DENVER – Colorado’s governor is having an odd Thanksgiving. He woke up to find the front lawn of the governor’s mansion covered in toilet paper.

Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter told KUSA-TV that he and his wife noticed shortly after dawn that someone had “teepeed” the front lawn. Officials say it’s the first time in the mansion’s 101-year history anyone has ever strung toilet paper in the yard.

Ritter joked about the prank, saying he has teenage children at home and that it was probably a prank. First Lady Jeannie Ritter said that she would be worried if the house was egged or hurt, but that the toilet paper prank is harmless.

She says, “Political statements are made with a different kind of paper.”

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