WASHINGTON D.C. (WFLA/NBC) – Vandals defaced the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.
The graffiti was apparently written in red spray pay and discovered at 4:30 a.m.
A crew from the National Park Service worked to remove it.
The complete message is unclear, but it does begin with an expletive.
Another mark of graffiti was found on a sign for the Smithsonian Institution.
United States Park police are investigating the incident.
