Ok, here's my question. Why would a PODIATRIST have patients undress in the first place. Wouldn't that have been a red flag to the patients that something was up? Unless taking off your socks and shoes counts.....

It's about time the law makers get anywhere close to what is going on today.

Thanks to the Republican legislators who fixed this law! As the years go by, the more I see that Republicans are the only ones who care about protecting kids and women from predators. I am going to vote Republican for the first time this next year, because they care about things I care about!

Hasn't this gotten a bit off the subject of punishing creeps who videotape women in moments of extreme privacy, so that they can get their sick-o jollies?

Maybe sending a few of these weirdoes to the can for a few years will act to discourage others from doing this. Hats off to the state leg!

Are you still upset about that whole police expose thing? Wow. Anyways, I tell you what; let's make a bargain. The day the government gives me the authorization to lawfully investigate and arrest "men" who engage in voyeurism crimes, I'll accept responsibility for not stopping their misdeeds.

You're right. Men are so horrible. We are just terrible people. And women are angels. Get real.

TeriJane seems to forget that it is the Repubs who are spying on and listening to everyone. They approved warrentless invasion of privacy. This is just another of their hypocritical moves.

There was a Lifetime TV movie about this subject several years ago, "Video Voyeur", based on a true story, starring Angie Harmon as a wife/mother in some southern state whose neighbor, under the guise of helping Harmon's family "fix up" their new home, installed hidden video cameras and recorded practically everything they did. He was caught, but all the police could charge him with was breaking & entering -- because there were NO LAWS against him video-taping them! Harmon's character went public and helped get new laws passed. This should be a FEDERAL law, not state-by-state!!! No state should allow this behavior!!

Wow, what a simplistic view. I'm so sure no one else cares about this issue! Your right, Republicans are the only ones. So the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan are what, not someones kid??

Before you do something rash, remember the sentor from IDAHO who was looking for a GAY SEXUALLY ENCOUNTER in a men's bathroom, these are the same ones who call themselves having strong family values, and the biggest freaks ever. Think about it.

Kudos to the lawmakers for finally updating laws with current technology, but a thumbs down to Stacy St. Clair for being out of date with her references. Allan Funt? There isn't a person under 40 who knows who that is, and Bob Saggett hasn't hosted the America's Funniest Home Videos show since 1997.

I think it's great to put suspected terrorists under surveillance,
Democrats are more concerned about the rights of terrorists and illegal aliens than law abiding citizens

and this so called "domestic spying"
was intercepting calls from US to counties with terrorist ties not neighbors or family calls within the US.

If it had been done sooner the world
trade center might still be standing.

( I bet I'll get a lot of personal attacks for this post )

This is just an effort to protect the "lawmakers".

Small video cameras have proliferated so much, and so much of the "lawmakers'" 'business' is conducted in restrooms, that it was felt by the "lawmakers" that they needed to protect their business methods and clients from busybody documentarians.

There are many many many questionable activities that take place in mensrooms around and in goverment buildings that our "lawmakers" would like to remain unfilmed.

I was thinking of the old bagman handoff routine, but I'm very sure that there are many other handoff's taking place that they'd like to keep off-camera.
