Illegal Wiretapping

Recently an anti-gay activist taped a conversation with someone that I know, without his consent.  And if this isn’t bad enough, she kept taping after he thought he had hung up.  She then made this conversation public.  And this woman claims to be a Christian.  Well Ms Christian, let me give you a bit of law that I hope will make you change your mind and take down your illegal post and make an apology to my friend.

Here is a bit of information on the taping of conversations. Some states allow one party to tape even if the other party does not know about it.  However, California is not one of them.  Here is some info from the website Reporter’s Committee for the Freedom of the Press:

Twelve states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as “two-party consent” laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping.

Not only that Ms Christian, read this:

Federal law and most state laws also make it illegal to disclose the contents of an illegally intercepted call or communication.

I think it is time for my friend to contact the FCC, since they deal with people who not only illegally record phone calls, but them make them public.  Especially since I warned Ms. Christian that she was doing something highly illegal.  So far she hasn’t changed her post.  You have to wonder what other conversations she has taped?  My guess is that her anti-gay Christian friends would be very wary of speaking to her once they find out she likes to illegally tape conversations…

    Kevin, Your friend should not only report her to the FCC but he ( am assuming it is a he here) should also hire an attorney and sue MS Christian in the public court of law there by exposing her and here so called Christian practices to the public. What this person did is to try and pulicly humilate and damage your friends reputation. Your friend needs to get an attorney and press charges against her because she has broken the law. These godless dominionist types feel they are above the law and it is perfectly ok for them to set out to destroy anyone they can. The only way they will be stopped is like stopping vampiers drag them out into the light of day :). Your friend also needs to report her to her IP provider because they can pull her site and ban her from doing more damage to others. I cann\’t address what she wrote since I dont know what her site is but she could cause your friend some serious personal damages if the information on her web site got into the wrong hands. We all need to start taking these people on and exposing them for what they are. When we see abuses such as this we need to report it to the IP providers and make these peoples names public and what they are doing public. I wish your friend the best but seriously your friend should consult with an attorney just to see what can be done.

    Hey Justin,I didn\’t think about contacting her internet provider. I think I will do that if he decides not to. I just can\’t imagine taping a phone call and then continue taping if after the person thought he had hung up! I hope he does follow through with a lawyer.
