NY Attorney General Schneiderman Is Resigning

(New York, NY)  --  New York  Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is resigning amid accusations he  physically assaulted four women.  

In a statement hours after the  allegations were made in "The New Yorker" yesterday, Schneiderman noted  that he "strongly" contests the claims.  Two of the women claim  Schneiderman choked and slapped them.  They reportedly had to get  medical attention for their injuries.  All four women said the abuse  happened while they were romantically involved with Schneiderman. 

 In an  earlier statement, Schneiderman, a Democrat,  denied the accusations, saying he's  never assaulted anyone.  However, he said he has "engaged in  role-playing and other consensual sexual activity."
