Singas announced her appointment via Twitter late Tuesday night.

"While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office", Schneiderman said in a statement, "they will effectively prevent me from leading the office's work at this critical time". Her comments remain the White House's most recent public comment about Greitens.

Tuesday evening, Cuomo appointed Nassau District Attorney Madeline Singas as a special prosecutor "to investigate, and if warranted, prosecute, any and all matters concerning the public allegations against Mr. Schneiderman".

Speaker Carl Heastie, a Democrat, said a committee will be named to start screening candidates who have expressed interest in the job, Giglio said. "The victims deserve nothing less".

"I believe it's very important to remove the politics out of this, and the way to do that is to allow the acting AG to complete the term and have the people of the state, not the legislature, select who is going to be the new AG in January", said Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R - Staten Island).

Schneiderman, 63, is being temporarily replaced by New York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, a former Yale Law School professor who once worked as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

Writing in The New York Times this week, Mrs Boudchar said "The worst torture of my life wasn't done to me by Col. Boudchar, who was at parliament with her son to hear the apology, thanked the government for saying sorry.

Underwood has worked in the District Attorneys' offices of three New York City counties and was the counsel and chief assistant in the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney's office.

According to Mayer and Farrow's reporting, at a 2016 party, Schneiderman was drinking heavily, and brought a woman he knew professionally to another location where, in the course of making out, Schneiderman said made remarks that "repelled" the woman, and when she resisted, he slapped her across the face.

These revelations come in the wake of an attorney general who had secured an enviable record with proponents of the #MeToo movement and feminists, including those he had allegedly had affairs with, and had launched investigations against Harvey Weinstein, who he denounced. The alleged abuses, brought to light in an article published by The New Yorker Magazine, strongly denied on the part of the Attorney General. Ultimately, whether or not it happens depends on Schneiderman's accusers.

Former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has emerged from his apartment building for the first time since his resignation following allegations that he physically abused women. The lawsuit followed reports of multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. They accuse Schneiderman of having subjected them to nonconsensual physical violence.

Around four weeks after the pair became involved with one another, Manning Barish alleges Schneiderman hit her while they were alone in his bedroom, causing her to lose her balance and fall onto the bed.

Giglio said if majority Democrats want to appoint someone to have a leg up in the election, they will do so.
