Eric Schneidermanís Inevitable Fall (open secret to Dems)
City Journal ^ | 5/8/2018 | Seth Barron

Posted on 05/08/2018 6:40:10 PM PDT by RightGeek

The New York attorney general’s dark-side personal life was an open secret in Democratic Party circles.

New York State attorney general Eric Schneiderman has resigned, just hours after it was reported that he had been accused of violent assaults on women he had dated. These allegations, which include threats that Schneiderman made to stalk and kill the women if they told on him, came as a shock—except to anyone who has followed his career in politics. Schneiderman’s louche ethics have been well known. You didn’t need an “in” at Albany watering holes; just reading the newspapers would have told you plenty.

In 2010, when Schneiderman first ran for statewide office, he was involved in a hit-and-run accident. Then a state senator, he claimed to have been a passenger in his own car when his 22-year-old staffer Rachel Kagan—niece of Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan—smashed into a parked car and drove away, after causing $3,000 worth of damage. A passerby witnessed the crash and wrote down Schneiderman’s license plate. Schneiderman later told the owner of the parked car that he “disciplined the staffer,” and offered to pay for the damage, though his office insisted that it was “outrageous” to call the incident a hit-and-run.

...

But Schneiderman was such an exemplar of a progressive-activist hero—suing Exxon, working in concert with Robert Mueller to obtain pardon-proof convictions against Trump associates, speaking at the Women’s March—that people who probably knew better looked away from evidence of his wrongdoing.

Many of the things I’ve read suggest his core problem may be alcoholism.
In this one, what are the chances a female junior staffer was driving his car?

Trump on Eric Schneiderman in 2013 tweet: ‘Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner’.

The Stormy Daniels lies were set up to hurt Trump with his wife, women voters, and evangelicals. I believe he did NOT soil himself with that slut, as he is a germaphobe about doorknobs etc.

Funny thing that now a DEM is in the headlines for his disgusting violent sexual crimes.

Embarrassing that he patted himself on the back for being pious and encouraging to the feminist liars earlier!

Goes along with my theory that some Dem young men are bs artists about how women are just as good as men and feminist set asides and promotions over better qualified men are just fine with them. They were lying.

Women said all along: Men are only after one thing. You can’t trust a man. Men are all two timers. etc.

I wonder if he was involved in a coven of Pedophiles, Hebephiles or Ephebophiles? That may explain why this didn’t come up sooner.

Hypocrites, indeed. If it was well known, why was it not well reported? If the ‘Rats didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards at all.

In 1972 just out of high school Schneiderman got a job working at an abortion clinic in D.C. He’s soulless and vile.

As long as the sacred liberal God Moloch is honored with baby sacrifice anything goes with ones desire of perversion. Just don't get caught and keep it on the down low.

Gillibrand is one of the dimmest bulbs in the Senate and Chucks puppet.

It’s outrageous to call a hit and run a hit and run?

How can even a liberal s-hole rationalize that?

They new it all along including Cuomo. That is why it only took 3 hours to can his butt. Also Cuomo saw him as a rising star and wanted to take him out. Cuomo wants to run for President.

What headlines? This is a lone story in a small publication. It’s to give the media cover for not reporting it.
