Tim Kaine License Plate?

K- Plate

Slow night last night so I took a look over at the local Dem site to see what those guys were up to. I found that it is now possible, for a additional cost of $10, you can show your pride in VA. Governor Tim Kaine by purchasing a special Virginia license plate... The license plate with have a "K" in front of or following the other numbers to show your pride in the Governor...

Now where does the additional $10 go and towards what? True sense of the word "Vanity" plate...

Hey. Will it be possible to get license plates with the letter "D" used the same way? Not for the "D" to represent "Democrat" but rather "Delegate" so we can show our support of the Delegates who stood up to Kaine and his attempts to raise our taxes?

I kid you not. Below is the text from the license plate application form...


GOV. KAINE LICENSE PLATE!
To enable supporters of Governor Timothy M. Kaine to demonstrate their pride in his leadership of our Commonwealth, a special series of license plate numbers has been established. This special series consists of a number preceded or followed by the letter “K.” The number can be used on virtually any of the many license plate designs, such as the Seal of the Commonwealth plate or the standard type of license plate.
The charge to have a “K” plate is $10, which is paid to the Department of Motor Vehicles after the plate is assigned and when it is actually ordered from the DMV. (There is an additional charge for the various license plate designs.)

Can you provide a link to this on the VA DMV site?
I found this: http://www.dmv.virginia.gov/exec/vehicle/splates/alpha.asp?alpha=k
and there's nothing about it there.
I see the app you mentioned, but it seems like this is more of a suggestion to apply for what is ultimately just a personalized plate. Not like the sample that you are showing. The funds go to the smae place all other personalized plates go to.
So you Repubs could band together and all get "A" plates for Allen.

In fact they must have recycled this idea from the previous gov. Click on the app form and read the window title.

It's on the VA Democrat site right under the link to getting a VA Dem credit card application...

All kind of exposure, you guys got matching shoelaces?

Yeah, I know I see it there, but I'm looking for something from the DMV that backs this up as a state sanctioned vanity plate, rather than a group of people that just agree to get plates that start with a "K". Did you even read what I wrote above?

The sample plate shown was doctored and not actually what you will get for your $10 bucks...

Can you imagine looking at TK looking back at you from the bumper ahead while sitting at a stop light!!!

The crazy eyebrow would feel like big brother was watching me.

All it took was a couple of beers, a couple of buddies and a sense of the ridiculous.

I wonder if Mark Warner used W for his. Probably not.

Don't you folks know anything about Gubernatorial-issued license plates? Many former governors have issues special series plates: A=Mills Godwin, B=John Dalton, J=Jim Gilmore, G=George Allen, W=Mark Warner. Keep an eye out; you'll see them on the roads.

You can see Gov. Dalton's son still sport a plain "B" on his plate.
