Anti-GTA governor caught up prostitute "ring"


New York Governor Eliot "Lick and" Spitzer has been caught allegedly spending $4,300 for a hooker to travel from New York to meet him in Washington for some wholesome family fun. Apparently, Spitzer was "Client 9" in a prostitution ring, a supposed fact that's delighted the internet, especially considering he made some blatant anti-GTA comments in his 2006 election campaign.

"Media content has gotten more graphic, more violent and more sex-based," he said at the time. "Currently, nothing under New York State law prohibits a 14 year old from walking into a video store and 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."

Eliot, Eliot, Eliot. You're in the shit now, aren't you son?
