Mount Vernon mayor files lawsuit against NY AG's office

Rep. Kathleen Rice seen here on March 4

Acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood is among those vying for the position, alongside incumbent Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney and former New York City Councilman David Yassky.

Underwood, speaking to reporters afterward, said she thinks the hundreds of attorneys who work in the AG's office were reassured by her quick assumption of the post of acting attorney general, just one day after the accusations against Schneiderman were made public in the New Yorkermagazine.

"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.

James registered Monday with the state Board of Elections for a campaign committee to raise money for a run for attorney general.

One tumultuous week later, Underwood was the first applicant Tuesday to face questions from the bipartisan, bicameral committee of the Legislature, chaired by Democrat Assemblyman Joseph Lentol.

"I don't see a drastic change; I would see my role as continuing to look at the cases proposed", Underwood said.

Under state law, the Legislature has the authority to appoint an attorney general, should the job become vacant. "We want to interview her and every other person". "But I can assure you that's not who I am".

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. "I know the work of the office already", she said.

Republicans who lead the state Senate favor Underwood, as does Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "Some people joke that the National Association of Attorneys General - NAAG - is also the National Association of Aspiring Governors". Gueron served as the deputy chief trial counsel to Schneiderman's predecessor, Andrew Cuomo, who this year is running for a third term as NY governor.
