WASHINGTON — The National Park Service says the cleanup at the Lincoln Memorial is complete, 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. She says the preservation team has removed all of the paint.
The scaffolding around the memorial also has been removed.
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.
