Gov. O'Malley vandalized

Gov. O'Malley billboard defaced

Official: ” It's an improvement if you ask me
Apparently, somebody in Baltimore isn't a fan of Governor Martin O'Malley.

A large billboard welcoming tourists arriving for the Preakness has been defaced.

Robert Murrow, a spokesman for the city's Department of Public Works, saw the vandalism as he drove to work this morning on I-83 near the Guilford Avenue exit. He called The Sun, saying that someone had poured paint on the image of O'Malley's face.
"It looks like they took globs of paint and threw it on his face. It looks great. It did my heart good," said Murrow, who admittedly is not an O'Malley fan.

Kurt L. Kocher, chief spokesman for the city's Department of Public Works and Murrow's supervisor, took issue with Murrow's statement.  "I know how he feels, but we can never condone vandalism of any kind."  [FULL]
