New York AG Eric Schneiderman resigns after he’s accused of abusing women

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat who had taken a high-profile role in the fight against sexual misconduct, was allegedly physically violent with four women he was romantically involved with, according to their accounts published Monday in The New Yorker.

Schneiderman said Monday night he would resign as attorney general in the wake of the allegations, which he denied, saying he would be unable to do the job.

The detailed and graphic descriptions of Schneiderman’s allegedly violent relationships, often after heavy drinking, had immediately drawn calls for his resignation, including from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the New York Times reported.
