Kathleen Rice Passes on Running for New York Attorney General

The State Legislature on Tuesday was scheduled to begin interviewing more than a dozen candidates to fill the role on an interim basis until December 31, when Schneiderman's term ends. Schneiderman has denied the accusations. "I have pursued the cause of justice in the courts, without fear or favor, for all of my professional life", she said, reading from a prepared statement.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, D-Bronx, said lawmakers will do their due diligence before appointing Underwood or anyone else. "There's some truth to that, but I can assure you that is not who I am".

She said it's been a busy week, and she considers it a great challenge during what she called an important time in the country.

She said some people joke that the National Association of Attorneys General is actually the "National Association of Aspiring Governors".

Thomas Abinanti, the next applicant whom the committee considered Tuesday, joked that the room had already cleared out, and that the state "could do a lot worse" than Underwood.

Underwood said she has no plans to run for attorney general in November, which she said makes her a better option for the position now during the interim period.

"We believe that we have the constitutional power and right to do this", Lentol said.

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

The beginning of candidate interviews for a new state attorney general was held on Tuesday by a legislative committee that included members from both parties. Four women told the magazine Schneiderman, 63, physically and verbally abused them while they dated the attorney general, a Democrat who was running for a third four-year term.

Eleven others are asking to be named interim attorney general. "I am confident that New Yorkers will choose an Attorney General who is worthy of our faith and our trust".
