An unidentified manÂ can be heardÂ asking another man --Â who does sound like Cuccinelli, based on comparisons with definite clips of Cuccinelli that can be found on YouTube -- what he might do as attorney general to take on the birth certificate issue. "Well, only if there is a conflict where we are suing the federal government for a law they've passed. So it's possible," said Cuccinelli.
Ben Tribbett, host of the Not Larry Sabato blog that posted the video, declined to identify the original source of the audio, but told us his understanding is that it was recorded after Cuccinelli's election and before his swearing-in -- that is, between early-November 2009 and mid-January 2010.
