Political callers unexpectedly hear sex chat offer

September 18, 2008 10:03:55 AM PDT
Some callers trying reach the Sussex County Democratic organization have instead been connected to a phone sex service. That's due to a misprint in a recently released telephone book from Embarq, which serves some towns in the western part of the state.

The Democratic organization's 800 number was correct in the book's yellow pages.

But callers who used the listing in the white pages heard a sultry female voice inviting them to call another number where they could pay for "hot" sex chat.

Glenn Lewis, an Embarq spokesman, told The New Jersey Herald of Newton that the company learned of the error on Wednesday. He said a transposition error caused the last three digits of the Democrats' phone number to be misprinted.

He said the listing has been corrected in Embarq's directory assistance database.
