MINEOLA, N.Y. - Talk about your wrong number. An effort to provide constituents with a hotline number that helps track the location of sexual predators backfired for a group of Long Island politicians when they mistakenly listed a telephone number that connects callers to a sex chat line.

"Hey there, sexy guy," a sultry recorded female voice is heard telling callers to the wrong number. "Welcome to an exciting new way to go live, one on one, with hot horny girls waiting right now to talk to you."

That's not what Nassau County Legislator Peter J. Schmitt and seven colleagues intended when they sent out postcards to constituents announcing an initiative with the Long Island-based Parents for Megan's Law, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and treatment of sex abuse.

"Apparently there was an error in the phone number," Ed Ward, a spokesman for the lawmakers acknowledged.

The politicians advertised a "1-800" toll free number when it should have been "1-888," Ward said.

"The intent was to alert homeowners and parents to join the Parents for Megan's Law e-mail alert program," Ward said. "They could go on the computer and get an alert if a sex offender lives on their block or in their neighborhood."

Laura Ahearn, the executive director of the Megan's Law group, was not upset.

"It is a common mistake that is made," Ahearn said. "We just hope no one was inconvenienced."

Oh man that is hilarious. What are the chances that hte phone number is exactly the same as a sex chat line save for the toll free prefix.
