They said Mr. Schneiderman was drinking heavily at the time of the attacks.

Mr. Schneiderman, over the past year, has positioned himself at the vanguard of legal challenges by state attorneys general to the Trump administration's efforts to roll back regulation - especially environmental rules.

"In recent months, we've begun a long-overdue reckoning with our culture of violence and silence", Schneiderman said in his remarks at the November 28 press conference.

Soon after that, Schneiderman issued a denial, saying the accusations stemmed from consensual role-playing.

Last month, the New Yorker won a joint Pulitzer Prize with the New York Times for its reporting on sexual harassment in Hollywood.

"When you are dealing with a person who has a lot of power in society, those stakes can feel so high and it can feel that much harder to come forward and speak out", Goldsmith said, adding that the claims made by the women accusing Schneiderman fit a typical pattern of domestic abuse. "In one case, a woman wasn't even in a relationship at all with him".

In announcing his resignation, Schneiderman he would step down at the end of business Tuesday. Weinstein denies any non-consensual sex.

Cuomo, Vance, Nassau County DA Madeline Singas and her Suffolk counterpart, Tim Sini, will put on a show of unity over who gets to try to nail Schneiderman during a news conference at 2 p.m. Thursday at Cuomo's Manhattan office.

Cuomo also directed Singas to investigate whether Schneiderman may have used his staff and office resources to "facilitate alleged abusive liaisons referenced in the article".

A third woman, Tanya Selvaratnam asserted that Schneiderman repeatedly slapped her and spat on her during sex without her consent. Cuomo brought up Vance's lack of response to investigate abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein despite one of the victim's having a recorded apology from Weinstein for the incident.

The Manhattan and Long Island district attorneys' offices said they had opened investigations into the matter. The documents can be mailed to the New York State Assembly, Capitol Building Room 347, Albany, NY 12248.

Around four weeks after the pair became involved with one another, Manning Barish alleges Schneiderman hit her while they were alone in his bedroom, causing her to lose her balance and fall onto the bed.

Raised in New Jersey, Underwood earned an undergraduate degree from Harvard in 1966 and a law degree from Georgetown in 1969.

And in 1996, Gov. George Pataki appointed Attorney General Dennis Vacco as a special prosecutor to pursue charges against an ex-convict charged with killing a city police officer after Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson refused to seek the death penalty. That's why leaders of women's groups are still trying to make sense of the allegations that he was a serial domestic violence abuser.

"What is needed in Albany today is a person with the clarity of objective, and the understanding of government, that I will bring to the Office of Attorney General". "The courageous women who chose to come forward deserve swift and definitive justice in this matter".
