TAK­ING LI­CENSE

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

James Lin­lor was de­nied a per­son­al­ized li­cense plate that reads “GOPALIN” from the Ne­vada Depart­ment of Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles for two years, though the of­fice al­ready is­sued plates read­ing “DMOCRAT,” “AL GORE” and “KERRY,” among other mot­tos. Though Mr. Lin­lor was awarded his plate in De­cem­ber; he’s since sued, claim­ing his per­sonal rights were vi­o­lated.

“Plain­tiff in­tends to ap­ply for other ‘po­lit­i­cal’ li­cense plates in Ne­vada in the fu­ture, and be­lieves that the Depart­ment of Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles will deny such ap­pli­ca­tions on grounds of ‘po­lit­i­cal’ con­tent,” say records from Court­house News Ser­vice.

Mean­while, things are more har­mo­nious in Vir­ginia. Cu­ri­ous to see if her lo­cal mo­tor ve­hi­cle of­fice was up to the same tricks, Sarah Palin Ra­dio ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer and host LaDonna Hale Cur­zon of Alexan­dria ap­plied for a per­son­al­ized li­cense plate that read “PALIN.”

She re­veals, “To my pleas­ant sur­prise, that mes­sage had al­ready been taken. So had ‘MAMA GRRZ.’ Speaks well for the com­mon­wealth and Sarah Palin.”
