NEW YORK CITY, New York: On Tuesday, July 13, 2010, Schneiderman was accused of being involved in a hit-and-run car accident located in Manhattan. The Democratic state senator "was in a car driven by a staff member (Rachel Kagan, niece of United States Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan) when it hit a parked car Monday night and drove away," but not before an eyewitness recorded the license plate number of the vehicle.[1] The automobile, owned by an executive editor for NY1, a twenty-four hour cable-news television channel focusing on the five boroughs of New York City, sustained about $3,000 worth of damage in the fender bender. A spokesman for the state senator called the allegation of a hit-and-ran "outrageous" and said that Schneiderman "expressed his sincere apology, and offered to pay for all repairs."[2]
