LITIG8: A dirty vanity plate word search 

click to enlarge thebigpicture1-1.jpg

Last week, after hearing that a court in Georgia overturned the state's denial of a motorist's request for a personalized "GAY PWR" license plate, state Rep. Jonathan Barnett, Republican of Siloam Springs, asked the state Department of Finance and Administration to review the list of words that are verboten on the state's personalized license plates. Naturally, the Arkansas Times felt compelled to file a Freedom of Information request for the list, which includes more than 11,000 combinations of letters and numbers, some obviously offensive, others only vulgar if you're in kindergarten. Incidentally, "GAY PWR" is not on the list, but "BLKPWR" is, if anyone's feeling litigious.

Below we've mixed in a few license plate combos the censors missed (or don't care about) with others that are straight from the list. See if you can pick the row or column of plates that we made up, and let us know how it goes for you at the revenue office.

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
