Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi has received harassing calls and messages since a leak of phone numbers of Democratic lawmakers.

Pelosi says in a letter to Democrats that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has hired a cybersecurity firm to investigate the hacking of the committee’s computers.


Pelosi says that since cellphone numbers have been posted online, she’s received scores of harassing calls. She describes them as “mostly obscene and sick calls, voicemails and text messages.”

She advises lawmakers not to let family members answer their cellphones or read incoming text messages.
