You guys remember Leland Yee, right? The California Senator that made a name for himself in the game industry by jumping on board the "video games make kids violent" crazy train. The guy that sponsored a "restricted game sales" bill, signed into law by the Governator, that was later dismissed as unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court. Yeah. Well THAT guy has plead guilty to racketeering charges for accepting bribes, extorting money, and offering to smuggle weapons from the Phillipines. He did all of that to secure financing for his failed Mayoral and Secretary of State campaigns. Yee faces up to 20 years in federal prison, a fine of $25,000, restitution, and even deportation.[more info]
It's not exactly irony. But, it's damn funny. I just want to know, if he believes video games make kids violent, what game was HE playing?
