CA is a two-party consent state
I think Planned Parenthood does good work and I'm glad the asshats who tried to undermine it are getting prosecuted, but two-party consent is not the law the prosecution should be hanging their hat on. Why?
Because in general, two-party consent is bullshit (and CA's assertion of extraterritorial jursidiction over it is even more bullshit). If I'm a party to a conversation I should have the right to record it regardless of the consent -- or indeed, knowledge -- of any other party involved!
Instead, what these people should be prosecuted for is not the act of recording itself, but rather the act of slanderously misrepresenting their findings!
