NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigns



Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse

Eric Schneiderman has raised his profile as a voice against sexual misconduct. Now, after suing Harvey Weinstein, he faces a #MeToo reckoning of his own.

By Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow

May 7, 2018

As Eric Schneiderman used the authority of his office to assume a major role in the #MeToo movement, the distress of four women with whom he has had romantic relationships or encounters grew.

Well, men in power need to take heed - women are SERIOUS about the Me Too movement.

Again, the accused Democrat steps down.
If he was a Republican, they'd stand behind him, and he'd probably be re-elected...

Just saying...

Yes, I get your point- a la Al Franken. This is how we are so screwed up now with the press being needed for transparency, and yet taking the place of the justice system due to the crumbling integrity of our government. Add in the social media phenom and it's pretty toxic for anyone. Do you think he's being taken down?

If he IS guilty of this, even I am shocked at how many abusers there really are in powerful positions. I'm very jaded in the first place.

there are many examples on both sides where the accused did not step down.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

He's seems to be guilty, and probably should step down. I'm just saying, right or wrong, the Democrats usually put pressure on their own, and turn on them (like Al Franken and John Conyers, and now Schneiderman). While the Republicans generally close rank, and support their candidates no matter what. So a disgraceful man like Roy Moore stayed on the ballot, and had support and a real chance of winning. And Trump is President, despite numerous credible allegations of sexual misconduct.

MANY on the right, very very few on the left. Why? The right wing is so completely corrupt it is sickening.

This shit HAS TO STOP. We need more women at the top levels of government to run things properly. The men are failing. Morally weak Jekyll & Hyde double standard. I just wonder how Schneiderman felt prosecuting Weinstein - guilty as fuck, or this kinda makes up for my own behavior, or this is a good cover?

what is it called when you make sweeping negative identity-based generalizations about a group of people?

Eric Schneiderman And The Particular Horror Of Strangling Women

Melissa Jeltsen
1 day ago

NEW YORK ― In March 2010, then-state Sen. Eric Schneiderman held a press conference to announce his new bill, which would make strangulation ― a uniquely terrifying form of violence common in abusive relationships ― a serious crime in the state of New York.

On Monday, eight years later, Schneiderman resigned his post as New York’s attorney general after two ex-girlfriends came forward with claims that he strangled and physically abused them while serving as the state’s top law enforcement official. In a statement, Schneiderman denied the allegations, saying: “In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”

If charges are brought in New York, Schneiderman’s own bill may be used against him.

Women who have been strangled are seven times more likely to become a homicide victim in the future, according to a 2008 study. Expertsnow believe men who strangle their partners are among the most dangerous abusers out there.

“When a woman has been strangled, she’s much more likely to be battered again by the same man, and much more likely to later be killed by him,” said Casey Gwinn, a former San Diego city attorney who is an expert on domestic violence. “That’s why strangling a woman is not a fetish, it is a felony.”

Strangulation is a favorite tactic of abusers, as it terrorizes victims into submission, often without leaving any visible marks. It is the ultimate form of control to literally have someone’s life in your hands. It is also notoriously difficult to prosecute. Schneiderman knew all this.


This is what we're looking at here, whatever fucking party he's in. hammer

Filing: Trump Knew Of Schneiderman Accusations in 2013

President Donald Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen both knew of three women who accused former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman of sexually inappropriate behavior back in 2013, according to a letter sent by an attorney representing the women.

The filing made by attorney Peter J. Gleason to U.S. Southern District Court Judge Kimba Wood Friday stated that he told a journalist about each of the women and the reporter suggested he speak with Donald Trump about the matter in 2013.

Gleason also asserts that he later received a call from Cohen, which he believed confirmed Trump had indeed heard about the allegations made against Schneiderman...

Trump had predicted Schneiderman’s demise in a tweet sent in September 2013, stating that he would be gone after the falls of fellow New York officials Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer due to sex scandals.

“Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone - next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner,” Trump tweeted.


The three Schneiderman accusers revealed by Gleason appeared to be separate from the four women who made similar accusations against Schneiderman in a report by The New Yorker published earlier this week. He was accused of sexual violence, including threatening and slapping the women, allegedly referring to one as his “brown slave” and telling her to call him “master.”


eek There is a Trump/Cohen connection to this, complete with tweet. Sexual and racial violence are often connected - after that they go after the kids and kick the dog too. Signed, Disgusted
