Cuomo Orders Special Prosecutor For Schneiderman

The New York Daily News reports:

The public dismantling of ex-state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman took less than 24 hours, a fast and freaky plunge from powerful prosecutor to potential perp walk. Schneiderman’s dramatic fall from grace was capped off by Gov. Cuomo’s appointment late Tuesday of a special prosecutor to investigate allegations that the state’s former top lawman physically assaulted four women.

Cuomo, who was among the first to call on Schneiderman to resign, tapped Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas for the job. Singas “will investigate, and if warranted, prosecute, any and all matters concerning the public allegations against Mr. Schneiderman, as reflected in The New Yorker article dated May 7, 2018, titled ‘Four Women Accuse New York’s Attorney General of Physical Abuse,'” Cuomo said in a letter.
