GTA critic NY Gov. Spitzer resigns over prostitution connection

Just in case mainstream media isn't your thing, New York governor Eliot "Client 9" Spitzer resigned yesterday over his use of a high-priced prostitution service. FBI wiretaps detailed Client 9 haggling over payment and arrangements, not to mention his kinks -- but this is a family site. Spitzer's been on the video game media radar a few times for taking the moral high ground with false or misleading information.

GamePolitics has the money quote from Client 9's 2006 election campaign, where he exclaimed, "Media content has gotten more graphic, more violent and more sex-based ... Children can even simulate having sex with a prostitute." Children may simulate it, but the ex-governor actually did it! Maybe now he'll start playing GTA to recapture the feeling.
