Rep. Matt Shea fined for damaging Capitol steps with oil

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Republican Rep. Matt Shea is being billed $4,700 for the cleanup of olive oil he intentionally poured on the steps of the state Capitol in March following an earlier demonstration by Satanists who had marched around the building. The Spokesman-Review reported that Shea, of Spokane Valley, was sent a letter and invoice from the Department of Enterprise Services, which manages the Capitol grounds and buildings. State employees later spent days removing the oil, which in some cases had sunk into the stone. The result of the cleaning left those stones lighter than the area around them.
