  • Four women accuse Schneiderman of sexual harassment abuse

MacCallum recalled that the some of the previously-reported alleged victims told of Schneiderman "hitting them so hard in the head by the eyes that they had to go to physicians".

Former state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was an outspoken advocate for the #MeToo movement and a staunch proponent of women's rights.

"I am honored to serve the people of NY as acting attorney general", Underwood said. Some also described him as a heavy drinker.

Schneiderman's office released a statement from his former wife, Jennifer Cunningham, who said she had known him "for almost 35 years as a husband, father and friend".

In a report published by the New Yorker on Monday, two women who were romantically involved with Schneiderman at separate times between 2013 and 2017, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, accused him of slapping them across the ear and face and choking them without their consent.

It was all the fallout of four women who have had romantic relationships with Schneiderman - whose office has taken on a high-profile role in the fight against sexual misconduct - accusing him of physically abusing them. The Associated Press is identifying the women because they agreed to tell their stories publicly.

Schneiderman, who ironically filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein in the wake of multiple sexual harassment accusations, resigned from office four hours after the news broke in a story for The New Yorker.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement to The Sun: "States are protecting their people, values and economy, and that will continue as leaders throughout the country continue to emerge to resist and persist".

"I have not assaulted anyone".

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

Authorities in NY will investigate Schneiderman, who was until Tuesday the state's top law enforcement officer.

"Sen. Warren must immediately do the right thing and return, or donate to an appropriate non-profit, all the donations raised for her campaign by Eric Schneiderman", Kingston said in a written statement Tuesday. "I could not remain silent and encourage women to be courageous for me".

"If a woman can't control her own body, she isn't truly free", Schneiderman said on November 2, 2017, while joining a lawsuit to protect women's access to birth control.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has opened a probe into the allegations, the office said in a statement.

Schneiderman denied the allegations, saying he was engaged in consensual role-playing. "I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross", he wrote in a statement to the New Yorker.

- She has made the teaching rounds at several prominent New York City universities, including stints as a visiting professor at New York University School of Law and adjunct professor at Brooklyn Law School.

"I think a qualified woman would be great, especially in this time", said Cuomo.

Schneiderman also was trying to build criminal cases against former Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn in case the president pardoned them or Robert Mueller's special investigation was halted. President Trump could pardon himself and his associates, but presidents have no pardon power over state charges.
