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.
Sleep-in like a little piggy. I wish those little piggies would go home.This isn't the first time these people destroyed public property. They did it after President Obama's inaugural speech and the One Nation rally at the National Mall. This should give anyone all the reason to make sure this group doesn't get what they want. You see how they value public property. They will do worse if they are given what they want.
It's time for those good teachers,police and firefighters to walk away from these people. If they keep standing with them then they will be viewed as them. Do the good teachers,police and firefighters want to be associated with this? They will if they keep standing with them.
There is a right way and a wrong way to do things. These people seem to always pick the wrong way. These pictures also tell us a story of the Democratic Party. When you look at the events the Democratic Party are behind is it any wonder our country is the way it is today?
Do a search on this blog of all the pictures of damage and vitriol the Democrats have done over the years. Do this so the next time a Democrat tells you that the Republicans want to kill the middle class and destroy this country you can show them those pictures. Then ask them who really wants to destroy this country.
Where is the President and Pelosi with her tears of fear? Why are they not speaking out about the violence and vandalism being done in the name of the public unions,Democratic Party and Progressives? Where is the MSM on this vandalism and violence?
These people are a disease to this country and it would be best if they were purged from those protests. But since the unions,Democratic Party and left-wing haven't purged themselves of these people, but rather adopted them and have become them, we will have no choice as viewing citizens but to think that those groups are the problem.
UPDATE: More violence expected from the left.
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Police in riot gear and holding batons are facing off with a growing number of protesters lined up outside a University of California, Berkeley where other protesters have chained themselves together on the ledge of an upper floor of the building.
