Area county attorney to run for attorney general

Farrow on Schneiderman This was not role-play

Poll: Do you agree with Eric Schneiderman's resignation?

As a state senator before getting elected attorney general, Schneiderman chaired an inquiry that led to a colleague's expulsion over a domestic-violence conviction.

A third woman, who was not identified, made similar accusations of nonconsensual physical violence, while a fourth - who was not identified but was described as an attorney who has held high positions in the NY legal sphere - told the magazine that when she rejected one of Schneiderman's advances, he "slapped her across the face with such force that it left a mark that lingered the next day".

Planned Parenthood Action, the political arm of the nation's largest abortion provider, told White House advisor Kellyanne Conway to delete her Twitter account Monday after she called out disgraced New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over horrific abuse allegations. "The good legal work that you did does not absolve you".

One of the women told the magazine Schneiderman hit her so hard her ear bled, and another said he left on her face a mark that was still visible the next day.

"In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me", Schneiderman said in a statement Monday.

Former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman didn't want to answer questions about the #MeToo movement in the days before abuse allegations against him were made public, according to an interview he gave to Alec Baldwin published Tuesday.

Q. Will Singas be able to continue running the Nassau District Attorney's Office, which has a staff of 300, including more than 160 lawyers, while operating as a special prosecutor? "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. Underwood is not thought to be interested in running for the office, so the invitation means that Democrats could seek to appoint a placeholder until elections are held in November.

Underwood was appointed solicitor general by then-Attorney General Andrew Cuomo in 2007, and Schneiderman kept her on once he took office in 2011.

Vance fired back that same evening, issuing a two-page letter to Cuomo saying the only conflict was created by Cuomo when he asked the attorney general to review the handling of the Weinstein case by the Manhattan district attorney and the NYPD.

"The scope of the problem we're facing", Schneiderman said, "is massive, and it requires a multi-state effort".
