Anthony Weiner’s campaign for New York City mayor got off to an energetic, but bumpy, start this week after his campaign website briefly featured an image of the wrong city’s skyline — instead of showing the Big Apple, the website featured a shot of beautiful Pittsburgh.
A technology firm is taking the blame for the photo mix-up. NGP VAN, which does consulting work for Democratic campaigns, said in a statement that a designer simply used the wrong image.
“This is our fault,” the company said. “NGP VAN acknowledges that the image of the wrong skyline on the placeholder page for the Weiner campaign was our honest mistake, and not that of the Weiner campaign.”
