Today, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) finally did what he had been threatening to do for months: He officially filed a class-action lawsuit against the Obama administration, the National Security Agency and a host of other security officials regarding a US surveillance program that collects information on millions of American citizens.


Senator Paul announced the lawsuit to ‘defend the Fourth Amendment’ yesterday in a video on his official YouTube channel to coincide with the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Today We Fight Backcampaign. (See below)

This is all taking place while state bills to cut off resources to the NSA are mounting and passing out of committees.  The latest bills are strategically located in Utah and Maryland, crucial stomping grounds for the agency.

This “Fourth Amendment Protection Act” campaign is led by OffNow.org and the Tenth Amendment Center.

Meanwhile, Congress remains silent and ineffectual.
