Alabama to Recall 'N0H0M0' License Plate

License

The "N0H0M0" Alabama license plate that made waves on social media earlier this week, will now be recalled by the state's Department of Revenue, the Associated Press reports:

Revenue Department spokeswoman Amanda Collier says the license plate with the saying "NOHOMO" slipped past its three-member review panel. She says the state prohibits personalized tags with profane or vulgar messages.

Collier added taht the car owner can appeal the decision. 


Alabama Issues 'N0H0M0' License Plate

Nohomo

The Alabama DMV's license plate "review and recall process" apparently overlooked one vehicle owner's "N0H0M0" license plate. Think Progress published the photo, taken by Scott Johnston, a Facilities Manager in the Atlanta, Georgia area, who saw it in a parking lot.

Writes TP's Zack Ford:

Amanda Collier, a spokesperson for the Alabama Department of Revenue, informed ThinkProgress that a process is in place to monitor what plates are banned. When a request for a personalized license plate is filed, a three-person review panel considers each application, sometimes offering alternative lettering for the requested message. Some messages are so explicit, however, that “no alternative can be offered” and the taxpayer’s request is denied. “There is a list of more than 6,000 plates that are strictly banned and will not be allowed on any tag in the state,” Collier explained, including “anything explicit, any profanity, or vulgar language.”

Obama Ad Calls Romney Out on His Automotive Industry Lies: VIDEO

Detroit

Mitt Romney put out an ad implying that Chrysler is moving U.S. jobs to China.

Writes Business Insider:

The claim is completely misleading and false, and provoked an outcry from Democrats and reporters . The report, from Bloomberg, actually said that Chrysler is talking about adding Jeep production in China in order to serve the Chinese market. Jeep production in North America would continue unchanged.

The claim is completely misleading and false, and provoked an outcry from Democrats and reporters . The report, from Bloomberg, actually said that Chrysler is talking about adding Jeep production in China in order to serve the Chinese market. Jeep production in North America would continue unchanged.

But despite the fact that Romney's claim was demonstrably wrong, his campaign is doubling down in the new ad, which went on air this weekend in Ohio.

The Obama campaign fires back at Romney's "lie" with a new ad.

When the auto industry faced collapse, Mitt Romney turned his back. Even the conservative Detroit News criticized Romney for his 'wrong-headedness' on the bailout. And now, after Romney's false claim of Jeep outsourcing to China, Chrysler itself has refuted Romney's lie. The truth? Jeep is adding jobs in Ohio.

Watch both, AFTER THE JUMP...
