PORTLAND, Maine – Callers looking for a Maine congressional candidate’s campaign office are instead directed to a phone sex line, thanks to a phone book mistake.

The latest Talking Phonebook for the Portland area lists a toll-free number for Republican 1st District candidate Charlie Summers’ campaign office in Saco.

But when people call the number, they are greeted by a woman’s voice inviting them to call another toll-free number, which turns out to be phone sex line.

Summers told WGME-TV that the Talking Phonebook picked up one of his old campaign numbers by mistake.

A Talking Phonebook spokesman said the company will remove the number from its Web site and from future editions of the paper phone book.
