Journal Sentinel: Madison - State officials said Thursday that damage to the marble inside and out the State Capitol would cost an estimated $7.5 million.
Cari Anne Renlund, chief legal counsel for the state Department of Administration, said in Dane County court that estimates of damage to marble includes $6 million to repair damaged marble inside the Capitol, $1 million for damage outside and $500,000 for costs to supervise the damage.
Much of the damage apparently has come from tape used to put up signs and placards at the Capitol.
It was not immediately clear how the estimates were made, though the state is apparently relying on opinions by historical architects, one of whom works for the U.S. Park Service.
One concern is the residue from tape that the state says is causing damage to stone and other surfaces inside the Capitol.
No one should really be surprise. Many of the lefty protesters are rude disrespectful slobs. I am not just saying this like some elitist conservative. Time and time again we have seen video and pictures of their rude behavior, inconsiderate actions and thoughtless littering from various protest.
Remember how the lefties left the mall after Obama's inaugural?
Or the mess they left after the One Nation rally?
Or how about how they treated the Veterans Memorial in the WI Capitol?
Why do they do this you ask? It is because they simply do not believe in any of the institutions unless those institutions serve their purpose. Consider it the end result of living your live by "the ends justify the means".
