NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - A Jewish professor at Columbia University's Teachers College says her office was vandalized with swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs.
"I was in shock," Midlarsky said. "I stopped for a moment, because I couldn't believe what I was seeing."
It's the second time her office was vandalized. The first time was in 2007.
Teachers College President Thomas Bailey issued this statement:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, saying he is "disgusted" by the incident, announced that he asked the State Police Hate Crimes Unit to help investigators.
"In the wake of this incident, I stand together with Columbia University and the entire Jewish community of New York," Cuomo said in a statement. "We will hold those behind this act responsible to the full extent of the law, and we will rise above this hate."
