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.

Under state law, the Legislature has the authority to appoint an attorney general, should the job become vacant.

Acting Attorney General Barbara Underwood is considered by some to be the favorite to serve out the remainder of disgraced former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's term.

Maloney, who represents New York's 18th Congressional District and is serving his third term, must decide whether to run for attorney general before the state Democratic Committee's convention on Long Island next week.

Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie said candidates for the temporary appointment will be given a chance to publicly discuss their qualifications and answer questions from legislators.

"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.

Almost every assemblymember and senator on the committee praised Underwood's credentials effusively; Democrat Senator Brad Hoylman called her a "real lawyer's lawyer". "But I can assure you that's not who I am".

Yassky offered his support for Underwood on Twitter on Monday, describing her as "a superlative public servant and is uniquely equipped to serve as attorney general at this juncture". "I know the work of the office already", she said.

Abinanti told lawmakers he intends to run for another term in the Assembly this fall even if he is appointed interim attorney general. Zephyr Teachout, who created an exploratory committee this week; and state Sen. Flanagan praised her qualifications.
