Dr. Politics: Signs, Signs Everywhere a Sign

Maryland’s Education Debate: Blank Check vs Accountability

By Mark Uncapher

Brian Frosh’s Terrible Record on Combating Sexual Violence

By Mark Uncapher

Democratic New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was forced to resign earlier this year when his acts of violence against four of his romantic partners became public.[1] The women said that Schneiderman had repeatedly choked, hit or violently slapped them, all without their consent.

Since President Trump’s inauguration, Schneiderman has filed scores of lawsuits and administrative actions against the Administration.[2]  Arkansas AG Leslie Rutledge, chairwoman of the Republican Attorneys General Association, called Schneiderman the “ringleader” of anti-Trump activist AGs fighting the president in the courts.
