UPDATED: Meet America's new civil rights champion

Who said it?

“Martin Luther King was spied upon, civil rights leaders were spied upon, Muhammad Ali was spied upon, antiwar protesters were spied upon. The possibility for abuse in this is incredible. So I don’t care if there’s never been any evidence of abuse with the N.S.A., they should not be collecting the data.”

Answer to come shortly.

UPDATE: Of course it's Rand Paul -- the same guy who has his doubts about the Civil Rights Act of 1964 that King risked his life fighting for.
