ERIC SCHNEIDERMAN RESIGNS HOURS AFTER FOUR WOMEN ACCUSE HIM OF VIOLENCE

Newsweek




In a statement to the New Yorker, Schneiderman called his behavior consensual role-playing. “In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone," he said. "I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”
But the women who spoke to the New Yorker did not see it that way. Another woman, Michelle Manning Barish, also said that Schneiderman habitually hit her after drinking, in bed and without her consent. The article quoted two other women who were not named, describing the same pattern of behavior.
The story was published less than a week after reports that Schneiderman, at the urging of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, will appoint a special deputy to investigate Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr.’s handling of allegations against Harvey Weinstein.
Also last week, Schneiderman was named a “Champion of Choice” by the New York-based National Institute for Reproductive Health. "We are appalled and horrified to learn about the violent behavior ascribed to Eric Schneiderman. This is especially disappointing given his long history of advocacy and action in support of women’s rights," the NIRH said in a statement Monday night. "We believe it is our collective duty to trust women. It takes extraordinary courage to come forward with allegations of this magnitude — we hope they are taken seriously and that justice is served."
Schneiderman has also been a vocal and active anti-Trump attorney general, and his office has repeatedly filed legal challeges to Trump administration activities, from the travel ban to the Environmental Protection Agency. He has also often been regarded as a legal backup to Special Counsel Robert Mueller in case Trump pardons campaign staff, friends or possibly family for federal charges. The president cannot pardon state charges.
After the story was published, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand called for him to resign.
“In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” Schneiderman said in a statement tonight. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”

    Wow: “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” Schneiderman said in a statement tonight. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”
    I say these 4 women are fighting dirty.

    Dirty fighting is using tricks/dishonesty to injure the opponent “Dirty fight techniques are the great equalizer in a street fight. No matter how big or strong someone is, male or female, tall, short, skinny or fat, there are always vulnerable parts of the body.”

  2. Franken, Weiner, Schneiderman.

    Typical Democrat Jewish liberals who talk the liberal talk and then walk the woman-abusing walk when they think no one's watching.

    The accusers are not uneducated women.
    Accusations years later, not leaving the house after such actions, (one case without hospital suspicions, after hospital treatment), staying for years after this supposedly took place.

    Like the Spitzer case, there's something else going on here. (You dont really think Spitzer resigned cause of a history of peccadillos?) Remember the Hevesi case, which impacted many more people than just the Hevesi family (even the spinka rebbe, Michael Cohen (attorney for Trump) and his clients.)
