Weiner Mayor: Why Does Anthony Weiner's NYC Mayor Website Have Photos Of Pittsburgh On It?

Even politicians with a campaign staff make some surprising mistakes. Anthony Weiner's recent campaign site banner is the most recent goof:

 

In the above photo we can see that the banner contains some nice buildings, bridges, and skyscrapers. These structures are located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It's a great image ... except Weiner is actually running for mayor of New York City, New York. Expectedly, social media has quickly picked up on this story:

Weiner previously served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives (D-New York). However, Weiner resigned in 2011 after a sexting scandal. This recent mistake may help diverge some attention from his previous scandal.

As Brendan Behan, poet and novelist, once said, "There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary." I don't know if I completely agree with that statement, but Weiner's most recent slip up is just a funny mistake that will undoubtedly be joked about for the next few days.
