Vandals paint anti-government graffiti on L.A. City Hall

L.A. City Hall graffiti
Even though the Occupy movement has long since been evicted, a sign of discontent with the status quo popped up Wednesday morning at City Hall.

Overnight, an unknown person spray-painted an obscenity on the north side of the building directed at the government, although the disgruntled person misspelled "government." The peace sign and the word "love" also defaced the building.

City employees are in the process of removing the graffiti and the incident is under investigation, said Peter Sanders, a spokesman for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

City Hall grounds are patrolled at night, Sanders said.
