Mitt Romney Team accidentally releases victory website after he officially lost

Wednesday after Election Day, Roll Call’s Political Wire posted screen grabs of some of the pages from the website that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan would have released had they won the election.

The homepage of the site has a seal of “The Office of the President Elect” and had a quote on the top signed by President-Elect Mitt Romney.

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

It shows links to information about the would-be inauguration (taking place in Washington, DC on January 21, 2013) and his vision of a “smaller, simpler, smarter” America.

There are three other pages, titled “Join the Administration”, “The President-Elect” which goes into further detail about the inauguration, and “The Nominees” which briefly describes the process of electing a cabinet.

Unfortunately for political junkies, the nominees page cuts off before any actual nominees are identified, so the page does not give any true insight into the way that the Romney-Ryan team would have proceeded with their transition.

Political Wire does not explain how they found the site or how long it was live, only saying that it was taken down quickly.
