New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned on Monday (May 7) after allegations of physical abuse by four women were reported in an article in the New Yorker magazine.

Governor Andrew Cuomo called for Schneiderman’s resignation within hours of the article’s publication.

“In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”

Schneiderman said on Monday in response to the New Yorker article in which four women were quoted as saying he physically abused them, that he has “not assaulted anyone.”

“In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity,” Schneiderman said in a statement issued by public relations firm Stu Loeser & Co.

“I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is I line I would not cross.” Schneiderman’s office referred calls for comment to Loeser’s office.

In the article published late on Monday, the New Yorker reported that four women who said they had had romantic relationships or encounters with Schneiderman said they had been “subjected to nonconsensual physical violence.”
