Jefferson Davis Monument vandalized for second night in a row

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC/ WVEC) — For the second night in a row, the Jefferson Davis statue on Monument Avenue in Richmond was vandalized.

The red graffiti on the statue reads, “Racist BAN KKK.”

This comes 24 hours after the statue was spray painted in red with the word, “Racist.”

No arrests have been made, but the city reports that more than $12,000 has been spent on cleaning vandalized monuments since 2015.

Earlier this week, Norfolk's Confederate monument was also spray painted with graffiti
