The Manhattan lawyer running for New York attorney general is calling for a broader investigation into Eric Schneiderman's alleged behavior and whether there was a cover-up.
Junior also reposted his dad's 2013 tweet: "Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone - next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman". She has been the state's Solitictor General since 2007. Mr. Schneiderman was in a position of power where he represented the people of New York, by committing these awful acts he broke the public trust. Singas is the former head of the Special Victims Bureau at the Nassau district attorney's office.
She has also worked in the Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn district attorney offices. "Now, after suing Harvey Weinstein, he faces a #MeToo reckoning of his own".
The Manhattan DA's Office announced Monday night it was looking into criminal charges against Schneiderman for allegedly choking and slapping four women.
If it turns out Schneiderman is investigated, tried and found guilty of the accusations, particularly felony death threats, it will be a fitting bit of "karma" that he would emerge a "prohibited person", forbidden by law to own a gun. "I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018".
But we should pause when we sense that men are performing feminism for kudos or influence rather than simply doing the right thing.
An example: "How many women have accused your pappy n how many did he pay to stay quiet? You want to be my whore".
In a statement, Schneiderman says he engaged in "role-playing and other consensual sexual activity", but didn't assault anyone. "I have not assaulted anyone". These allegations are completely inconsistent with the man I know, who has always been someone of the highest character, outstanding values and a loving father.
But it is hard to see lasting benefits from the White House's standpoint.
Two of the women spoke on the record to The New Yorker. A fourth woman said Schneiderman slapped her when she rebuffed him, but also asked to remain unidentified.
Four women accused the Democrat of physical violence in a New Yorker article published Monday evening.
Two of the women spoke on record to The New Yorker, which published their claims against Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (SHNEYE'-dur-muhn) on Monday.
The Associated Press is identifying the two women who spoke to The New Yorker because they agreed to tell their stories publicly. Was his prescience based on rumor? "They allege that he repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed..." "This did not happen while we were having sex. I didn't want to jeopardize that".
"We have never seen anything as despicable as what we've seen right here", Schneiderman said then. "Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner". The women accusing him said seeing him speak out on sexual misconduct issues was part of the impetus in them coming forward.
Barbara Underwood will step in as acting attorney general. He has a history of recognition for activism on behalf of women's causes, including reproductive rights.
