Cuomo Appoints Greek-American Madeline Singas to Probe Schneiderman

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate allegations of abuse by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman .

Cuomo late Tuesday said Greek-American Nassau District Attorney Madeline Singas will investigate and possibly prosecute "any and all matters concerning the public allegations" against Schneiderman.

Cuomo says Singas also will probe whether Schneiderman used his staff or office resources to facilitate the alleged abusive liaisons.

Singas is the former head of the Special Victims Bureau at the Nassau district attorney's office.

Cuomo said the special prosecutor will work with the other district attorneys, including the district attorney in Suffolk County on Long Island, where one of the women detailed alleged abuse by Schneiderman after a party in the Hamptons.

Cuomo said he appointed the special prosecutor in part to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest with the attorney general's office, which is currently investigating the actions of the Manhattan district attorney's office and the New York Police Department in their handling of the Weinstein sex allegations.

Four women accused the Democrat of physical violence in a New Yorker article.

Schneiderman, who has resigned, has implied his conduct was either welcomed by the women, or was not as they described.
