Schneiderman Has Got Another Scandal On His Hands

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has an Ex-Wife who thinks that he is not such a bad guy. She divorced him a couple of decades back but they seem to have one of the most interesting working arrangements. Jennifer Cunningham is her name and she is a New York-based lobbyist who seems to have the key to power access with the NewYork Attorney General’s office. Here lobbying firm is SKDKnickerbocker. On their webpage, they say: “SKDK brings unparalleled strategic communications experience to Fortune 500 companies, non-profits, philanthropic organizations, labor unions, and political committees and candidates.” They are into women’s issues especially. That makes this all the more strange.

As Written and Reported By Chuck Ross for the Daily Caller:

When Eric Schneiderman resigned as New York’s attorney general on May 7 amid revelations he engaged in a pattern of alleged physical abuse of women he dated over the years, one of the Democrat’s first defenders was his ex-wife, a New York-based lobbyist named Jennifer Cunningham.

Schneiderman is “someone of the highest character,” said Cunningham, who asserted it was “impossible to believe” the allegations in a New Yorker reportthat Schneiderman abused multiple girlfriends over a period of several years.

Cunningham’s defense of her ex-husband drew some attention because of her position as a partner at SKDKnickerbocker, a Democrat-aligned public relations and lobbying firm that touts its feminist bona fides. Two of its most high-profile partners are Clinton White House aide Hilary Rosen and Obama White House aide Anita Dunn.

Though they divorced in 1996, Cunningham remained one of Schneiderman’s closest political advisers — so close that Cunningham worked as an unpaid adviser for Schneiderman before his fall from grace.

That pro bono relationship has been met with skepticism from some New York political observers and government watchdog groups…..
