Stafford Woman Sheds More Light On Lincoln Memorial Vandalism

A Stafford County woman says she was at the Lincoln Memorial a few minutes after it was vandalized last Friday.  Jamie McDaniel says she brought some out-of-town friends to D.C., and they snapped photos of the memorial, and the wet paint someone left in soft drink cans and bottles. McDaniel says she tried to show the U.S. Park Police her pictures of young people who were lurking around the memorial. McDaniel says the Park Police who were assigned to the memorial did not discover the vandalism. The National Park Service says crews will continue their cleanup of the memorial.
