  • Acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood being interviewed for the interim appointment in Albany

More than a dozen candidates have submitted a resume and cover letter for the appointment, including Acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood, who said she wouldn't run for the election.

"I definitely think it should be an open process", Barclay said "There's a concern whenever the legislature gets to make an appointment to a statewide office - you don't want a backroom deal". Schneiderman denies the allegations.

The office remains a desirable one for any ambitious Democrat in NY given the office's expansive powers, ability to garner favorable headlines and its clear stepping stone to becoming governor.

She was appointed NY solicitor general, the state's No. 2 legal position, by then-Attorney General Andrew Cuomo in 2007.

"I am not a politician", Underwood said.

After answering lawmakers' questions for an hour, she held her first news conference since being sworn in May 8, a day after The New Yorker posted its article that led just hours later to Schneiderman's resignation.

A complaint filed by the New York State Attorney General's Office also accused Thomas of using his inaugural committee for more than $40,000 in personal spending between 2017 and a year ago, lohud.com said.

Public interviews with the candidates will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie announced Sunday.

Another applicant, Elizabeth Holtzman, is a former congresswoman who served on the House Judiciary Committee that oversaw the impeachment of President Richard Nixon and co-founded the Congressional Caucus for Women's Issues in 1977.

Rep. Kathleen Rice on Tuesday withdrew from consideration to become the next state attorney general. Mike Gianaris, Public Advocate Letitia James, former gubernatorial candidate Zephyr Teachout and ex-U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara - opted to sit out the selection process.
