‘Revenge Porn’ Bill Moves to House

Would penalize posting naked, intimate pictures of ex-girlfriends online.

NewsWorks reports: “A proposal to criminalize “revenge porn,” which passed quickly in the Pennsylvania Senate, now moves toward an uncertain future in the state House. Revenge porn consists of nude photos, posted online with the subjects’ identifying information. A proposal to ban it will be taken up by a House committee after its approval in the Senate approval in a matter of weeks.” Philly Mag talked last month with the bill’s sponsor, State Sen. Judy Schwank.
