WASHINGTON, DC - MAY 23: U.S. President Barack Obama listens as Medea Benjamin, an activist from the organization called Code Pink, shouts at him while he speaks at the National Defense University May 23, 2013 in Washington, DC. Obama used the speech to outline and justify his administration's counterterrorism policy, including increased cooperation with Congress on matters of national security, added transparency regarding the use of drones, and a review of current threats facing the United States.

   LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- A portrait of President Barack Obama in a Lafayette federal building has been raised higher after several weeks of someone tucking into its frame slips of paper calling for the president's impeachment.
 
   The portrait was raised about 18 inches this week on the wall across from a bank of post office boxes inside the Halleck Federal Building, putting it out of easy reach.
 
   General Services Administration spokeswoman Cat Langel tells the Journal & Courier  that the agency which manages the building wants to prevent more tampering with the portrait.
 
   She says the agency is working with security personnel in the building to remain aware of any possible incidents.
