WASHINGTON Green paint has been found splattered on another Washington landmark - the National Cathedral.

Cathedral spokesman Richard Weinberg says the paint was discovered Monday afternoon. He says the paint was still wet, leading officials to believe the vandalism had just occurred.

U.S. Park police are also investigating the discovery of green paint on the statue of Joseph Henry, outside the headquarters of the Smithsonian Institution. Henry was the Smithsonian's first secretary.

Park police are not sure whether the vandalism is connected.

At the cathedral, the paint was strewn over the organ console in Bethlehem Chapel, the oldest portion of the cathedral, which was completed in 1912.

On Friday, green paint was found on the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall. Crews are still working to remove the paint.
