Public Advocate Letitia James plans to enter race for attorney general

When it comes to who will replace Eric Schneiderman as New York State Attorney General, there are two processes taking place; who the legislature will appoint in a process which begins Tuesday in the Democrat-led Assembly, and who will pursue and eventually assume the role through election in November.

Thomas also argues that since acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood was not appointed by the Legislature, she has no authority to bring an indictment against him.

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 previous year, said.

Eleven others are asking to be named interim attorney general.

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

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

Among the other candidates interviewed Wednesday were state Assemblyman Daniel J.

"I don't think any of us expected to be sitting here today".

Three have dropped out since then, including Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, D-Cold Spring, Putnam County, who is considering running for a full term in the fall.

"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.

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.

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.
