NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Former Rep. Anthony Weiner launched his campaign for mayor of New York City this week, but his website seems to indicate he is running for office in Pittsburgh.

The stylized and colorized image used in the "Weiner for Mayor" banner shows a bridge and a skyline.

But that's not New York.

The picture is of the Roberto Clemente Bridge in the Steel City, according to several Tweets and blog posts.

I wonder if he can beat Bill Paduto? Why not? One more jagoff will not make much of a difference.

Pittsburgh or NYC?

Maybe his staff should just take a poll.
So hes not left just hanging out there unsupported.
either way I suspect his potential is very, very small.

Plenty of Pennsylvania cities would welcome Weiner:

Blue Ball, Bird-in-Hand, Bareville, Mount Joy, Beaver, Climax, Jugtown, Intercourse ...

Hey, we just had a primary for Democrat mayor candidate here in Pittsburgh.

Wagner - would have turned Pittsburgh into Chicago.

Peduto - will turn Pittsburgh into Detroit.

Pittsburgh hasn't had a Republican mayor since 1933 (Charles Kline). Under Kline, the city grew, industry expanded and dahntahn flourished.

Kline was accused of some kind of malfeasance back in 1933 - something about a rug. - the Democrats were the same as they are now.

There is a small town of about 15 people named Oscar in Oklahoma. Perhaps he could move there an run for Mayor. Imagine it, Oscar’s Mayor Weiner.

oh, Gawd, the wonky-leftie-greenie candidate who just won the Dem Primary, and will almost certainly be Mayor, is bad enough.

PLEASE don’t send Anthony Weiner down here!

Though you can see why Hollyweird comes here when they want to shoot a place that looks like New York at 1/3 the price.

Supreme Leader of Elbonia would be a more appropriate position for Weiner to campaign for.

Weiner must like the Penguins. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword.

Love the first Harlem interview. They’re talking about his acceptance by the crowd and if people will vote for him. The first woman interviewed said “I don’t know I’d have to see what he puts forward.” Hey lady, that’s what got him in trouble in the first place.
