Governor's Slip Sends Radio Callers To X-Rated Line
September 21, 2009 at 4:54 AM (PT)
MINNESOTA Governor TIM PAWLENTY gave out the wrong number for listeners to call in to his CBS RADIO Talk WCCO-A/MINNEAPOLIS show on FRIDAY, and the slip sent callers to a phone sex line.
WCCO reports that PAWLENTY, on his weekly "GOOD MORNING MINNESOTA" show, told listeners to dial the wrong prefix -- 800 instead of 866 -- and that was enough to give callers a very different "good time" than they may have expected.
PAWLENTY's office issued a statement explaining, "It was a simple mistake, and he corrected himself later."
