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.

    maybe it was Hillary, being provocative, to hold their attention. Reporters are easily bored.

    Back in college we used to play the 800 number game... we would call random 800 numbers to see if we could actually reach anything that wasn't porn-related. About 99.9% of the time, it was. Which makes the 2007 Bush case highly suspect, statistically speaking.

    I think they got the right number. I think Hillary was remembering them days back in the White House and wanted to get her some now that Bill has had his. Get some of that ex First Lady Lovin lol.

    Hilarious! "Do you have any hidden desires?" Uh none, that are a matter of national security or anything that the State Dept should be concerned about. Thank you..
