The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Utah Senate President Michael Waddoups may be looking into prosecuting crusading crusader Jack Thompson under the federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 over email harassment. The last straw was apparently an Easter morning email containing a lap dance screenshot from Grand Theft Auto IV that Thompson sent as part of his efforts at overturning the veto of the Utah games bill he helped author. "I asked you before to remove me from your mailing list," Waddoups replied to Thompson, saying, "I supported your bill but because of the harassment will not again. If I am not removed, I will turn you over to the AG for legal action." There is also a post about this on the Utah Senate Site Website (thanks GamePolitics) where the author of the post apparently opened his copy of the mail in church on his Blackberry. As usual, Thompson's response indicates that people just don't understand that his actions are eternally above reproach: "As disturbing as the image is, it's something an adult ought to be able to handle looking at. There are two women who are clad and a guy's looking at them," they quote Thompson saying. "I would love to be being tried criminally for writing a state senator an e-mail with something he thinks is pornographic but who is not offended by the fact that children can buy this."
