toilet-paper_200Denver (AP) — It wasn’t fresh mountain snow but toilet paper that blanketed the front lawn of the Colorado governor’s mansion Thanksgiving morning.

Gov. Bill Ritter told KUSA-TV that he and his wife noticed shortly after dawn Thursday that someone had “teepeed” the front lawn.

State officials said it was the first time that happened to the 101-year-old landmark.

The 1908 Georgian revival home is near the state Capitol in Denver.
