Schneiderman at the time didn't deny the allegations, but implied in an initial statement his conduct was either welcomed or was not as the women described.Michelle Manning Barish, a Democratic activist and writer, said Schneiderman became controlling and abusive - slapping her hard across the face and choking her - soon after they started dating in mid-2013.
Letitia James was elected to succeed Schneiderman Tuesday.
She will take over the post from Interim Attorney General Barbara Underwood, who was appointed to serve out the remainder of Schneiderman's second term, through Dec.

I could not remain silent and encourage other women to be brave for me.
Update: Three hours after the publication of this story, Schneiderman resigned from his position.
As New York State’s highest-ranking law-enforcement officer, Schneiderman, who is sixty-three, has used his authority to take legal action against the disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, and to demand greater compensation for the victims of Weinstein’s alleged sexual crimes.
Last month, when the and this magazine were awarded a joint Pulitzer Prize for coverage of sexual harassment, Schneiderman issued a congratulatory tweet, praising “the brave women and men who spoke up about the sexual harassment they had endured at the hands of powerful men.” Without these women, he noted, “there would not be the critical national reckoning under way.”Now Schneiderman is facing a reckoning of his own.
"This is a victory for all women but we need more than words," she said.
