ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he has already spoken with several people interested in becoming New York's attorney general even before the state Legislature starts the process to replace Eric Schneiderman.
    
During a phone interview on NY1 Sunday, Cuomo said he plans to meet this week with some of those interested in the job Schneiderman abruptly resigned from last week after The New Yorker reported he had physically abused four women he dated.
    
Schneiderman and Cuomo, New York's attorney general from 2007 through 2009, are both Democrats.
    
Democrats hold the overall majority in the Legislature, which has the authority to appoint an attorney general through a joint vote of the Senate and Assembly.
    
Public interviews are scheduled Tuesday and Wednesday in Albany for 16 people who have applied to fill the vacancy.
