Looks like Lin-Manuel Miranda may be an even more convincing Alexander Hamilton than we thought.

A 30-year-old former investment banker who challenged New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler for his U.S. House seat mistakenly attributed a quote from the hit Broadway musical Hamilton to the founding father himself during a debate on WYNC’s The Brian Lehrer Show on Monday.

“As Alexander Hamilton says, ‘This is not a moment, this is the movement,’ ” Oliver Rosenberg said while debating Nadler, according to Gothamist. ” ‘Foes oppose us. We take an honest stand. We roll like Moses claiming our promised land.’ Rise up, rise up and vote.”

Unfortunately for Rosenberg, the rousing quote came not from Hamilton, the political figure but rather from Miranda, the creator of the Broadway musical phenomenon Hamilton.

The flub came one day before Rosenberg lost to Nadler by a landslide in the Tuesday primary.

So much for that movement.
