Thanks, Gov, but when you said hotline we didn't think you meant THAT hot!

Check this out for embarrassing.

Florida Governor Rick Scott made a slight error. Wanting to be helpful, he gave out a toll-free hotline number during his cabinet meeting so that people seeking information concerning the meningitis outbreak had a place to call right there in Florida.

As always, PBS was watching, so station WUSF posted the number on its website.

Uh-oh!

Wrong number.

When people tried to use the number they got a phone sex hotline.

Makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Where'd he get that other number? :-)

You folks must be reforming or something. Normally that question would have drawn a lot of wisecracks. :-)

Tom, It's almost too easy...but.....he probably had the number on speed dial....the people that called the number got more accurate and honest information than they ever would from any governmental agency.

Thanks, Rex. I needed a good laugh this morning.

".....the people that called the number got more accurate and honest information than they ever would from any governmental agency."

Amen to that!

Although, come to think of it, I've just finished an autobiography of David Brinkley, and according to what he says, if there were a hotline to the White House or Congress you could french fry with your telephone. But then I suppose that's a part of executive privilege.
