Eric Schneiderman, the disgraced New York attorney general who just resigned after sexual abuse allegations from multiple women, also used racist language according to one of them. This is an absolutely sick allegation.
Schneiderman Accuser: He Slapped Me, Spit on Me, Called Me His ‘Brown Slave’
Of the four women accusing Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D-NY) of sexual misconduct and physical abuse, two went on the record. One of those is Tanya Selvaratnam, who was born in Sri Lanka. The New Yorker describes her as having “dark skin” and, among other things, she alleges Schneiderman called her his “brown slave” and demanded she say out loud that she was “his property.”
“Sometimes, he’d tell me to call him Master, and he’d slap me until I did,” Selvaratnam claimed. “He started calling me his ‘brown slave’ and demanding that I repeat that I was ‘his property.’”
Schneiderman is a 63-year-old left-wing Democrat who resigned in disgrace Monday night.
According to the New Yorker, Selvaratnam is an author and “progressive Democratic feminist” who was in a relationship with Schneiderman “from the summer of 2016 until the fall of 2017.”
“The slaps started after we’d gotten to know each other,” she told the New Yorker. “It was at first as if he were testing me. Then it got stronger and harder. It wasn’t consensual. This wasn’t sexual playacting. This was abusive, demeaning, threatening behavior.”
Schneiderman was a darling of the left for his opposition to Trump. You won’t see much of him now.
