But on Monday night, the New Yorker revealed that Schneiderman's mantle as a champion for liberals and women may be underserved: Four women, including two who spoke on the record with the magazine, have made credible allegations of physical abuse against the attorney general.
On Monday, The New Yorker magazine reported the allegations of four women who accused Schneiderman of physical violence against them.
Schneiderman said the allegations, which he strongly contests, make it impossible to continue as the state's leading law enforcement officer.
This is a developing story.
Schneiderman's resignation will take effect at close of business on Tuesday.

"In the privacy of intimate relationships, I have engaged in role-playing and other consensual sexual activity". Schneiderman has also cast himself as a prominent opponent to President Donald Trump. I have not assaulted anyone.
A third woman also told the publication that Schneiderman abused her physically, while a fourth woman alleged Schneiderman slapped her across the face after she denied him when he made an advance on her. This was under no circumstances a sex game gone wrong. It was completely unexpected and shocking.
Both Ms. Manning Barish and Ms. Selvaratnam said they were upset by seeing the attorney-general getting out front on the Weinstein case and similar matters, knowing what they did about his conduct. She recalls screaming in surprise and pain, and beginning to cry, and says that she felt frightened. The statements from the women are clear, however, in saying that there was nothing consensual about the abuse they received.
The New Yorker cited a high-profile character witness for Ms. Manning Barish - novelist Salman Rushdie. "She was obviously very upset" and he advised her to leave Mr. Schneiderman.
