A Plate Full of Politics

South Dakota wants Heather Moriah (left) to surrender her vanity license plate. Seems it has a hidden, partisan political message that got past the DMV folks.


Someone complained and the DMV folks are talking about sending the cops out to take back the plates if Heather doesn't play nice.

Heather's apparently telling the DMV folks to take a number and wait until they're called. She says since the plate isn't obscene or otherwise dirty -- it should be protected speech.

The state -- by law --is only allowed to retrieve the plates if “any letter combination which carries connotations offensive to good taste and decency.” (Rapid City Journal)

You know, if I wasn't deeply involved with someone, I'd ask her to be the mother of my children.
