As expected yesterday, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) called for a federal investigation into possible "graphic content" located on Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas video game.

In a letter dated Thursday to Federal Trade Commission chairwoman Deborah Platt Majoras, she specifically asked the FTC to probe how users of the game can access "graphic pornographic and violent content" for the game from the Internet, and to examine whether the game's rating of "M" for mature should be changed to an "Adults Only" rating.

"There is no doubting the fact that the widespread availability of sexually explicit and graphically violent video games makes the challenge of parenting much harder," Clinton said in the letter.
