Double Standard? Planned Parenthood Slams Kellyanne Conway for Calling Out Schneiderman

Manhattan attorney Manny Alicandro (al-leh-KAN'-droh), speaking Tuesday on WNYM radio, said there must have been "enablers" who kept quiet about allegations that Schneiderman had physically abused four women during what were supposed to be romantic encounters.

The New York State Legislature is now tasked with finding an interim to replace Schneiderman.

Underwood has worked in the District Attorneys' offices of three New York City counties and was the counsel and chief assistant in the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney's office.

Although Schneiderman denied the allegations of physical abuse, he immediately resigned within hours of the article's publication.

"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.


Bee then addressed Scheiderman's work on behalf of the domestic abuse of women and the prosecution of Harvey Weinstein, who faces dozens of sexual abuse and harassment accusations.

Schneiderman admits that the allegations would make it impossible for him to continue in his job.

Cuomo said he appointed the special prosecutor in part to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest with the attorney general's office, which is now investigating the actions of the Manhattan district attorney's office and the New York Police Department in their handling of the Weinstein sex allegations. I have not assaulted anyone.

Maloney is set to compete this fall with Orange County Legislator Jim O'Donnell, a Goshen Republican, for New York's 18th Congressional District seat.

New York's governor, Andrew Cuomo, appointed Madeline Singas as special prosecutor, taking the case away from Manhattan district attorney's office run by Cyrus Vance Jr. citing "a whiff of conflict". "I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross".


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

Jennifer Cunningham, Mr Schneiderman's ex-wife, released a statement on Monday saying: "I've known Eric for almost 35 years as a husband, father, and friend".

"I think this is actually a good thing", said Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie. "But, back then, I believed that it was a one-time incident. His pattern of using his position to control and abuse women is shocking and demands an investigation", said Staver.

Ms. Selvaratnam, a dark-skinned woman from Sri Lanka, told the magazine, "Sometimes, he'd tell me to call him Master, and he'd slap me until I did...he started calling me his "brown slave" and demanding that I repeat that I was 'his property'". James also has the backing of the Working Families Party.

"This was someone who many of us held up as a supporter and champion of the fight against gender violence", said Judy Harris Kluger, executive director of Sanctuary for Families, which aids domestic violence victims.
