Homeland Security: Phoning it In

Delaware Governor Ruth Ann Minner (D-DE) (left) has a hotline to the federal Deparment of Homeland Security.

Thing is, the only people who ever use it are telemarketers -- calling her.

She says other Governors around the country have told her they have the same problem. It's got them wondering just how secure the line is. She still gets the calls -- even after the DHS put the numbers in the federal "Do Not Call" registery.

Reporters tried calling the Department of Homeland Security for comments, but no one called back. Maybe the lines were busy. Or maybe DHS was listening to a great sales pitch on how they could save on their long distance service! (The News Journal)
