The Lincoln Memorial has reopened after someone splattered green paint on the statue of the 16th president.
The monument reopened Friday evening after being closed all day while workers washed away the paint.
Park Police said the apparent vandalism was discovered around 1:30 a.m. Friday on the statue, the pedestal and the floor. No words, letters or symbols were visible in the paint.
The marble Lincoln statute had green paint on its shin, coattail, chair and base, as well as paint on the floor of the memorial building.
