State to review all vanity plates after revoking one saying 'FMUSLMS'


All vanity plates issued in Minnesota will be reviewed after it emerged one driver was able to obtain one that said "FMUSLMS."

FOX 9 reports that the Minnesota Department of Public Safety will review all of the 98,564 vanity plates currently in Minnesota to ensure they comply with state law.

In Minnesota, the law stipulates that personalized plates cannot be of "obscene, indecent, immoral nature, or be of a nature that would offend public morals or decency."

It comes after a driver was able to get one approved that said "FMUSLMS," which came to the attention of officials when a picture was taken of it on a pickup in the St. Cloud area over the weekend.

The plate was revoked by the DPS. In his application for the plate, the driver said "FMUSLMS" is the name of his band.

MPR reports that Gov. Mark Dayton said he was "appalled" the state issued it in the first place.

The plate was found on a 1987 Chevrolet pickup truck, having been issued last June by a deputy registrar's office in Foley and reviewed by the Driver and Vehicle Service, which the Pioneer Press says is a division of the DPS.

The department has said it will be reviewing its process for approving personalized plates in the future.
