Anthony Weiner's Campaign Website Featured Picture Of Pittsburgh

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.

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