Oh Rockstar, what have you gotten yourself into this time? Oh, right. Nothing.

According to GamePolitics, Connecticut State Senator Gayle Slossberg has been straining her eyes – and her delicate, non-gaming thumbs – in order to find GTA IV’s porno-worthy rape scene. Er, what?

From a newspaper story in the New Haven Advocate:

“[Sen. Slossberg] wants confirmation of the rumored rape scene in Grand Theft Auto IV—but she can’t reach that level of the game. The Milford state senator’s never played GTA, but she fears it’s corrupting the youth and thinks a law requiring better warning labels might be the fix… Slossberg hints she’ll… introduce legislation next session calling for clearer labeling of depraved video games like Grand Theft Auto… Slossberg’s a bit unsure of how the warning labels might read: ‘I mean what would it say, This game will make you a sociopath?’”

Tax payers’ money at work there, folks.
