Jefferson Davis monument cleaned up, reward offered

The Jefferson Davis monument at Washington Park has been cleared of graffiti.

Workers were spotted this morning cleaning off the graffiti that had been spray painted on the monument nearly two weeks ago.

“No Trump,” “No KKK” and “No fascist USA” had been written over the monument with red spray paint.

The Jefferson Davis monument was erected in 1926 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. It commemorates the president of the Confederate States of America.

Authorities continue to search for the person or persons responsible for the vandalism.

The Texas division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans sixth brigade is offering a $2,500 reward for the arrest and conviction of the individual or group responsible for defacing.
