EDGARTOWN: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is advising fellow Democrats to change their cellphone numbers and not let family members read their text messages after personal and official information of Democratic House members and congressional staff was posted online.

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.
