Will Barclay appointed to panel selecting NY attorney general; interviews start today

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.

"I am not a politician", Underwood said.

Public Advocate Letitia James has filed papers with the state Board of Elections declaring her intention to run for attorney general in the fall.

Rep. Kathleen Rice on Tuesday withdrew from consideration to become the next state attorney general.

But the legislature has the power to name an interim AG and on Tuesday was interviewing potential candidates - including Underwood - who would serve through the end of the year.

Richard Thomas is charged with allegedly siphoning campaign and inaugural committee money, the New York Daily News reports.

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

"But we are here, after deeply disturbing allegations that shocked me and many others, and that caused the prior attorney general to resign", Underwood said. "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". "But I can assure you that's not who I am".

"I'm not sleeping very much", she said with a laugh.

Though she said on the record she will not run for the office in 2018 elections, Underwood said she can bring stability to the position in the meantime.

"It's time to put people ahead of politics, and ultimately let the voters decide who their next attorney general will be", Flanagan said in a statement.

Among those who have spoken positively of Underwood, a Democrat, is Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan, a Suffolk County Republican. Schneiderman himself won over the office in 2010 only when Andrew Cuomo left to run for governor.
