(Newser) – An Indonesian lawmaker has resigned after being caught watching pornography in the same chamber where he helped pass tough anti-porn legislation. Arifinto of the Islamic Prosperous Justice Party was filmed by a journalist as he looked through explicit images during a session of parliament, the BBC reports. He said he had inadvertently clicked on an email link that led him to the images. Critics want to see him prosecuted under his party's law. Arifinto is now asking for forgiveness from God.
