Take a look at this screenshot of Republican State Rep. candidate Jack Knapp's campaign site and explain to me how he's violating state law.
...I'll provide the answer later.
UPDATE: Boy, you guys are fast. Here's the violation:
Reproduction of State Arms and Seal:
Please be advised that permission is required to reproduce the state arms and seal under Section 3-106a of the Connecticut General Statutes:
Sec. 3-106a. Reproduction of arms and seal. The official arms and seal of the State of Connecticut, or imitation thereof, whether as a reproduction, imprint or facsimile, shall be made and used only under the direction and with the approval of the Secretary of the State for purposes specifically authorized by the constitution and laws of the state or related directly or indirectly to the official business of the state, provided the secretary may in his judgment approve other reproductions of said arms or seal of the state for memorials and for purposes he considers educational.
The Secretary of State's office gets VERY upset when campaigns use the state seal as it's NOT suppose to be used in ANY campaign material...including websites. Mike McLachlan learned the hard way when he tried to use the seal back in 2008 and since this site is rather popular, I'm sure the Knapp campaign can expect a cease and desist order soon.
In short, if you're going to run for state office, it would help if you obey state law...but again, we're talking about someone who's a fan of one of the dirtiest teams in football.
