Free speech? Not on your hipster car…

I was inrigued at this story in Thursday's edition of the Rapid City Journal.  Heather Moriah is being challenged from South Dakota's Division of Moter Vehicles on the license plate "MPEACHW."  Despite the fact that it is not sexual or offensive, someone complained and poof, the state says its gone.  Their director plans to use her…authority:

“I’m following the letter of the law,” she said. “It’s offensive to someone and not in good taste and decency. And the plates are the property of the state of South Dakota.”

 

 I love it when some folks are given just a little bit of authority and they use it to push their agenda in any way they can.  I wonder what would have happened if some yahoo came in with an "MPEAHBC" plate in '99.

Sigh.
