Pawlenty Accidentally Gives Out Phone Sex Hotline Number On His Radio Show

Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) had a bit of a blooper on his weekly radio show — when giving out the number to call into his show, he accidentally gave the number of a phone-sex hotline.

The problem here was that he used an 800 area code, when the actual number was 866.

I wouldn’t be too quick to laugh at Pawlenty, though, as I’ve personally made this exact same mistake myself. And for the record, I was trying to call a news company.
