Eric Schneiderman's Legacy in Financial Scenarios Could Endure His Downfall

T182458Z_988935744_RC1F05E5BFF0_RTRMADP_3_USA-POLITICS-CONSERVATIVES Poll: Do you agree with Eric Schneiderman's resignation?

But this president has raised concerns that he would abuse that power by repeatedly terming Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election a "witch hunt". And since Schneiderman was accused of choking at least one woman, he could potentially be prosecuted under a 2010 law he helped pass, which made choking a misdemeanor. She also has considerable credentials, arguing 20 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The details of a failed police sting against Weinstein and the suggestion by some that Vance's office failed to properly handle the case were the subject of a previous New Yorker article that led to numerous Hollywood actresses coming forward to allege sexual harassment and assault at Weinstein's hands.

Mr Schneiderman became attorney general in 2010 and had meant to run for re-election to the post this year.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman stepped down from his role on Monday after being accused of violence and abuse by four women. Both of them sought medical treatment for the violence.

"The good legal work you did for women does not absolve you", Bee said on her show. Two other women whom he had dated, who did not reveal their identities, also told the magazine that Schneiderman had done similar acts with them. However, the description now reads, "We taped this segment before the allegations against Eric Schneiderman came to light, and we sincerely apologize for characterizing him as a hero when, to so many women, he was the vilest villain".

But not in the eyes of the public.

We're asking you: Do you agree with Eric Schneiderman's immediate resignation?

"I mean, look, the movement is extraordinary". After all that has happened in Albany, I don't think I can be shocked, then I'm shocked again.

Madeline Singas, the Nassau County district attorney, was tapped by Cuomo. "But it's really very complicated", said Judy Harris Kluger, a former sex-crimes prosecutor and current executive director of Sanctuary for Families, which aids domestic-violence victims.

Schneiderman officially stepped down from the job Tuesday.

Among that work: investigating, at the governor's request, how the Manhattan district attorney's office handled a 2015 sexual assault complaint against Weinstein that resulted in no charges.

"We have never seen anything as despicable as what we've seen right here ..."

For now, the acting attorney general is Democrat Barbara Underwood, who was appointed New York's solicitor general in 2007. First elected in 2013, she was previously the city council president and is an attorney.

As the investigation gets underway, the State Legislature has begun accepting applications to fill the vacancy. We recommend that they avoid the appearance of politics by keeping Underwood until the end of the year or appoint some other nonpolitical choice.

Names floated May 8 included former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, celebrated for his efforts to fight corruption in state government, and law professor Zephyr Teachout, who posted a surprisingly strong showing with her challenge to Mr. Cuomo in the 2014 primary.
