RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Former Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is keeping active in state politics. The Republican has been an advocate for civil liberty-related legislation this year. He testified before a General Assembly committee about a proposed amendment to the Virginia Constitution restricting unreasonable search and seizures. And he penned an editorial with the American Civil Liberties Union about the need to restrict the use of police surveillance technology. Cuccinelli also recently re-opened his state-level PAC and seeded it with $75,000 from his old gubernatorial account. Behind the scenes, Cuccinelli has given advice to Republican party operatives on ways to make life uncomfortable for high-ranking Democrats, according to emails obtained by The Associated Press. Cuccinelli said he currently has no plans to run for another elected office but could in the future.
