New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman quits amid abuse reports

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has resigned following allegations of assault by four women.

The resignation came after the New Yorker magazine published a report quoting the women who accused Mr Schneiderman, 63, of hitting them.

Two identified themselves as former girlfriends of his.

Mr Schneiderman - who contests the allegations - has been a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment.

"In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity," he said in an initial statement on Monday. "I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross."

 


He later said he "strongly contests" the allegations but would step down.

"While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office's work at this critical time," he said.


New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had called for Mr Schneiderman's resignation, following the reports.

"No-one is above the law, including New York's top legal officer," he said. "I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve as attorney general."

Mr Cuomo said he would ask a prosecutor to investigate the allegations.
