A flier sent by Michigan Democrats — featuring a photo of presidential contender Barack Obama and urging voters to submit an absentee ballot application — includes a telephone number connecting callers to a phone sex line.

State party spokeswoman Liz Kerr said Tuesday a typo on the flier from the Michigan Democratic State Central Committee directed people with questions to call an incorrect number. Kerr says the party apologizes for the misprint.

The error was reported by WJBK-TV in Detroit.

The flier included two absentee ballot applications, as well as photos of Democratic U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, who is seeking re-election, and Diane Hathaway, the party's nominee for the Michigan Supreme Court.
