When you see the words Clinton and sex in the same headline it’s hard not to assume it’s Bill. But alas it is Hillary who has her jock in a wad over the “Hot Coffee” mod of the PC version of GTA: San Andreas. Basically what the mod does is that it lets the main character participate in a graphic depiction of simulated sex acts.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is calling on federal regulators to investigate the latest version of Grand Theft Auto, a popular video game series that allows players to go on simulated crime sprees.
In a letter she is sending Thursday to the Federal Trade Commission, the New York Democrat expresses concern over reports that anyone who uses a free code downloaded over the Internet can unlock sexually graphic images hidden inside the game, called “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”
Clinton asked the commission to determine “the source of this content,” especially since the game can fall into the hands of young people. The game industry’s self-policing unit, the Entertainment Software Rating Board, is investigating whether the maker of the game violated the industry rule requiring “full disclosure of pertinent content.”
Clinton also asked the commission to look into whether the industry erred in giving the game a rating of M, or mature, for players 17 years and older. National electronics store chains sell M-rated games but tend to avoid adult-only titles.
She asked the commission to determine whether retailers were adequately enforcing the ratings. Citing statistics released by the National Institute on Media and the Family, she said that 50 percent of boys between 7 and 14 were able to buy M-rated video games.
“Parents who rely on the ratings to make decisions to shield their children from influences that they believe could be harmful should be informed right away if the system is broken,” she said.
As usual, she’s just another clueless legislator who knows nothing about video games. Here’s the thing. One, as far as I know, it’s only the PC version of the game. Secondly according to this article…
Hackers created the ‘Hot Coffee’ modification by disassembling and then combining, recompiling and altering the game’s source code,” the statement explains.
And lastly, at least one of the characters is fully clothed.
Yet she wants to throw federal tax dollars at an investigation into a hack that the creators of the game are not responsible for.
And again this is coming from a member of the party that supposedly is all about free expression. Remember kids; the Democrats want to take away your video games.
