Why It's Relevant

Eric Schneiderman, the Attorney General of New York, abruptly resigned from office this week. His resignation came on the heels of accusations that Schneiderman had physically abused and assaulted multiple women. The New Yorker first published the reports, in which four women describe disturbing acts of violence committed against them by Schneiderman during his tenure as Attorney General.

Schneiderman, a member of the Democratic Party, had previously been seen as a champion of women's rights. He was an important figure in the #MeToo movement, leading a lawsuit against The Weinstein Company in the wake of the accusations and public disgrace of founder Harvey Weinstein. Schneiderman has denied the claims of assault.
