NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Police in Oklahoma are investigating after more racist, anti-gay and anti-Semitic remarks were found spray-painted on another Democratic Party office as well as a nearby school and arts center.

Norman police spokeswoman Sarah Jensen says the vandalism was discovered early Wednesday on the windows and sidewalk outside the Cleveland County Democratic Party headquarters, the Firehouse Art Center and McKinley Elementary School.

County Democratic chair Krystal Golding-Ross says the black-and-red graffiti resembles epithets that were spray-painted on the front door, walkway and other areas outside the state Democratic Party headquarters in Oklahoma City and the Oklahoma City office of the Chickasaw Nation last week.

Jensen says Norman and Oklahoma City police are working together.

Golding-Ross says the graffiti is "atrocious" and "not in alignment with our values."
