New York's Legislature Must Appoint a Woman Attorney General

Posted May 09, 2018

Whether this cheerfest was simply over the arrival of a new Democrat example of stunning hypocrisy (We can see "But what about Eric Schneiderman" being typed now) or the hopes of a reprieve for President Trump (or both), Schneiderman's departure doesn't mean Trump has any less heat on him from NY prosecutors. No one is above the law, including New York's top legal officer. Two of them described repeated violence.

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.

"Time and time again, New Yorkers have been betrayed by statewide office holders who have abused their office in some of the most despicable ways, it's up to the legislature to conduct a transparent bipartisan process, with public hearings that allow a full vetting of our next attorney general", Molinaro said in the statement.

Cuomo complimented the women who came forward...and credited the Me Too Movement for this and other examples of change.

In sum, "more than 100 legal or administrative actions" were taken against the Trump administration and congressional Republicans under Schneiderman's watch, according to popular blog Talking Points Memo (TPM).

Following the resignation, Trump aide Kellyanne Conway tweeted "Gotcha". The Associated Press is identifying the women because they agreed to tell their stories publicly.

But no state has matched New York's recent record in terms of sheer volume of scandal.

"Unfortunately, Sen. Warren has a history of hesitating or refusing to stand up for women when the culprits are Democrats", Kingston said in the statement.

De Blasio urged anyone "victimized" by Schneiderman who has yet to come forward to "please come forward to NYPD".

Local leaders had strong words for now former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

After the suspects beat up the family members of the girls because they complained of them, and she herself burned to death. The government recently put out an executive order to change the law and bring in the death penalty for child rapists.

That's why many people were surprised by allegations he slapped, choked and spat on at least four women with whom he was romantically involved.

At a police headquarters briefing, Commissioner James O'Neill confirmed none of the women filed complaints against Schneiderman. "And secondly, if they [the alleged victims] were coerced or forced in any way shape or form, or suffered physical abuse, those are state crimes that can be investigated by a district attorney".

"In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone", he said. "I have never engaged in non-consensual sex".

Zephyr Teachout, who challenged Cuomo in the 2014 gubernatorial Democratic primary, tweeted that she might be interested, saying that she is "seriously considering running for attorney general". UBS Group AG in March agreed to pay $230 million to resolve its part in the probe.
