Phone Sex Meningitis Hotline

Florida Governor Gives Out Phone Sex Number In Place Of Meningitis Hotline

Florida Governor Rick Scott accidentally gave out a phone sex number in place of the toll-free meningitis hotline, according to WUSF News. In order to keep people up-to-date about the meningitis outbreak, the Department of Health set up a phone number for concerned citizens to stay abreast of any breaking news surrounding the situation. Unfortunately for people looking for some information, they ended up with quite the sexy surprise.

Instead of getting the meningitis hotline, unsuspecting callers were treated to a sultry voice thanking the individual for calling the young lady on her anniversary. Once you press a series of numbers indicating that you’d like to continue, phone sex shenanigans can properly begin. However, this obviously wasn’t what folks concerned about the meningitis outbreak were looking for when they placed the call.

Reuters reports that the snafu began at a recent Florida Cabinet meeting. Instead of giving Florida residents the number for the aforementioned meningitis hotline, Governor Rick Scott accidentally misread the number, sending shocked citizens to the phone sex line. Only when the number was posted to the Florida Department of Health website did an eagle-eyed reader discover the mistake.

Jackie Schutz, Scott’s spokeswoman, explained that the governor accidentally misread the number at the meeting of the Florida Cabinet, resulting in the ensuing confusion. Although the governor did correct the mistake later in the meeting, apparently nobody thought to change the number on the website.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Wednesday that 138 people have contracted meningitis since the outbreak began. Presently, 12 people have died from the condition, including one individual in Florida. There are now thought to be at least a total of six cases in Florida, all of which are contained within Marion County.

Although phone sex lines, while archaic in today’s age, do serve their purpose, chances are this wasn’t the sort of assistance folks were looking for when phoning what they thought was a meningitis hotline.
