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.

In an exposé published by The New Yorker, four women accused Schneiderman of abusing them. "I have not assaulted anyone", Schneiderman said in a statement to the publication. "I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross". Then, she says, he slapped her across the face, twice. This did not happen while we were having sex. "I could not remain silent and encourage other women to be fearless for me". It was completely unexpected and shocking.

Strangulation or an assault that causes a serious physical injury has a five-year window to bring charges.

NY isn't exactly suffering from a shortage of ambitious Democratic politicians looking to make a name for themselves. "It is one of the very basic tenets of BDSM", she explained.

According to Barish's medical records, her doctor later found and removed "dried bloody crust" from her ear.

Though all four admitted to being in a relationship with Schneiderman, none of them agreed to the violence and said he also threatened to kill them if they broke up with him.

Schneiderman, a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, has denied abusing anyone. In a speech delivered just a week ago, he said, "If a woman can not control her body, she is not truly equal". And, in this, again, political pundits learn the lesson that gets drummed into every sportswriter over and over: none of us really know these guys. "It was at first as if he were testing me". They stressed that-contrary to his initial claims that he merely "engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity"-they did not consent to the violence".

Selvaratnam added, "I was scared what he might do if I left him".

"We're going to have public hearings; you guys will be able to come and witness, and I think this is actually a good thing", Heastie told reporters after the latest closed-door meeting on the selection process. "The Women's Caucus supports the appointment of (Singas) as special prosecutor in this case, in order to preserve the public's confidence in this investigation", the Caucus said in a statement released Tuesday.

After Schneiderman's resignation, New York Solicitor General Barbara D. Underwood was appointed as Acting Attorney General, pending a search for a permanent replacement. This isn't the sort of thing that tends to make it into print, but I can not tell you how many times progressive friends and acquaintances (including serious feminists) have told me that after what happened to Hillary Clinton in 2016, Democrats would be foolish to run another woman against Donald Trump in 2020, encouraging the same kind of sexist voter reactions and media coverage that beset HRC. "I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business May 8, 2018".
