WHO'S SORRY NOW? Former Indiana Rep. Jud McMillin.
  • WHO'S SORRY NOW? Former Indiana Rep. Jud McMillin.
Great. An Arkansas angle that allows a mention of Republican Rep. Jud McMillin, who abruptly resigned from the Indiana legislature after a sex video was sent from his cell phone to everyone on his contact list.

He's going to be spending more time with family, as the familiar saying goes.

McMillin has drawn great attention because he is highly religious. He was a lead sponsor of the Indiana legislation, similar to that passed in Arkansas, that establishes a religious pretext to discriminate against gay people.

But that's not all. McMillin also was a member of a legislative committee that blocked a bill to criminalize revenge porn. That is, he blocked a bill that would have made a criminal of whoever took control of McMillin's phone and sent out a sexy video in which McMillin reportedly played a starring role, apparently not with his wife.

Had he been an Arkansas legislator, McMillin would have some police recourse. We are one of about two dozen  states with revenge porn statutes that make a crime of distributing pornographic images without the subject's consent.
