Schneiderman Resigns Over Abuse Allegations
State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is stepping down after accusations surfaced he physically abused four women. The allegations were published Monday in The New Yorker with two women going on the record and the others concealing their identity but the magazine confirmed one woman’s allegations and reporters saw photos of injuries the other woman suffered. In a statement on the Attorney General's website, Schneiderman says while these allegations are unrelated to professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent him from leading the office’s work at this critical time. His resignation is effective at the end of today.
