Resumes stacking up for much-coveted NY Attorney General job

Westchester Mayor: Schneiderman Ouster Negates My Felony Rap

Underwood told state lawmakers that she's not interested in running for office November and intends only to serve out the rest of Schneiderman's term if the Legislature appoints her interim attorney general.

Just ask the other candidates for the job.

Thomas claims former state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman conducted an illegal investigation.

"I won't be distracted as anyone who is going to run would be by the whole process of fundraising and politicking", she said.

"If I were the legislature, I would appoint Barbara Underwood to complete this term", Lloyd Constantine, a former aide to Eliot Spitzer, wrote in his cover letter to the Legislature.

Former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman's application came with a similar caveat. Up first was the current acting attorney general, Barbara Underwood, who is the favorite to win the appointment.

The news comes days after she withdrew her name from consideration for appointment as interim AG to temporarily replace Eric Schneiderman - who resigned in disgrace amid allegations he physically abused four women.

It's up to the state Legislature, however, to pick someone to fill out Schneiderman's term, which expires at the end of the year.

High Court deals women a huge blow in landmark divorce ruling
FIDA had argued that the provision promotes inequality between spouses and indirectly discriminates against women. Justice Mativo further ruled that the section does not offend any sections of the Constitution.

Barclay is one of two Republicans on the panel, which is controlled by Democrats because they hold the majority in the Assembly.

The special committee will be chaired by Assemblyman Joseph Lentol, D-Brooklyn.

"I don't think any of us expected to be sitting here today". "I've argued 20 cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, 21 cases before our state's highest court, and 33 cases in the Second Circuit - and I've closely supervised the work of other attorneys on hundreds more. There's some truth to that, but I can assure you that is not who I am".

The remaining six attorney general candidates, including Humbach, Diederich and Zapesochny, will interview Wednesday.

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.

On Tuesday, James opened a campaign account for a potential run for attorney general.

Underwood, who said she was stunned by the "deeply disturbing" accusations, said she views herself as a competent caretaker who will provide continuity in the attorney general's office. Flanagan praised her qualifications.
