  2. Additional reporting by Richmond freelance reporter Zack Burdyk

    Women’s rights advocates in Virginia are keeping an eye on Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli by appealing to residents’ pop music sensibilities.

    Cooch Watch, a group formed by Richmond students, professionals and advocates, say on their Facebook pageThe Cooch has been keeping an eye on your vagina, so now we’re going to keep an eye on him.”

    A play on Cuccinelli’s last name, Cooch Watch was founded in July after he refused to certify a grandfather clause in state Board of Health regulations that would allow most of Virginia’s abortion providers to stay open. The group began their efforts by picketing Cuccinelli’s appearance at Freeman High School in Henrico County.

    Earlier this month, the group released a music video, “Hands Off, Crazy”, a women’s rights themed parody of Carly Rae Jepsen’s earworm “Call Me Maybe.” The video has over 70,000 views and has been featured on The Rachel Maddow Show. This week, they followed it up with another shoot in Richmond’s Monroe Park to the tune of Cher Lloyd’s “Want U Back”.

    Mitt Romney during his campaign stop in Sterling, Va.

    The presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney was joined by Virginia Atty. Gen. Ken Cuccinelli in Sterling, Va. late Wednesday evening during his second campaign stop in the state this week.

    Romney spoke to a crowd of 500 supporters inside the warehouse of a high-tech manufacturer in northern Virginia, about his response to the court’s possible action on the healthcare ruling Thursday.

    As Romney called “Obamacare” a “moral failure,” Democrats quickly responded by pointing out how the Massachusetts healthcare law modeled what Romney wants repealed in Obamacare today.  

    Romney will be in Washington D.C. Thursday morning when the court announces its ruling on the healthcare issue.
