"Like all parents, I know it is increasingly difficult to protect our children from negative influences… 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."

These were the words of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer during a 2006 campaign, which were followed by criticism aimed at Grand Theft Auto for its depiction of sex with prostitutes. Spitzer may hate fantasy prostitution, but he seems to love the real thing -- as he was all about the whores until the cops uncovered his dirty business.

The game hating politician was recently busted for his sordid shenanigans, uncovered as "Client 9" to an international prostitute ring. He was caught on a wiretap organizing himself a big fat delivery of paid-for sex, arranging for a lady of the night to travel from New York to Washington, where he was staying. It seems that sex is perfectly dandy if you pay for the act itself, and not a digital representation of it. After all, it was Spitzer who said:

"Media content has gotten more graphic, more violent and more sex-based ... Currently, nothing under New York State law prohibits a fourteen-year old from walking into a video store and buyin ... 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 ..."

You're right, Mr. Spitzer. Let's not waste $60 pretending to have sex when we can spend an alleged $4300 for the real thing. You lying, hypocritical jackass.
