Arizona Senate gives initial OK to 'revenge porn' bill

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Senate has given initial approval to a bill aimed at stopping jilted lovers from posting explicit pictures of their former flames online to get revenge.

The measure sponsored by Republican Rep. J.D. Mesnard of Chandler would make it a felony to post nude photos of a person without their written consent.

House Bill 2515 is one of many measures being considered across the nation in response to the posting of ``revenge porn'' that has been made easier by the growth of social networking sites. Last year, California made it a misdemeanor to post such images.

The Senate approved the bill Thursday on a voice-vote after amending it to define some postings as acts of domestic violence. It still needs a final Senate vote and another House vote.
