Rynders uses seal illegally

September 18, 2002

Albany- In a recent campaign mailing, Republican Ed Rynders used the Georgia Seal on his letterhead. 

The problem is that Rynders did it without permission, so technically, he broke the law. Rynders says he had no idea he needed permission to use the seal. 

Because he's not an elected official, he can't just arbitrarily use it without state permission. In fact, it's a misdemeanor to do it.

Rynders says it was an honest mistake, and he plans to talk about it Thursday.
