GREAT NECK, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island Democratic supporter says he's been driven to hide his OBAMA vanity license plates inside his car because people kept trying to steal them.
Great Neck resident Jonathan Lifschutz says he got the plates bearing the surname of the U.S. president-elect from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles days after the Jan. 26 South Carolina primary.
The 50-year-old financial analyst and former Hillary Clinton donor says would-be thieves tried prying off the plates and he even caught one man red-handed.
He jokes the Empire State plates one day will be a collector's item - in someone else's house.
So he's taken them off his car and put his old plates back on.
