Planned Parenthood pushes back on Kellyanne Conway's criticism of Eric Schneiderman

Farrow on Schneiderman This was not role-play

She also has considerable credentials, arguing 20 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Several women's groups that had supported Mr. Schneiderman, including the National Institute for Reproductive Health and the NY branch of the National Organization for Women, expressed shock and dismay.

As a state senator before getting elected attorney general, Schneiderman chaired an inquiry that led to a colleague's expulsion over a domestic-violence conviction.

Schneiderman, who has spoken out against sexual misconduct and filed a suit against Harvey Weinstein, had been accused of enacting "nonconsensual physical violence" against four women, as reported by The New Yorker.

Planned Parenthood Action, the political arm of the nation's largest abortion provider, told White House advisor Kellyanne Conway to delete her Twitter account Monday after she called out disgraced New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman over horrific abuse allegations.

She noted that there's an added stigma of violence that occurs during sex: Women often feel as though they can't say anything in the moment and are embarrassed later by what happened.

However, there's one player that the Portuguese is desperate to keep a hold although it appears his mind is not set for changing. In my squad, I have some players where I would like to have better than what I have.

Schneiderman had been a vocal public supporter of the #MeToo movement in the past and was endorsed by the National Organization for Women's NY branch during the 2010 election.

"It was upsetting to see, so the allegation that this was role-playing, you know, is not consistent with what these women said", Farrow said.

He later announced his resignation. "I thought it was a very powerful and damning statement of facts".

The unrest among the prosecutors was sparked by Cuomo's use of state Executive Law to remove Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. and appoint Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas "to investigate, and if warranted, prosecute, any and all matters concerning the public allegations against Mr. Schneiderman".

Singas is the former head of the Special Victims Bureau at the Nassau district attorney's office.

On Wednesday, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced plans to begin interviews on Tuesday for a new attorney general to serve out the rest of Schneiderman's term.

What is so confounding to Giglio is that Schneiderman embraced the #MeToo movement and ordered an investigation into accusations against Harvey Weinstein as more women came forward past year to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Samantha Bee and her "Full Frontal" team are attempting to change their stance after previously praising former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as a "superhero".

Davis went on to make clear that the governor's office was still asking the attorney general's office to investigate the relationship between the Manhattan DA and the city's police department in the handling of sex crimes.

The state Constitution requires the Legislature to fill vacancies.

"Confronted with the reality of a conflict, we took action to ensure both the integrity of the investigation and the public's confidence in the process", Davis said. Todd Kaminsky (D-Long Beach), former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, and perennial candidate Zephyr Teachout.
