New Hampshire's governor has stepped in to help a woman keep a 15-year-old vanity license plate showing a common phrase parents say, the AP reports. The state DMV asked Wendy Auger to surrender the plate, which reads "PB4WEGO." The division said phrases related to excretory acts aren't permitted. But reports Gov. Chris Sununu reached out to the division and "strongly urged them" to allow the Rochester woman to keep the plate. "Earlier this afternoon I left a message on her phone to share the good news that her plate will not be recalled," Sununu said in an email. Auger, who was appealing the recall, said she was "stoked." A DMV spokesperson said the current standards and recall procedures have been in place since July 2018. (More New Hampshire stories.)
