Obama Mural In Houston Defaced Again

A mural of President Barack Obama in Houston has been defaced for the second time in last few months, The Houston Chronicle reported on Monday.

The mural, located on the side of a building that served as the Obama campaign’s Houston headquarters, was unveiled in 2008. It was unclear, exactly, when the mural was damaged this weekend. 

From the Chronicle:

Splashes of black and red paint mar the 10-foot portrait of the 44th president in the 3700 block of Travis near West Alabama. The mural had been restored in October just a few days after vandals had defaced it with splashes of paint, also on a Monday.
