Another sex scandal is rocking the New York political landscape after New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s resignation. Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner and now Eric Schneiderman were well-esteemed politicians, whose careers fell from grace. Fifty-three-year-old Weiner was a seven-term Democratic congressman who resigned in 2011 after tweeting lewd photos and was sentenced to prison last May for sexting with a minor. Fifty-eight-year old Spitzer, once Governor of New York, saw his career collapse in 2008 after a prostitution scandal.
