NY Attorney General Schneiderman (D) resigns in disgrace after allegations of assault and abuse

Prominent Democrat and self professed ‘champion’ of women, the guy who filed a civil suit againt Harvey Weinstein (claiming he’d never seen anything as despicable as Weinstein’s behaviour)- New York state Attorney General, has resigned 3 hours after the New Yorker came out with a disturbing story about four women who have made very credible allegations of his private behavior, which includes hitting, slapping, choking, beating, and spitting on his girlfriends, threatening to kill them if they tell others about it, and calling one of them his ‘brown slave’ and making her call him master.

One former victim told her friends about it after she ended the abusive relationship. “A number of them advised her to keep the story to herself, arguing that Schneiderman was too valuable a politician for the Democrats to lose. She described this response as heartbreaking. And when Schneiderman heard that she had turned against him, she said, he warned her that politics was a tough and personal business, and that she’d better be careful. She told Selvaratnam that she had taken this as a threat.”

Here are a few interesting tidbits:

New York Senator Gillibrand is on the record as saying that Schneiderman ‘is the only candidate for AG who represents the values of New York women… who unequivocally supports a woman’s right to choose.” Incidentally, her father is lobbist and political fixer Doug Rutnik, who was a lobbyist for NXIVM. (after he quit, Ranier sued him and they settled for 100,000. Gillibrand says she knows nothing about NXIVM’s crimes and abuse, that she’d never even heard of them before the recent arrests. However stories about them have been circulating for years, including before her dad started working for them- Forbes and UPI were calling them a cult and accusing them of being a shady pyramid scheme. Also, Nxivm’s biggest financial supporter, Seagram heiress Clare Bronfman, contributed $2,400 to Gillibrand’s 2010 special-election campaign, records show. And the state AG, Schneiderman, was already investigating NXIVM and the investigation had reached the point that he’d sued them!

You may recall the news about actress Allison Mack and self-help guru or con-artist Keith Ranier, both of NXIVM , being arrested on charges of sex trafficking (Including child trafficking) and slavery.

Samantha Bee said he was the ‘one person who could save us from Trump.’

When Education Sec Betsy DeVos ‘Rolled back Title IX protections,’ or insisted that accusers and the accused both have the right to due process and schools may not revoke due process at will, Schneiderman fought back, claiming “Sexual assault survivors, what happened to you is unconscionable. We have your back and we are fighting for you.”

Politico called him the leader of the Trump Resistance.

After New York’s state Health Department gained a lot of negative publicity for brushing off complaints about NXIVM’s ‘brain studies and the branding, which was done by a licensed medical doctor, Danielle Roberts,’ Schneiderman’s AG office began an investigation, in”early March asking a judge to order Bronfman and Porter to turn over their records related to brain-activity and other human behavioral studies, which had been conducted without any apparent oversight.” March 25, the day before NXIVM was to submit documents to the court, Schneiderman suspended the investigation “due to an ongoing federal criminal probe of the organization.”

Incidentally, Schneiderman is also the guy who sued Trump’s university for fraud. From the New Yorker article:

“His emotional state seemed to worsen after the 2016 Presidential election. He had counted on forging an ambitious partnership with a White House led by Hillary Clinton. Instead, the Presidency had gone to Donald Trump. Earlier, Schneiderman’s office had sued Trump University for civil fraud, and Trump had countersued Schneiderman personally.”

Back in 2013, Trump tweeted that Weiner and Spitzer were both gone, but that Schneiderman was worse. If Trump knew this, so did others. Four former girlfriends over several years, women who were activists for feminist causes, who who socially influential and involved on the left, women with friends in high places in New York politics, knew about it for years. They told their friends. These people knew- I’m not just talking about his victims- I do understand the long process it takes to come to terms with that kind of beating, emotional and physical. I understand the fear and self-doubt, and the shame and all that confusion. But the victims told others. Somehow, Trump knew that Schneiderman was worse than Weiner and Spitzer- and he said so five years ago. But people who also must have known worked for him, promoted him, and kept silent.

    The mental gymnastics required to protect a person from the ramifications of his abusive behavior toward women because he is an important politician and and advocate for women! It’s extraordinary.
