Re: Him, Al Franken

FBI had jurisdiction over ... generally any criminal activity that crosses State boundaries
And publishing privately held, or secretly taken recordings of people in their most private moments nation(world)-wide for the purpose of humiliation and/or blackmail does not count as a "criminal activity that crosses State boundaries"? This is exactly in the FBI's remit.

On another note: The bit I see missing from the "Don't Want 'em on the internet? Don't let 'em be taken" crowd is where there is anything wrong with a couple recording their bedroom activities. Please point to me in the bible where is says "Thou shalt not record thy freakery" or anything to that point. Why is it wrong to trust your partner with images of intimate moments, when you trust them to be there in your most intimate moments? The violation of that trust is the main insult of these revenge porn sites.
