Massachusetts Police along with the Secret Service are investigating a troubling act of vandalism at a Lakeville country club. A giant swastika was carved into the green, along with "Obama".
Lakeville County Club workers discovered the vandalism early Monday morning. "We don't know if they did it with some type of cleated shoe, or they had some type of tool and this time of year to have that happen, it's a problem it's much harder to fix now," said Lou Mincone, the assistant manager of the Lakeville Country Club.
The manager is trying to figure out the best way to get rid of it. Workers attempted to cover it temporarily with green spray paint; however, the symbol was carved too deep. They will now try to get turf from another area to fill in the message. Work is scheduled to begin on Tuesday morning.
