NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - The day Anthony Weiner took his campaign for mayor to the streets of New York, folks visiting his website might’ve been a bit confused as to which city he wanted to lead.

His official website, which contains his announcement video, featured an image of a skyline at the top of the page.

The problem is that the skyline was Pittsburgh.

The image depicted a view from Pittsburgh’s Roberto Clemente bridge.
