Rep. Maloney exploring potential run for attorney general

Dozens of names have been floated among lawmakers as they set up a vetting process to replace Schneiderman, who abruptly announced his resignation Monday after The New Yorker detailed allegations from four women who say the Democrat physically abused them.

Cuomo, Vance, Nassau County DA Madeline Singas and her Suffolk counterpart, Tim Sini, will put on a show of unity over who gets to try to nail Schneiderman during a news conference at 2 p.m. Thursday at Cuomo's Manhattan office.

The allegations forced Schneiderman to resign.

The governor of NY is appointing a special prosecutor to look into all claims, including whether Schneiderman used "staff or office resources" to keep the alleged victims quiet.

Things aren't looking too good for the New York State Attorney General.

Four women, who were all in a relationship with Schneiderman when the alleged actions took place, said Schneiderman would regularly hit and threaten them.

In 2015, Mr. Schneiderman's office opened an investigation into the mortgage practices of Caliber Home Loans, a fast-growing lender, but has said nothing about the inquiry since then.

Fourth woman: A prominent lawyer, says Mr Schneiderman slapped her with force after she rebuffed his advances.

If the state Legislature appoints a candidate, it wouldn't supersede the election. Singas is the former head of the Special Victims' Bureau at the Nassau County District Attorney's Office and the founding member of the Domestic Violence Bureau at the Queens County District Attorney's Office.

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

The petition by Abelove was thrown out and he was later indicted by Schneiderman's office on charges that he lied to a grand jury about his handling of a fatal police shooting in Troy.

For Vance, the fact that there is zero overlap between the Weinstein investigation and any investigation into Schneiderman's actions-"they involve entirely separate claims of assault, involving entirely separate parties"-and that the fact one of the supposedly conflicted parties, Schneiderman, is no longer in a position to be conflicted, there is simply no conflict".

He is now facing a criminal investigation by a special prosecutor appointed by the governor.

In 1996, Gov. George Pataki removed Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson from a cop-killer case after Johnson pledged that he would not enforce the death penalty.

Three years ago, he opened an investigation with the MA attorney general into whether Exxon Mobil deliberately misled the public and investors about the impact of climate change. Besides choking and slapping the women without their consent, Schneiderman also allegedly threatened them if they attempted to leave him or speak out against him.

"Charging and jurisdictional decision making should be left to independent prosecutors who are answerable to their local constituents", Vance wrote.

In the November 2017 segment, Schneiderman is turned into "Schneider-Man" and Bee proclaims, "You are a superhero!" "Cuomo has taken that off the table".
