Eric Schneiderman quit hours after four women publicly accused him of physical abuse. The attorney general, who was up for re-election this year, admitted to “role-playing and other consensual sexual activity,” but denied claims of non-consensual violence and death threats. Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand were among those who called for his resignation after the story broke. Schneiderman was known as an advocate for women’s rights, seeking to crack down on domestic violence and filing a civil suit against Harvey Weinstein earlier this year.
