Attorneys for Pro Life Counselors Respond to Attorney General Schneiderman's Resignation

Jones urges Schneiderman to donate campaign funds to fight domestic violence

"What's going on tells me that even the Democrats who are interested in running for attorney general know that this process is tainted and they don't want anything to do with it", said Tom Dadey, Onondaga County's Republican Party chairman.

"I think it's an understatement to say that none of us expected to be sitting here today for this goal", Underwood told senators and Assembly members gathered Tuesday at a meeting room in the state Capitol complex.

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.

The presumed front-runner is Barbara Underwood, the acting attorney general.

Jones, in an interview, said he hopes the qualifications of those seeking to be the next attorney general matter more in the process than any partisan considerations.

"Why would anyone among the electeds want to stir controversy in their election year?" said George Arzt, a longtime Democratic consultant.

"I'm not sure it's a good idea for this office to be run by a self-proclaimed short-timer", Gueron said. Attorney Cannon explains: "Schneiderman's case against our clients depends upon outlandish hyperbole: A willingness to look at acceptable conduct and call it, with the power of his office, what it plainly is not". "But I can assure you that's not who I am".

"I take this responsibility very seriously and will do my best to ensure the residents of New York State have the most qualified and experienced person to serve as Attorney General for the next several months", Gallivan said in a statement.

Several GOP female state senators, including Sen.

"There's some truth to that", Underwood said. She said that Cuomo had also made it clear in a conversation that he doesn't want her to seek election, but rather be the interim attorney general until December 31.

But she made clear that she has no political ambitions and will not run for the attorney general's post.

With Eric Schneiderman abruptly resigning last week, the New York Assembly is scrambling to find an interim replacement as state attorney general.
