Eric Schneiderman resigns after assault allegations

Within hours of a New Yorker investigation reporting on the stories of several women who accused him of assault, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has resigned. “Women’s issues had been a focal point for Mr. Schneiderman.” In particular, among other domestic violence laws, Schneiderman had backed the toughening of penalties for choking and interference with a victim’s breathing. [Danny Hakim and Vivian Wang, New York Times] My City Journal piece three years ago detailed how Schneiderman had become one of the nation’s most powerful and consequential progressive politicos. We previously covered disgraced former New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer’s involvement as a law enforcer with laws he was later to trip over.


  • Trump seems to have known a lot time ago.

    I wonder what Cuomo and other Dems knew.

  • That’s something that Nixon should be hammering at.

    And it could be why Cuomo dumped Schneiderman so quickly, before the collateral damage got worse.
