Reporters call Hillary Clinton, get phone sex line

The White House accidentally directed reporters to a sex line Thursday.
The White House accidentally directed reporters to a sex line Thursday.

(CNN) – Journalists who dialed in to a White House conference call Thursday hoping for a media-friendly reception got a far friendlier response than they were counting on.

Instead of hearing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor Jim Jones on the other end laying out foreign policy and security threats, reporters were greeted by a recording on a phone sex line.

"Do you have any hidden desires? If you feel like getting nasty, then you came to the right place," said a suggestive-sounding woman.

The White House says an aide merely mistyped the 800-dial in number - a mistake not likely to happen again.

It's a new administration, but an old problem: Some homeowners seeking mortgage relief from a Bush administration hotline in 2007 instead reached a Texas-based group that provides Christian education after President Bush slightly jumbled the correct number at a press briefing.

    Are you sure that's not really Hillary working on domestic affairs to supplement her foreign affairs job?

    I frankly don't see what the problem is. Depending on the category of your personal needs, the cited phone lines provide whatever you called for.

    Get it together white house. Was this some kind of practical joke on Hillary?

    Bush gives the wrong number and you get information about Christian education...fairly benign. A Clinton gets the number wrong and you get a phone sex line. The jokes write themselves here.
