"We have never seen anything as despicable as what we've seen here", Schneiderman declared.

Schneiderman quit after four women accused him of mental and physical abuse, much of which occurred during romantic relationships with the former attorney general.

Planned Parenthood is defending an alleged abuser of women over a woman who is a political opponent. After joining the Nassau County district attorney's office, she was appointed chief of the newly created Special Victims Bureau.

Schneiderman had not only positioned himself as a green champion, but also as a champion for women.

"He started calling me his "brown slave" and demanding that I repeat that I was 'his property, '" she said, pushing back against the notion that what happened was "sexual play acting". She stood beside Schneiderman when he announced a settlement a year ago with a hospital that had been billing rape victims for exams.

"In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me", Schneiderman said in a statement Monday. President of the National Institute for Reproductive Health, Andrea Miller, said, "There is no way to reconcile his public record with his private actions".

Maloney is set to compete this fall with Orange County Legislator Jim O'Donnell, a Goshen Republican, for New York's 18th Congressional District seat. Kirsten Gillibrand, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie.

Schneiderman officially stepped down from the job Tuesday.

The developments brought a tart tweet from President Donald Trump's eldest son.

Soon after that, Schneiderman issued a denial, saying the accusations stemmed from consensual role-playing.


There is no politician so valuable it justifies overlooking, ignoring or sweeping the kind of allegations leveled at Schneiderman under the rug.

So what are strong women to do if even the men who seem like good feminists might be misogynists, too? Weinstein denies any non-consensual sex.

Vance freaked after Cuomo named Singas as the special prosecutor in the investigation of the disgraced ex-attorney general, accused by at least four women of choking and assaulting them.

"When you are dealing with a person who has a lot of power in society, those stakes can feel so high and it can feel that much harder to come forward and speak out", Goldsmith said, adding that the claims made by the women accusing Schneiderman fit a typical pattern of domestic abuse.

Schneiderman's denials, however, were not enough for New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who called for Schneiderman's resignation within mere hours of the news breaking.

Some of the alleged behavior took place in 2016 and earlier, according to The New Yorker story.

"No-one is above the law, including New York's top legal officer", he said.

"I am honored to serve the people of NY as acting Attorney General", Underwood said in a statement released after her appointment. "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. Amy Spitalnick, press secretary for the Office of the New York Attorney General, told The Washington Post by email that there will be "no changes" on environmental litigation.
