Lincoln Memorial vandalized with green paint
A patrol officer found the green-paint splattering about 1:20 a.m., CBS reported. The paint can be seen on the floor and at the base of the statute, which depicts our nation’s 16th president sitting in a chair.
Police say they will tap surveillance video to identify who’s to blame. The memorial, located on the National Mall, will be closed until Park Service workers can clean the paint, CBS reported.
