leading the office’s work at this critical time.”  Cuomo said he will seek an investigation into Schneiderman.
