According to The Hill, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned after a bombshell report detailing allegations from multiple women of physical abuse against him.
Just hours after The New Yorker on Monday published the claims from four women who said Schneiderman physically abused them, the attorney general offered his resignation in a statement.
“Serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” he said in the statement. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct … they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time.”
Another woman alleged that Schneiderman slapped her across the face when she rebuffed his advances.
If these allegations are true this man is a monster. Just take a look at a brief recollection by one of his alleged victims as it was published in The New Yorker. It’s truly terrifying:
About four weeks after they became physically involved, Michelle Manning says, Schneiderman grew violent. One night, they were in the bedroom of his Upper West Side apartment, still clothed but getting ready for bed, and lightly baiting each other. As she recalls it, he called her “a whore,” and she talked back. They had both been drinking, and her recollection of their conversation is blurry, but what happened next remains vivid. Schneiderman, she says, backed her up to the edge of his bed.
“All of a sudden, he just slapped me, open-handed and with great force, across the face, landing the blow directly onto my ear,” Manning Barish says. “It was horrendous. It just came out of nowhere. My ear was ringing. I lost my balance and fell backward onto the bed. I sprang up, but at this point there was very little room between the bed and him. I got up to try to shove him back, or take a swing, and he pushed me back down. He then used his body weight to hold me down, and he began to choke me. The choking was very hard. It was really bad. I kicked. In every fibre, I felt I was being beaten by a man.”
She finally freed herself and got back on her feet. “I was crying and in shock,” she says. She recalls shouting, “Are you crazy?” To her astonishment, Schneiderman accused her of scratching him. At one point—she can’t remember if it was at this moment or in a later conversation—he told her, “You know, hitting an officer of the law is a felony.”
Another dirty Democrats falls victim to his own hypocrisy. Schneiderman was a huge anti-Trumper and #metoo pusher. He claimed the President’s treatment of women in the past was deplorable meanwhile he was physically abusing the women in his own life? Yikes.
