The U.S. Park Police in Washington say the Lincoln Memorial is temporarily closed after someone splattered green paint on the statue and the floor area.
Police say the apparent vandalism was discovered early this morning.
No words, letters, or symbols were visible in the paint.
Police say the memorial will be closed until a maintenance crew can finish cleaning up the paint this morning.
