I know Pittsburgh is taking over the world, but this is ridiculous

From the Anthony Weiner for Mayor Campaign (in NEW YORK CITY) is this


Look at the blue....  Someone is taking the Pittsburgh as Gotham thing a bit too far.

Spreading through the twitterverse right now.  I have no idea who spotted this, but h/t to Burghdiaspora.

update:  For the pseudo-record, I believe the first public notice of this is from one @rlampasone  in this tweet last evening.   This all has gotten out of hand with national media weighing in on the grand indiscretion.    I am unclear if this is all because the world remains fascinated by all things Yinzer or Weiner notoriety.  A tempest of both I suppose.  Anyway, he has changed the image finally.

If people are looking for reasons to vote against him, I'd also like to add that his video starts playing when you open the page. I can't think of anything else he might have done to discourage voters.

Guess he figured he try the bridge imagery, since it worked so well for Peduto.

Seems like this is a trend among NYC mayoral hopefuls, anybody remember Ed Koch's "Where's Pittsburgh?" ole Sophie Masloff had to give the poor guy a map!

Hopefully this is the all-time peak for articles mentioning both Pittsburgh and sexting.
