(Newser) – Here's today's face-palm moment, courtesy of Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who helpfully, unintentionally, and hysterically promoted the phone number for an adult hotline during a meeting of the Florida Cabinet yesterday, reports WSUF. He apparently got his digits mixed up when trying to direct Floridians to the hotline for information about the state's recent meningitis outbreak. Callers who dialed the mistaken number were greeted by a sexy female voice saying, "Hello boys, thank you for calling me on my anniversary." Needless to say, Scott quickly realized his error and distributed the right number.
