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?

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

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"?
Many young women have found that out the hard wayGovernment is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.
We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
