    Original message Weiner v. Breitbart -- US Supreme Court


    Edited on Thu Jun-09-11 05:40 AM by kentuck
    Griswold v. Connecticut, 1965, protected the individual's right to privacy. Roe v. Wade came later. It is an established law.

    Personally, I think Anthony Weiner needs to take this case to the courts. It would be a precedent in the technology era. If you send someone a private photo, pornographic or whatever, does someone else have a right to get that photo and put it all over the Internet and the world? Unless this individual was CC'ed the photo, then he would have no claim to it. He would have no right to disseminate the photo and to humiliate or destroy the life of the other individual.

    With that said, I think Weiner's career is possibly over. His political life, and perhaps his personal life, is ruined. It is not relevant whether or not he sent pornographic photos of himself to women or not? The question is whether or not Mr Breitbart had the right to intercept or to attain those photos and put them out for everyone to see? I think the law would say that he does not and that he should be held accountable, both monetarily and criminally.

    I think Congressman Weiner should take this all the way to the Supreme Court. It is not about whether he was right or wrong in his actions. It is about his right to privacy.

    I know kentuck has been supporting his bud "Toni" but some of these assholes just don't know when to walk away.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Boy I love how this douche bag is reaching for an excuse to sue BB. I bet if Weiner had been an Rethug would he be fighting this hard?

    Oh he is reaching like crazy. There are plenty of dems on that thread pointing out the obvious that once you post a pic on a public domain, well its public. He STILL keeps insisting that it SHOULD be wrong, lol.

    7. I think that is the question?
    Is there a right to show a "private" photo to whomever you wish if it was sent to "you"?
    If "you" receive a photo from somebody (of a private nature) then it is up to "your" judgement who then see's it....

    Okay, so when is Rep. McDermott going on trial for hacking Gingrich's cell phone back when he was Speaker of the House?
