New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman abruptly resigned Monday night after The New Yorker published accusations by four women that he physically assaulted them. Schneiderman, a Democrat, was an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and a prominent voice in the #MeToo movement raising awareness of sexual harassment in the workplace. In a brief statement, Schneiderman, 63, denied the accusations but said they would prevent him from carrying out his duties.
