The website for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) appeared to have mistakenly posted a photo of Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) in a biography for conservative activist Dr. Ben Carson, both of whom are scheduled to be speakers at the event this week.
A screengrab of the mixup tweeted by Washington Post reporter Ben Terris on Wednesday morning showed that, at least on the CPAC mobile site, Carson’s entry displayed Scott’s portrait.
Whoops… Looks like the CPAC mobile app has confused @SenatorTimScott for @RealBenCarson pic.twitter.com/bevHJRzx0g

By shortly after 9 a.m. ET on Wednesday, when TPM reviewed the website, the error appeared to have been corrected:
CPAC did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TPM on Wednesday morning.
Scott replied, with some fun, to Terris’s tweet a few hours later on Wednesday:
.@bterris you missed this one from earlier this year. #TakingOver pic.twitter.com/nif6m7GOxC

Later that day, CPAC told TPM that the image in question was a photoshop.
