Since the New Yorker broke the allegations surrounding Eric Schneiderman, members of Congress say they were stunned and angered.
"The story came out at 7; he stepped down at 10. He did the right thing and I’m glad he did," said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D).
"Here’s a person who is claiming to be the champion of women and the #MeToo movement and going after the President and whomever else," said Rep. Claudia Tenney (R). "The hypocrisy of his own behavior has been revealed."
But some members say stepping down isn’t good enough, and are calling for a full and thorough criminal investigation.
"I think there’s a lot to be discovered on this, but I think his personal conduct, should this be proven to be true, is something that should be considered by a jury," Tenney said.
New Yorkers in Washington wonder now about who will take over the AG’s office -- some with suggestions, others waiting and seeing.
"Our public advocate, Letitia James, I think she’s highly qualified," said Rep. Yvette Clarke (D). "I’m sure we’ll hear about other individuals as this process proceeds.”
"It’s only a day after he stepped down," said Schumer, the Senate's minority leader. "I’m not going to get into speculative candidacies."
