The Cold Spring Democrat had been listed among 16 attorney-general prospects that a panel of state lawmakers was scheduled to interview in Albany on Tuesday and Wednesday as part of the Legislature's selection of an interim appointment. Schneiderman denies the allegations. "I have pursued the cause of justice in the courts, without fear or favor, for all of my professional life", she said, reading from a prepared statement.
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. "But I can assure you that's not who I am".
She said it's been a busy week, and she considers it a great challenge during what she called an important time in the country. "Some people joke that the National Association of Attorneys General - NAAG - is also the National Association of Aspiring Governors".
"I'm not suggesting that I'm more qualified, I'm suggesting that I have different qualifications and that other qualification is having served in public office and that I'm aware of the policy issues", Abinanti said.Читайте также: Hazard waiting for Chelsea signings before deciding on contract
Underwood has said she will not run in November. He said he and his colleagues take their constitutional duties seriously and are "unbowed" by the pressure. On May 21, the state Republican and Democratic conventions begin.
Among those considering a run this fall are New York City Public Advocate Tish James, a Democrat who did not put her name in contention for the temporary position. He said his committee will make its recommendation to the Assembly speaker, and then the full Legislature will have a chance to vote on it.
The pool applicants for interim attorney general include several other women.
The office remains a desirable one for any ambitious Democrat in NY given the office's expansive powers, ability to garner favorable headlines and its clear stepping stone to becoming governor.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
