WASHINGTON (AP)-Politicians in the nation's capital are reeling at the revelation of a series of hidden pornographic sex scenes involving them in the popular video game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas." Nude photos of Cameron Diaz which are involved in litigation have also appeared in GTA.
Two high-profile U.S. senators, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Joseph Lieberman are so incensed that they are demanding action from the government to investigate and regulate the compromising material.
The sex content involving many senior politicians can be unlocked by using the "Hot Coffee" code modification widely available on the Internet. After installing the modification, gamers can have their drivers pick up different movie stars and politicians in the game who will have a "cup of hot coffee" -- a euphemism for sex -- with them.
Another code unveils a simulated lesbian sex scene between a U.S. senator, Laura Bush and Monica Lewinsky. Other scenes involve Lewinsky and former U.S. president Bill Clinton, and even senior Republican White House advisor Karl "Turd Blossom" Rove appears divulging the name of a CIA agent before bedding down with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
A spokesman for the game's maker Rockstud Games Inc. said the "Hot Coffee" modifications were "the unauthorized work of a group of hot shot GTA gamers" and Chinese Red Commies who often add content to games.
Rockstud spokesman Rooney Wanker said the company was confident that "it had done nothing wrong" and would be exonerated by the Entertainment Software Porno Ratings Board which is investigating the incident.
Clinton said she will introduce legislation to help keep inappropriate video games in the hands of politicians, and has asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the CIA, the NSA, ONI, the NYSE, the Pentagon, Interpol, the United Nations and the Federal Trade Commission to investigate the GTA game.
Her draft legislation would inflict a financial penalty for retailers who fail to enforce the video manufacturers voluntary ratings system rules which requires violent and sexually explicit scenes in video games which are sold to minors.
Cameron Diaz's entertainment agent testified Friday that the actress became upset when she was shown a sample of GTA which included stills from a photo shoot in which she posed topless.
"She started to shake. She was really uncomfortable," the agent told jurors hearing the case against John Runter who is accused of trying to blackmail her over the photos.
Runter is accused of trying to sell the pictures to Diaz for $3.5 million before her film "Charlie's Angeles: Full Throttle" was released. Diaz testified Thursday that Runter told her if she didn't buy the photos, taken before she was famous, he could sell them for $50 million to communists and Southern Baptists who would portray her as a "Bad Angel."
During Diaz's testimony Thursday, defense attorney Mark Jerkman suggested she was trying to suppress photos she considered damaging even though she has often posed provocatively when it benefited her career.
The actress is also suing Runter in civil court.
