Samantha Bee rips into former NY AG Eric Schneiderman over abuse allegations

Democrats who've reportedly expressed interest include Singas' old boss, former Nassau District Attorney and current U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-Garden City) - who lost a 2010 Democratic primary to Schneiderman for the AG post - state Sen.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has appointed a special prosecutor to look into the abuse claims.

State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced plans for an open interview process for the legislature to appoint a new state attorney general, now that Eric Schneiderman has resigned over domestic violence allegations.

Harris Kluger said the former attorney general "clearly had his demons", and she credits the women who survived the alleged abuse for taking the risk and speaking out. The article, by Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow, has a subhead of "Eric Schneiderman has raised his profile as a voice against sexual misconduct".

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.

A newly announced Republican-Conservative candidate for NY attorney general is asking "who else knew" about the allegations that led to the downfall of Democrat Eric Schneiderman.

"Without the reporting of the @nytimes and the @newyorker_and the fearless women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they endured at the hands of powerful men_there would not be the critical national reckoning underway". "Our top law officer, this guy with a platform for women's rights, just smacked away so much of what I thought he stood for".

Individually, junior Lauren Stephenson (67-69-66/202) and sophomore Kristen Gillman (72-68-66/206) were 6-under par on Wednesday. The Lady Bears finished in a tie for third place, despite having three players come down with a virus forcing one to withdraw.

The women's accusations, with their vivid detail and consistency, would put any man in a bad light, but they held even greater shock value because of how dramatically they contrast the image Schneiderman had cultivated for himself as a purported champion of women.

Jennifer Cunningham, Mr Schneiderman's ex-wife, released a statement on Monday saying: "I've known Eric for almost 35 years as a husband, father, and friend".

He will be replaced, the work of the Attorney General's office will continue and voters will, in all likelihood, forget all about him.

"I got up to try to shove him back, or take a swing, and he pushed me back down".

"No one knows better than you how many people you've assaulted or harassed", Bee said. "If proven, the allegations of choking and physical abuse are criminal acts".

"The slaps started after we'd gotten to know each other", she recalled. 'It was at first as if he were testing me. During the trial in February, a witness for Schneiderman admitted to creating a fake Facebook account used to spy on the pro-lifers and gain access to the personal data of hundreds of pro-life advocates working around the country. "Eventually, she says, 'we could rarely have sex without him beating me'".
