In an unexpected turn of events, Eric Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general, has been accused of sexual harassment.
Four women have spoken out in an interview with The New Yorker.
The women alleged that he choked, slapped, and beat them during sex.
Schneiderman said in a statement: “In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity. I have not assaulted anyone. I have never engaged in non-consensual sex, which is a line I would not cross.”
In a statement, Schneiderman ex-wife, Jennifer Cunningham said, that the allegations against Schneiderman are unbelievable.
“These allegations are completely inconsistent with with the man I know, who has always been someone of the highest character, outstanding values, and loving father.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said that no one is “above the law,” and asked that Schneiderman submit his resignation immediately.
