Picture of the Day: The New Sign Outside Weiner's Old Office

Anthony Weiner officially resigned from the House of Representatives this week, and today his name has disappeared from the wall outside his former office. This sign now adorns office 2104 of the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill.

Weiner represented New York's Ninth Congressional District, but history is sometimes blurred by time, and Weiner was, at least as of this photo's snapping, remembered as having represented the "Nineth" district instead. We hope the typo has been corrected, especially since red pen may not show up so well on the dark brown sign.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is likely to set Sept. 13 as the date for a special election to replace Weiner, sources told NBC New York's Andrew Siff.
