Do they think about anything else?

Sex, I mean. And Republicans.

Rep. Donna Hutchinson, you may remember, brought Arkansas legislation in 2007 to make a crime of so-called "upskirt" and "downblouse" photography, in which shooters take photos of publicly displayed naughty regions, including where clothed.

That legislation apparently didn't go far enough. She has filed new legislation that would make it a Class A, rather than Class B, misdemeanor offense of video voyeurism, to give such images to another or to post them on the Internet. The news photo that inadvertently catches a glimpse of underthings? Could be a problem, all you cheerleader photographers.
