The Honorable Ken Cuccinelli is the former Attorney General of Virginia, having served from 2010 to January of this year. As Virginia’s Attorney General, Mr. Cuccinelli focused on defending constitutional rights and protecting Virginians from the burdensome regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, and–most famously–he was the first to sue to fight the unconstitutional Obamacare.
Prior to his tenure as Attorney General, Mr. Cuccinelli served for eight years in the Virginia State Senate where he led the fight to protect human life and families, stop tax increases, and keep Virginia a low-regulation and pro-free market state.
Since stepping down as Virginia’s Attorney General in January, Ken has relished his return to the private sector where he is thriving as an entrepreneur and a private lawyer.
In February, on behalf of his clients, Sen. Rand Paul and FreedomWorks, Ken filed suit against President Obama and the NSA in an effort to stop the NSA from sweeping up nearly all Americans’ telephone data in violation of the 4th Amendment.
In addition to his efforts to defend our constitutional rights, Mr. Cuccinelli is also pursuing various legal avenues to combat healthcare fraud across the country.
Mr. Cuccinelli is a Catholic homeschooling father and small business owner of Cuccinelli & Associates, LLC.
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli leads the historic fight against the unprecedented overreach of the federal government.
With Obamacare and agencies like the EPA, the FCC, and the National Labor Relations Board attempting to exercise unprecedented control over the American people, the Obama Administration was breaking federal laws, ignoring federal courts, and violating the Constitution to achieve its goals of redistributing wealth, concentrating power in Washington, and rewarding its supporters.
Without enough lawmakers in Washington devoted to protecting the rule of law to stop the federal government’s liberty-stealing power grab, the battle had to be waged in an unprecedented way: from the states — just as our Founding Fathers intended.
The man who led the charge was Ken Cuccinelli, the first state attorney general to argue in federal court against Obamacare, an unapologetic defender of the Constitution, and a man admirers and detractors alike said “was tea party long before there was a Tea Party.” The Last Line of Defense provides a behind-the-scenes account of the myriad of legal battles in which our states were the only instruments of resistance to federal abuses of power. It is a must-read for every patriot.
