Outgoing Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II (R), who battled the White House over health-care reform, will continue to fight the Obama administration when he steps down at the end of this week.
Cuccinelli will assist U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) with a class-
action suit against the National Security Agency over its surveillance of Americans’ phone records.
Cuccinelli first announced his involvement in the suit in a Facebook post over the weekend.
“Join Rand Paul and I in asserting our right to privacy,” he wrote. Cuccinelli will serve as a legal adviser to Paul, a spokesman said, but not as the lead counsel in the lawsuit.
Paul’s suit has been in the works since the summer. He has been collecting signatures for the past six months, saying that anyone with a cellphone can join in. Paul announced his intention to go ahead with the suit on Fox News on Friday and revealed that Cuccinelli would be part of the legal team.
