Oregon Voter Hotline Leads to Phone Sex Line Instead

In Election 2008, Humor, Oregon, Politics on May 4, 2008 at 2:36 pm

You want to know why Oregon has a record turn out in voting? You would think it’s because they have a mail-in ballot option; however, I think I’ve found another reason… ;-)

from Stateline.org:

Oregonians who called a voter-information hotline recommended by Oregon Secretary of State Bill Bradbury reached a different sort of hotline — the kind that offers “an exciting new way to go live, one-on-one, with hot, horny girls” for just $2.99 a minute (99 cents for voice mails). The glitch came when Bradbury’s office accidentally switched the correct 866 toll-free area code to an 800 area code, The Oregonian reports. Bradbury released an apology statement and emphasized, “Don’t call that wrong number.”
