Recently, a certain high-profile critic of video games accused Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff of being in league with the video game industry.
The attack was based on Shurtleff's participation in a 2006 public service T.V. spot intended to help parents understand the ESRB ratings.
But Shurtleff, who has on occasion been a critic of video game violence, is not the only state attorney general to appear in this type of public service announcement (PSA).
As reported by GamePolitics last August, Georgia's Thurbert Baker (left) also appeared in such a commercial. Baker's spot can be seen on the ESRB website.
