(Portland, OR)  --  The Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement says there have been more instances of hate-filled graffiti throughout the city since Election Day.  Program manager Theresa Marchetti tells KATU-TV the primary factors at play here are the current political climate and virtually non-existent enforcement, which allow more politically-oriented and racially-motivated messages to be visible.  Marchetti says Portland police stopped responding to tagging-related reports last year because of reductions in staffing. The city has responded by contracting with removal services.
