Schneiderman Speaks

Our own Reid Pillifant caught up with Eric Schneiderman, who was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run yesterday with an NY1 producer, at the American Bar Association’s Criminal Justice Section Meet the Candidates Night.

Schneiderman said the thing had been blown out of proportion.

“Guys, we are talking about a kid pulling out of a parking space and bumping a little bit the car in front,” he said. “It’s not like this was even a moving vehicle running down the street. So, it’s been really sensationalized and we will deal with it.”

And in an odd twist, that kid, it turns out, is Elena Kagan’s niece.

He then excused himself, saying he had to head back to NY1 studios.
