Michigan Democratic Lawmakers Target Explicit Video Games

By  | 

Democratic lawmakers and Governor Granholm want Michigan retailers to stop selling a popular video game in which explicit sexual content can be unlocked with an Internet download.

State Senate Democrats say the maker of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" should recall the game and retailers should pull it from their shelves.

The download shows a male and female character engaged in various graphic sexual positions.

The governor has sent a letter to nearly 60 retailers asking them to not sell the game.

Democrats also are criticizing House Republicans for not passing legislation to crack down on the sales of violent or explicit games.

A GOP spokesman says House lawmakers are carefully reviewing the legislation to make sure it can withstand a court challenge.
