Sandusky Lawyer Accidentally Tells Reporters to Dial Gay Sex Hotline

"Just 99 cents per minute."

The entire Jerry Sandusky scandal has been bizarre, with new tragic and horrendous allegations popping up at every turn. This morning, Joe Amendola, Sandusky's attorney, gave a curious address to reporters following a preliminary hearing (a hearing that Sandusky canceled at the last minute). In it, Amendola inadvertently instructed members of the media to phone a gay sex hot-line. Allow me to explain.

Amendola discussed his doubts surrounding Mike McQueary, the graduate assistant who allegedly saw Sandusky raping a child. The lawyer said that McQueary's claim that he told Joe Paterno and two university administrators about the incident, and that no one subsequently did anything viable to address it, is questionable.

To anyone who buys into this version of what occurred at Penn State, the lawyer said, "I suggest you dial 1-800-REALITY." Clearly, this was a statement made in jest to make a point -- that Amendola doesn't believe (or that he wants to cast doubt on) McQueary's version of events.

Watch Amendola sarcastically suggest that reporters call the phone line:

Tommy Craggs and Dom Cosentino of Deadspin.com thought it would be fun to call the number to see if it's in operation. So, they did and boy were they surprised by what they found. Upon calling, they were greeted with the following message (they posted the audio here):

"Hey guys, welcome to the hottest place for triple-X action. Get ready for bulging, bursting pleasure with [redacted]. Just 99 cents per minute."

Considering the nature of the allegations against Sandusky, you can file this one under "ironically embarrassing."
