Bogus Palin posters at UNR have sex line number

University of Nevada, Reno officials want to know who is behind phony fliers advertising an appearance by former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Calling the number listed for ticket information connects to a telephone sex line.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reported UNR officials issued an apology Wednesday, calling the obvious prank distasteful.

The flier falsely claims that Palin is coming to the campus May 25 to speak in the Joe Crowley Student Union’s Grand Ballroom on “the role of feminism in modern politics.”

It bears UNR’s logo at the top and says the talk would be presented by the UNR and the Associated Students of the University of Nevada.
