Planned Parenthood pushes back on Kellyanne Conway's criticism of Eric Schneiderman

Poll: Do you agree with Eric Schneiderman's resignation?

"Now, Schneiderman was a guest on my show, so this is a little complicated for me to talk about", said Bee, in reference to her calling him "a hero" for standing up to "democracy's nemesis" in a November broadcast.

Vance also said that there was no potential conflict with his office investigating the abuse allegations against Schneiderman once he resigned as attorney general on Monday night. Two of the women said that Schneiderman spit on, choked and repeatedly slapped them across the face.

"Given that tweet, it seems that Conway has given a license to remind people that she's been less eager to comment on another powerful man who said it on tape that he kisses and grabs women without consent", Brzezinski said, referencing the Access Hollywood tape that was widely publicized before the 2016 presidential election.

Several women's groups say they feel "betrayed".

The state Senate's Republican women's caucus earlier Wednesday called for Schneiderman to donate all his remaining campaign funds to anti-domestic violence programs. Contradicting his accusers, he characterized his behavior as "role-playing and other consensual sexual activity". Schneiderman's office was informed of Fitchett's innocence by a security guard for the Choices Women's Medical Clinic (Choices) in the town of Jamaica, NY before he even brought the lawsuit.

But not in the eyes of the public.

A former member of the Women's Caucus, New York City Public Advocate Letitia James, is considered to be a leading candidate to replace Schneiderman.

"I think that while this (Schneiderman abuse case) is not quite the same circumstances as the incident back in the '90s involving the cop homicide, the governor clearly has the authority to do this", Vacco said. I will be asking an appropriate New York District Attorney to commence an immediate investigation, and proceed as the facts merit.

Madeline Singas, the Nassau County district attorney, was tapped by Cuomo.

"The Senate can not turn a blind eye to an act of domestic violence", declared Schneiderman, who went on to co-author a law that made choking someone a crime of its own.

The current investigation of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance over his handling of a sexual assault allegation against producer Harvey Weinstein highlights the sea change facing Schneiderman.

Barbara D. Underwood was appointed New York Solicitor General in January 2007. We recommend that they avoid the appearance of politics by keeping Underwood until the end of the year or appoint some other nonpolitical choice.

Names floated May 8 included former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, celebrated for his efforts to fight corruption in state government, and law professor Zephyr Teachout, who posted a surprisingly strong showing with her challenge to Mr. Cuomo in the 2014 primary.

"This is a very important position, and this is a highly charged situation", said Cuomo.

The selection process as described by Heastie would be an unusually open procedure for such a major exercise of power in Albany, where most negotiations are behind closed doors and most legislation is preordained well before it gets to floor debate.

The stakes couldn't be higher.
