I really wonder if as these guys are saying this shit they're secretlt sweating awaiting the day it wipes them out, or if they're so delusional and egomaniacal that they legitimately don't even make the connection and refuse to allow themselves to think about their own actions.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/eric-schneiderman-resigns_us_5af0e552e4b041fd2d2a10b2?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000046&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=women_fb&utm_campaign=hp_fb_pages

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) announced his resignation on Monday, just hours after a shocking report in The New Yorker detailed four of his former romantic partners’ accusations of physical abuse.

“It has been my great honor and privilege to serve as Attorney General for the people of the State of New York,” Schneiderman said in a statement late Monday. “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me. While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time.”

He said he would officially resign at the close of business on Tuesday.

On Monday, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam went on the record to say that Schneiderman, 63, “repeatedly hit them, often after drinking, frequently in bed and never with their consent.” In one instance, Manning Barish said Schneiderman told her that “if you ever left me, I’d kill you.”

Two other women, quoted anonymously, had similarly troubling allegations of abuse.

Shortly after the report came out, Schneiderman tried to downplay the accusations.

“In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity,” he said in a statement. “I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in nonconsensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.” 

But just hours later, Schneiderman’s allies called on him to step aside, including New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, both Democrats.

“My personal opinion is that, given the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article, I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve as attorney general,” Cuomo said shortly before Schneiderman’s resignation.

Schneiderman has long championed women’s causes and has been a vocal supporter of the Me Too movement. One of his more notable actions as a state senator involved legislation to protect women from domestic abuse, including his sponsorship of the Anti-Strangulation Act in 2010. 

Manning Barish and Selvaratnam each told The New Yorker that Schneiderman had choked and slapped them, and said they’d sought medical help during or shortly after their relationships. At one point, Manning Barish said, Schneiderman told her “I am the law.” She said that once after slapping and choking her, Schneiderman told her that “hitting an officer of the law is a felony.”

As New York’s senior law enforcement official, Schneiderman took large steps to combat President Donald Trump’s agenda, including pushing to change state law so any Trump aides can be tried for criminal acts they’ve committed in New York even if they have been given a presidential pardon. His office also filed a suit against film producer Harvey Weinstein in February, alleging that Weinstein had sexually harassed women for years.

Schneiderman had been running for re-election in 2018 for what would have been his third term.

Who saw this coming?  Why, Donald Trump!  From 2013:
 
"Weiner is gone, Spitzer is gone - next will be lightweight A.G. Eric Schneiderman. Is he a crook? Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner"
 
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/377751074628988929
 
------------------------------------------------------
 
What did the rest of the #MeToo crowd, those proud and loud feminists tell these women when they heard the AG had physically and sexually assaulted them?  Take one for the team, kiddo! 
 
“After the former girlfriend ended the relationship, she told several friends about the abuse. 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.”
In short, numerous people appear to know about Schneiderman’s abusive tendencies but chose not to act out of fear or naked political ambition.

Schneidermann is a notorious ballbuster. But. Do you think that AG in a big city, where you crack down on folks/corporations/busineses with huge money, puts one more prone to retribution by the power money?
Does the AG of Dubuque Iowa or Carson City, NV have former prostitute dalliances coming forth to take them down? The NY AG, whoever they may be, pisses off a lot of people that have $$ leverage, and you wonder if eventually, payback is a bitch.

When you're in that position and ypu're saying the things he was saying, your house better be in order or you get exactly what you deserve.  Same thing with Elliot Spitzer.  I don't give a damn that he has to pay for sex, but when you're making it a priority to clean up exactly the type of corruption you're involved in, not only is it brutal hypocrisy but it also makes you ripe for blackmail.  If you're fucking prostitutes, your platform better be that you want to legalize prostitution, which should be everyone's platform anyway.  This is what Democrats say about Trump and his own blackmail issues, and it works both ways.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/05/08/politics/schneiderman-hubris/index.html

What really separates the Eric Schneiderman #MeToo scandal from the rest of them is the truly astounding hypocrisy of it all.

Given what we've learned from reporting about the Democratic attorney general in The New Yorker, that's not even a very subjective statement. That the man taking the lead in prosecuting a civil case against Harvey Weinstein would himself stand accused of abusing women is... well... unbelievable. Schneiderman may now face prosecution himself, according to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
    The fact that women Schneiderman is accused of striking felt he would use his office -- the same office he pledged to use against Weinstein and President Donald Trump -- against them takes the hypocrisy to disturbing levels. Indeed, the picture of the hard-charging lawman standing up for women does not square with the secretly abusive and controlling boyfriend described in the magazine.

    This passage from The New Yorker, in which Schneiderman's former girlfriend Michelle Manning Barish discusses him, paints a picture of a man with power who is not afraid to use it.

    Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow write in the magazine:

    Since the #MeToo movement began, Manning Barish has been active on social-media platforms, cheering on women who have spoken out, including those whose accusations prompted the resignation of the Minnesota senator Al Franken, a widely admired Democrat. Once, she made an oblique reference to Schneiderman on social media, in connection with a political issue. He called her and, in a tone that she describes as "nasty," said, "Don't ever write about me. You don't want to do that." Manning Barish says that she took his remarks as a threat, just as she took seriously a comment that he'd once made after she objected to him "yanking" her across a street. She recalls saying to him, "Jaywalking is against the law," and him responding, "I am the law." Manning Barish says, "If there is a sentence that sums him up, it's that."


    The passage suggests a number of very disturbing things, including that Schneiderman knew he had something to hide. He was pursuing Weinstein and putting Trump on notice all while he knew there were abuse allegations against him. It also suggests that Schneiderman felt his own position was so important that he might be willing to use it to keep his accusers quiet. That's what makes his sudden downfall so incredible to so many people.

    The prosecutor with something to hide is something out of a pulpy crime novel. The prosecutor with this to hide at this time in US history is enough to be nauseating even though Schneiderman resigned from his office within hours of the report posting. Read Chris Cillizza's pieceTuesday on the difference between politicians who resign quickly and those who hang on after reports of alleged abuse, from President Donald Trump and Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens to former President Bill Clinton.

    The difference between someone like Trump and someone like Schneiderman is that Trump as publicly identified with men even as the #MeToo movement uncovers the difficulties women have faced.

    When staff secretary Rob Porter and speechwriter David Sorenson were both forced out of the White House following accusations of domestic abuse, Trump questioned the allegations.

    "Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation," Trump tweeted. "Some are true and some are false. Some are old and some are new. There is no recovery for someone falsely accused - life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?"

    Last November, when multiple women said Alabama US Senate candidate Roy Moore had tried to seduce them as young women, Trump sided with Moore, pointing out that the candidate denied the allegations.

    "He says it didn't happen," the President told reporters. "You have to listen to him, also."

    Give Trump points for consistency. Schneiderman was using his office to try to go after rape suspect Harvey Weinstein while privately telling women he'd allegedly abused that he'd use his office against them. That's a special brand of hubris. Republicans have quickly pointed out this hypocrisy, and rightly so. Of course, one enormous difference is that Moore stayed in that Senate fight. The White House was trying to make him a senator even after the allegations about his history with young women came out.

    That's not unlike Trump going after former Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, who resigned his seat after allegations of unwanted and forcible kissing by multiple women.

    He believed the accusers against Franken, his political rival, in other words, but wanted to believe Moore, his political ally. Politics should probably not even feature in this debate, but the evidence now is that politics can feed it.

    There's hypocrisy. There's hubris. And then there's this.

    There was nothing really concrete against Moore. I did believe that these allegations had legs. Franken is on camera being a disgusting creep. There was nothing questionable about that.

    If anything, these scandals prove that there is plenty of bottom in the swamp.

    It very well might not.  Spitzer still makes the rounds on lots of shows and gets paid well for his media appearances and remains on the Board of Directors of several companies.  If anything, his life is cushier than ever.  He works less to get paid tons.  Anthony Weiner also was on the same path after he fucked up once, then twice.  It took repeated and monumental screw-ups (and criminal behavior involving an underage girl) before he stopped getting invited places for major dollars.  They literally had to put him in jail to get him to stop doing liberal talk shows.  The hypocrisy on both sides is through the roof of course, but for Democrats in particular given their agenda, is absolutely stunning how they'll keep bringing these guys around to spew liberal talking points despite being national disgraces.  I would not at all be shocked if Schneiderman "repents" and plans his comeback within 2 years, and winds up on "Hardball" bashing Republicans again.  They know no shame. If you call a liberal out on this, he will of course respond with "But the pussy-grabber!  But Roy Moore!"  Just like Republicans are still bitching about Bill Clinton 20 years later.  They're all horrible, disgusting human beings and you all deserve the government you have.

    S&M is generally a consensual thing, it sounds like this guy was unexpectedly belting these women in the head because he and only he got off on it.  And let's not forget the fact that he continually referred to a Sri Lanken girlfriend as his "brown slave".  There are now reports that a fifth women has been interviewed and tells a similar story of abuse.

    From one of my Bitcoin groups:

    "Do you guys remember like two weeks back when New York's Attorney General Schneiderman launched an inquiry into cryptocurrency “exchanges”?

    I wonder how that's going..."

    LOL.  Asshole.

    Going back and performing those same acts multiple times would lead to it being consensual in most times except for this new era that we live in where either common sense is out the window or females brains can revert back into being children whenever it suits them. 
    And don't worry i have no doubt it will be 20 women who come out with similar stories when a guy has a sexual perversions that are not the norm he opens himself up to be taken advantage , so when Gloria Allred or her daughter jump abroad we will see the number jump up even more.
