Hillary Clinton to Address GTA: San Andreas
Hillary Clinton, former First Lady, current New York Senator, and possible 2008 presidential candidate, is expected to hold a press conference tomorrow in response to allegations of the “Hot Coffee” mod in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PC. The game is also available for Sony’s PlayStation 2 and Microsoft’s Xbox.
A statement from her office read, “following recent reports revealing that the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has graphic pornographic content which may be unlocked by following instructions on the Internet, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will hold a press conference to discuss legislative solutions to keep inappropriate video game content out of the hands of young people.”
Other people, not just state and national politicians, are weighing into the debate as well. “While San Andreas is already full of violent behavior and sexual themes, the pornographic sex scenes push it over the edge,” said David Walsh, founder of The Minneapolis-based National Institute on the Media and the Family, which issued a “nationwide parental alert” Friday.
