Weiner’s Website Had Picture Of Pittsburgh Skyline, Not NYC

The rollout of former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY) New York City mayoral bid hit a snag Thursday when it was revealed that his campaign website featured a picture of the Pittsburgh skyline, The Hill reported.

Weiner’s team ultimately changed the image to a familiar shot of the NYC skyline when bloggers and reporters pointed out that the original picture included a prominent Pittsburgh bridge and the BNY Mellon Center, one of the largest buildings in the Steel City.

NGP VAN, the company that created Weiner’s website, said in a statement provided to The Hill that it takes responsibility for the error.
