Attorneys for Pro Life Counselors Respond to Attorney General Schneiderman's Resignation

He said he wants the interview process to be completed before he backs any particular candidate.

Still, Underwood, who interviewed with the panel on Tuesday and has the support of Cuomo and several of the interview committee members, looks like the interim candidate to beat.

The presumed front-runner is Barbara Underwood, the acting attorney general. Schneiderman resigned last week after four women he dated accused him in a New Yorker article of abuse and assault. Past attorneys general have ranged from a defender of consumers, a crime fighter, an investigator of Wall Street corruption and, in Schneiderman's case, an adversary to the policies of President Donald Trump.

"I know Barbara, I have worked with her and have great respect for her", Lavine said.

"There's some truth to that", Underwood said.

Zapesochny, who said he was "unaffiliated with a political party", agreed, saying, "I believe merely settling for a caretaker would miss an opportunity".

But she made clear that she has no political ambitions and will not run for the attorney general's post.

The second round of interviews of candidates for NY attorney general is being held in Albany, with another lineup of six hopefuls to be queried by state lawmakers.

"I don't think any of us expected to be sitting here today".

There's also a tight timetable for choosing a successor.

"I take this responsibility very seriously and will do my best to ensure the residents of New York State have the most qualified and experienced person to serve as Attorney General for the next several months", Gallivan said in a statement. They include Hudson Valley Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, New York City Public Advocate Tish James and Zephyr Teachout, who was a Democratic primary candidate for governor in 2014. He said his committee will make its recommendation to the Assembly speaker, and then the full Legislature will have a chance to vote on it. The legislature as a whole will appoint an interim attorney general. Among those interviewed Tuesday were Assemblymembers Tom Abinanti and Danny O'Donnell, and former Congresswoman and New York City Comptroller Elizabeth Holtzman.
