Ken Plum, Mr. Speaker

Tim Craig

At the start of each legislative session, House and Senate members receive their vanity license plates that identifies them as a member of the legislature. The license plate includes a number based on their seniority.

This year, Del. Kenneth R. Plum (D-Fairfax) had a surprise when he got his plate because it identified him as the speaker of the House.

Earlier today, Plum spoke about the error on the House floor.

"Mr. Speaker, this is a prediction of things to come," Plum told House Speaker William J. Howell (R-Stafford), referring to Democrats efforts to win back control in the 2009 elections.

Howell responded, "You need to save that, maybe it will be a collector's item some day."
