Video Voyeurs

Anyone thinking of taking a peeping-Tom-type photo with their camera phone better avoid the temptation while on federal property, whether in a national park or on a Navy ship.

President Bush is expected to sign a bill providing stern punishment for anyone on federal property caught sneaking photos or videos of unwilling victims' naked or underwear-covered private parts. Conviction could mean a year in jail and a fine up to $100,000.

Lawmakers say the problem really began with small digital cameras. The ease of taking pictures with phones has made the situation worse. The clandestine photos can be taken and posted on a global Web site in a matter of minutes.
