Statement on Decision to Not Bring Charges Against Schneiderman

Statement from NYGOP Chairman Cox on DA’s Decision to Not Bring Criminal Charges Against Former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman
November 8, 2018
“The decision to not bring any criminal charges against Eric Schneiderman is an appalling miscarriage of justice. Mr. Schneiderman’s serial sexual abuse and violence against women while serving as the state’s top law enforcement officer portraying himself as a champion of the Me Too movement was a particularly egregious violation of both the law and the public’s trust. A powerful politician escaping criminal charges for his actions is not only a slap in the face to his victims, but sends a dangerous message to abusers and sets back the movement to ensure protections for women. We are cognizant of legal statutes of limitations, but it’s nonetheless outrageous Mr. Schneiderman will not be held accountable for his crimes.”
