Jack Thompson is at it again ladies and gentlemen. This time, he makes the gaming news by sending a lengthy letter to EA’s CEO John Riccitiello, offering his assistance in the publishing giants attempts to purchase BioShock and GTAIV publisher Take-Two.
Referring to Take-Two’s CEO Strauss Zelnik as a Trojan Horse within the company’s corporate walls, Thompson’s letter reads: “I am delighted to work with Electronic Arts to evict the Zelnick Trojan Horse from within Take-Two’s corporate walls. In doing so, I can get the new Take-Two into the clear as to the trouble I and others can send its way.”
“Zelnick is the source of trouble headed Take-Two’s way, not I, and EA can make the case, with my help, that such trouble can be avoided,” he continued.
Yes, that’s exactly what EA’s reputation needs these days – Jack Thompson on its payroll.
Thompson himself faced an ethics trial last December, a process which could ultimately see him disbarred. The judge’s ruling is expected this spring.
