Mayor de Blasio Wants Disgraced State AG to Face Criminal Charges Following Assault Claims

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for disgraced state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to face criminal charges after he was accused Monday of assaulting at least four women. 

"Based on what I've read, yes," said the mayor, who urged any victims of abuse at the hands of the soon-to-be-gone New York attorney general to meet with investigators.

"The most important thing is that there is a fast and thorough investigation," said de Blasio. "... What came out (Monday) last night could not be more troubling and unacceptable."

Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said he spoke Tuesday morning with Vance, and they agreed to send investigators to speak with the victims identified in the article.

The NY AG agreed to resign effective the end of the business day Tuesday (May 8).

He is accused of acting violently towards four women - two who spoke on the record - as part of a bombshell New Yorker piece entitled "The Accuse Allegations That Brought Down New York's Attorney General".

One of the accusers relayed how Schneiderman had slapped her and treated her like his sex slave.

“Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam said.

“He started calling me his ‘brown slave’ and demanding that I repeat that I was ‘his property.’”

Selvaratnam said, “The slaps started after we’d gotten to know each other.

“It was at first as if he were testing me. Then it got stronger and harder. It wasn’t consensual. This wasn’t sexual playacting. This was abusive, demeaning, threatening behavior.”

It was just two years ago that Scheiderman began cracking down on Daily Fantasy Sports businesses, requiring that the two largest firms - DraftKings and FanDuel - pay hefty fines.

Schneiderman’s office had also accused the two companies of misleading players about potential winnings advertisements and marketing material. Tuesday’s settlement resolves those claims.

His actions resulted in a snowballing affect that caused the loss of significant sports league sponsorships with the two firms while nearly every smaller DFS company collapsed.
