The Lincoln Memorial was splattered with green paint in late July.

The National Park Service says the cleanup is wrapping up at the Lincoln Memorial, three weeks after the statue was vandalized with green paint.

Park service spokeswoman Carol Johnson says the final treatment to remove the last traces of paint from the monument was washed off this morning, and the scaffolding around the memorial has been removed.

A woman charged with defacing two chapels at the National Cathedral with paint is also suspected in the vandalism of the memorial and other sites. Jiamei Tian was released to a halfway house earlier this month.

According to court documents she has Chinese passport and was traveling on an expired visa.
