A New York assemblyman has a suggestion on what former state attorney general Eric Schneiderman should do with his campaign funds.

Tuesday, Assemblyman D. Billy Jones released a statement saying, "I urge former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to donate his millions in unspent campaign contributions to organizations spearheading the fight against domestic violence. Given the allegations of abuse and assault that have come to light, these funds can help other New Yorkers dealing with the scourge of domestic violence rebuild their lives."

Schneiderman resigned his post last week after multiple women accused him of domestic violence.
