Nebraska lawmaker says case against Husker player illustrates need for bill banning 'revenge porn'

LINCOLN — An Omaha lawmaker said Tuesday that the allegations against Nebraska running back Maurice Washington illustrate the need to ban “revenge porn” in Nebraska.

State Sen. Megan Hunt would do just that with Legislative Bill 164, which she introduced along with five co-sponsors.

The bill would outlaw the sharing of sexual images or videos without the consent of the person depicted and with the intent of causing that person substantial emotional harm or financial loss.

After the Washington charges broke, Hunt tweeted:

“Cases like this is why I brought LB 164, NE’s first bill to ban revenge pornography, sharing intimate photos without someone’s consent. I support a full investigation of this very serious offense, and I will work to bring Nebraskans the same protection against revenge porn.”
