Lincoln Memorial Vandalism Cleanup Wrapping Up

by AP posted Aug 16 2013 10:31AM
     WASHINGTON (AP) - The National Park Service says the cleanup is wrapping up at the Lincoln Memorial, three weeks after the statue was vandalized with green paint. 
 
     Park service spokeswoman Carol Johnson says the final treatment to remove the last stubborn traces of paint from the monument was washed off Friday morning and the scaffolding around the memorial is expected to come down later in the day.
 
     A woman charged with defacing chapels at the National Cathedral with paint is also suspected in the vandalism of the memorial and other sites. Jiamei Tian was released to a limited detention facility earlier this month.
