Who Are the Low Numbers?
Driving to work this morning I noticed that the black Mercedes in front of me had a three-digit plate -- 240-something – and I got to wondering, does the owner know somebody? Scott Fawell made it pretty clear that it was near impossible for drivers to get low-numbered plates without personally knowing Fawell or Ryan, or both, when Ryan was Secretary of State. It’s been seven years since they had control over those plates, but they had control for eight years; how many people who got low digits because their “lifetimes” with Citizens for Ryan were high enough are still driving around with them? Sure, some made the transition to new bosses, but how many have low plates but expired clout?
