'President' Mitt Romney victory website mistakenly goes live

In a post-election mistake, a draft of website designed in case Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romeny won on Tuesday night went live for a few moments, reports the Huffington Post.

The site for “President Elect” Mitt Romney was designed by Solution Stream Creative, which told the Huffington Post it had been hired about 10 days before the election.

“I’m excited about our prospects as a nation. My priority is putting people back to work in America,” read the website.

Traffic slowed the site to a crawl and it was eventually pulled down shortly after it was discovered Wednesday, but not before multiple bloggers were able to grab screenshots of the webpage that will never be.
