[Ed. – That was quick.]
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has resigned following the stunning New Yorker report on four women accusing him of physical violence.
The women — two of whom went public with their identities — all allege physical abuse and violence from Schneiderman, among the many many disturbing claims detailed in the New Yorker piece, including threats he made. …
In response to the report, Schneiderman denied he engaged in any non-consensual behavior and said he had been “role-playing.” Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand had called on him to resign earlier tonight.
And then, just hours after the report was released, Schneiderman put out a statement announcing his resignation.
