Hours After Schneiderman Falls, Busy Day At The Capitol

May 8, 2018

Facing allegations that he assaulted four women, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will resign at the close of business today. The second-term Democrat announced that he would step down Monday night — just hours after The New Yorker published a piece outlining the graphic allegations. Lawmakers, who have the power to name a replacement to the office, have been meeting today at the capitol in Albany. Capitol Correspondent Karen DeWitt says there was no indication that the former state Senator could be part of the #MeToo reckoning until last night.
