Public should be part of next attorney general selection — Cuomo


Yesterday, Schneiderman formally stepped down as attorney general, after a report by The New Yorker detailed accusations of physical violence and verbal abuse by four women, including being slapped and choked.

On Tuesday night, Cuomo announced a special prosecutor to investigate the allegations against Schneiderman.

Many members of what's widely known as the kink community are outraged that Eric Schneiderman, in resigning as New York's attorney general, depicted his alleged violence toward several women as "role-playing and other consensual sexual activity".

"She brings the great experience of being Nassau County district attorney and United States congresswoman", Zimmerman said.

"These are women who had nothing to gain by coming forward and everything to lose", said Ronan Farrow, who co-authored the article with Jane Mayer.

Robert Zimmerman, a Democratic national committeeman, said Rice would be an outstanding attorney general.

Michelle Manning-Barish and Eric Schneiderman in better times. My ear was ringing.

And lest we forget: Schneiderman had one last solo victory lap last month over the finalization of a $25 million settlement for victims of the fraudulent Trump University. The other Republican candidates are state Representative Geoff Diehl (R-Whitman) and former Mitt Romney aide and political consultant Beth Lindstrom. "I will bet on that to survive this presidency". And to make their pitch, the prosecutors rallied behind another prosecutor, James Comey, whom Donald Trump had fired as FBI director days earlier. I'm remembering the man, who was funny and brilliant.

In my case, he never did, so maybe it really was an accident.

The New York State Assembly will choose a replacement for Schneiderman, who was up for re-election in November.

Schneiderman released a statement Monday on Twitter saying he had engaged in "role-playing". The practice - though still a taboo topic in some respects - has made incursions into the cultural mainstream in recent years, in part because of the popularity of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" novels and films. "I have not assaulted anyone", he said. "I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross". "And we need to build this movement from the ground up focusing on state as well as federal action". "This was abusive, demeaning, threatening behaviour".

"It's unacceptable", said A.J. Allen, of Hudson. After Schneiderman's resignation, allies of Trump cheered his demise. His statement of resignation was not posted. "I thought it was a very powerful and damning set of facts", he said. According to the witness, Schneiderman not only allowed her to continue, but provided her with a hidden video camera to film pro-lifers outside the facility. "You're going to get a safety plan and you can get a map for getting out safely, for healing the trauma, and moving, someday hopefully, to a healthy relationship".

Allegations of harassment by Schneiderman would subject him to other misdemeanor charges, according to Saland.

In a different matter, the Washington Free Beacon has reported that a New York appellate court again ordered that state's top cop to pay thousands of dollars in attorney's fees for improperly denying a request for documents under the state's Freedom of Information Law.

"She's an extraordinarily competent woman, so I have no fear in the immediate".

In addition, two sources said Eve is also exploring a candidacy.

Schneiderman will be replaced in the interim by Solicitor General Barbara Underwood. "Rest assured, you will be believed, and that information will be important to protecting others, " he said.
