And the award for Hypocrite Of The Century goes to Elliot Spitzer, the governor of New York.
Not long ago this guy was making headlines by condemning the new Grand Theft Auto game for it’s violence and the fact that you can have sex with prostitutes in it. “This is not the kind of image we wish to promote about our city.” he said, referencing the fact that the city in the game is loosely based upon New York.
This week that same morally upright guy has been arrested in connection to a prostitution ring. Federal investigators caught him via a wire tap on his phone, when he made a call arranging for his regular prostitute to travel from New York to Washington while he was on business.
Not something you’d expect from the man who uttered these words;
“We have learned that when self regulation fails, government must step in. We must do more to protect our children from excessive sex and violence in the media. Nothing in New York law stops a fourteen year old from buying a game like Grand Theft Auto which rewards a player for stealing cars and beating people up. Children can even simulate having sex with a prostitute.”
Yeah, that’s nothing like New York eh, whore-monger? Maybe Rockstar Games will send him a fruit basket and a copy of GTA to make him feel better.
