Wrong Number: Calls to Capitol Get Sexy Retort

Residents of Cecil County who have used the local phone book to call the governor's offices have been treated to a rude awakening:

"Mmmm ..... ," the recorded voice on the other line says. "Hi, sexy, welcome to Erotic Innocence, where sexy young girls come to play."

Definitely not Gov. Martin O'Malley's secretary.

It turns out the 1-800 number listed for both O'Malley (D) and Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown (D) in the latest editions of some Cecil County phone books have been misprinted. A simple typo, it seems.

The number connects callers to a phone sex service. ($1.99 per minute, in case you were wondering.)

"Barely legal babes," the voice continues. "They're waiting for you. We'll do anything you want."

The mistake became public when the Cecil Whig reported in recent days that resident Pete Pritchard tried to call O'Malley's office with an opinion about the mortgage foreclosure debate.

Armstrong Telephone Co., which prints the phone books each November, said it will mail a correction message to all customers with their February bills, company spokeswoman Donna Graybeal said.

O'Malley spokeswoman Christine Hansen said there is no reason for constituents to worry.

"It was an error on behalf of the phone company," Hansen said. "We'll make sure that it's taken care of."
