There's not one of Columbus, so apparently these vandals settled for the Marcus Whitman one instead.

Walla Walla police and Whitman College security confirm they are investigating the vandalism of the statue at the college.

Officials say sometime between last night and this morning, vandals spray painted the word 'genicide' on the statue.  Due to this being Columbus Day, and Marcus Whitman has come under fire from extreme left-wing groups because of alleged 'mistreatment' of local Indians, it's believed they're some sort of protest group.

It's also noted they misspelled "Genocide."   The paint has already been removed, police and college security continue to investigate.
