Albany, N.Y. - Former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has already been replaced.
Schneiderman stepped down yesterday in disgrace after a bombshell "New Yorker" article detailed allegations by several women of repeated abuse.
The state's solicitor general, Barbara Underwood, was quickly sworn in as acting New York attorney general.
A joint session of the State Legislature soon will select someone to serve the reaming seven months of Schneiderman's Term. The State Assembly Democrats, who alone are a majority of State Lawmakers, held a closed door meeting Tuesday morning to begin discussing who they will appoint as Schneiderman's successor.
