image for Florida Congresswoman Hangs Up On Obama

Miami, Florida: When a man sounding remarkably like President-elect Barack Obama placed a call to a Florida congresswoman Wednesday, she just assumed it was another crank call.

So Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen hung up. But, the Miami Herald reports, this was no prank.

"I thought it was one of the radio stations in South Florida playing an incredible, elaborate, terrific prank on me as they've done before," Ros-Lehtinen told the newspaper. "They got Fidel Castro to go along. They've gotten Hugo Chavez and others to fall for their tricks. I said, 'Oh, no, I won't be punked."

"Besides, if I knew it really WAS Obama, I would have blowned my special "Heavy-Breather Whistle" in his big ear before I hung up."
