Statement on Attorney General Eric Schneiderman

“No matter the who, no matter when, no matter what we should believe people who come forward with their experiences of sexual assault or misconduct. No one is above the law especially those who are supposed to enforce it. NYSYD supports the Governor Andrew Cuomo and Speaker Johnson’s ask of the Attorney General to resign. The Executive Board is unanimous in asking Schniederman to resign immediately.”

Update: Eric Schneiderman has resigned as the Attorney General of New York State.
