A Philadelphia judge on Tuesday ordered that a mural of President Barack Obama at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School be covered up after a Republican election worker captured a picture of the mural at the polling place.
A spokesman for the Philadelphia school district said the mural was painted in 2009 after students voted for inspirational figures whose likenesses they wanted in the school's cafeteria. The spokesman, Fernando Gallard, said it's up to the polling place judge to prepare the site for the election.
"Our only concern is that it not get damaged," Gallard said.
