Pol Who Wanted Warning Labels on Violent Games Loses Re-Election

U.S. Rep. Joe Baca, who had long wanted cigarette-style warning labels slapped on violent video games, won't be headed back to Capitol Hill. He lost re-election yesterday in a redistricting arrangement which had him pitted against a fellow Democrat for a seat in a differently-numbered district.

Baca, a seven-term incumbent, sought three times, unsuccessfully, to have video games labeled with a violence warning akin to the warnings one sees on packs of cigarettes. All three efforts died in committee.
