Double Standard? Planned Parenthood Slams Kellyanne Conway for Calling Out Schneiderman

  • Kellyanne Conway on New York attorney general's resignation: 'Gotcha'

If history is any guide, Schneiderman's replacement will likely view the Attorney General's office as a vehicle for generating headlines and advancing progressive causes, much as Gov. Andrew Cuomo and former Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who was also felled by scandal, once did.

Maloney is set to compete this fall with Orange County Legislator Jim O'Donnell, a Goshen Republican, for New York's 18th Congressional District seat.

The allegations, which Schneiderman contests but which led him to resign, emerged Monday in an article in The New Yorker, a publication he hailed just last month for reporting on Weinstein and starting a "critical national reckoning" on sexual misconduct by powerful men.

The New Yorker story described two of Schneiderman's ex-girlfriends claims that the AG - who held himself out as an advocate for women's rights in the wake of the #MeToo movement - allegedly slapped, choked and emotionally abused them without consent. The Manhattan District Attorney's Office said it has launched a probe into the alleged abuse.

Heastie said Wednesday that Underwood will be invited to submit a resume and seek the Legislature's appointment.

His office has given no indication the course there is changing.

The company that operates out of Reading town centre is launching a new Royal Express for Green Line routes 702 and 703. Meanwhile, Ms Markle will not have a maid of honour and all of her bridesmaids and pageboys will be children.

The story continued, "To her astonishment, Schneiderman accused her of scratching him". And Trump has spared no counterattacks against Schneiderman. Voters will decide who'll be the state's new top prosecutor on Election Day.

"What is needed in Albany today is a person with the clarity of goal, and the understanding of government, that I will bring to the Office of Attorney General". After all that has happened in Albany, I don't think I can be shocked, then I'm shocked again. "They haven't lost any of the lawyers who are working on the cases". The company has fought the release of documents to both ny and MA in court, arguing the inquires are violating its free-speech rights.

The state district attorneys association had criticized and internally debated the constitutionality of Cuomo's 2015 order, but voted a year ago not to file a motion in support of a court petition filed by Rensselaer County District Attorney Joel E. Abelove challenging Cuomo's action.

That upper chamber complicates matters. The State Senate and State Assembly will meet in joint session to choose a successor, which means that Assembly Democrats, who have the largest caucus, will effectively make the selection. However, one member, Sen. In February, he led the Supreme Court brief filed by 17 states' attorney generals supporting California's FACT Act requiring crisis pregnancy centers to post a multilingual signage notifying women where they can get free or low-priced abortions.

Underwood is unlikely to deviate from the anti-fossil fuel direction that the attorney general's office adopted during Schneiderman's tenure. Fueled by anger against Trump, the energized Democratic base may make it hard for a Republican attorney general candidate to pull an upset win in a state Hillary Clinton carried by more than 22 points in 2016.

Presidential counsellor Kellyanne Conway posted a tweet from Mr Schneiderman in which he says he will continue to remind Mr Trump that no-one is above the law.
