  • Kellyanne Conway on New York attorney general's resignation: 'Gotcha'

It was a swift and stunning fall for a Democrat who had pledged to use the power of his office to hold others accountable for abusing their power.

Schneiderman denied assaulting anyone or engaging in non-consensual sex - "a line I would not cross", said the divorced father of a daughter. "I have not assaulted anyone".

But after fellow Democrats in NY, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, quickly called for Schneiderman's resignation.

"In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me", he said in a statement late Monday. They did not report their allegations to the police at the time, but both say that they eventually sought medical attention after having been slapped hard across the ear and face, and also choked. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.

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 Associated Press is identifying the women because they agreed to tell their stories publicly. Last month, he and more than a dozen states sued the E.P.A. for failing to properly control methane pollution, a greenhouse gas. For my daughter and for all women. I was fully dressed and remained that way.

[T] wo of the women, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, have talked to The New Yorker on the record, because they feel that doing so could protect other women.

Manning Barish said she was involved with Schneiderman from mid-2013 through the end of 2014.

Selvaratnam added, "I was scared what he might do if I left him. He's like the one guy they wouldn't let into 'Westworld, '" Noah said Tuesday night. She reportedly took a photo of the injury and showed it to her friends. But now that the 63-year-old Democrat has been accused of choking, slapping, threatening and otherwise abusing four women during intimate encounters, Bee and her team are attempting to backtrack their love for the pervy pol.

Schneiderman was also a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement, taking legal action against disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

"It is a sad day for the state of NY, but no one is above the law", said Assemblyman Billy Jones, D-Chateaugay. The company later fired Weinstein. "The fearless women who chose to come forward deserve swift and definitive justice in this matter", Cuomo said in a statement. The center, financed with a almost $6 million grant from former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg, helps coordinate efforts between Democratic state attorneys general.

The state Constitution requires the Legislature to fill vacancies.

He also has been a longtime critic of President Donald Trump, and has been part of several efforts to push back against some of his actions in the White House, like the rescinding of protection for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.
