Seals in the news

I’ve been using a lot of state seals lately to accompany posts on this site, so this story about seals caught my eye.

A Republican fundraising invitation circulated last week includes a decorative seal that some say could be a violation of Senate ethics rules.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee’s invitation to an “Armed Services Industry Roundtable” with Sens. Saxby Chambliss of Georgia and John Thune of South Dakota included the committee’s seal, a round symbol that includes an eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows.

Politico has both seals here and, like The Washington Times, doesn’t mention this law.  Nice to see so many people paying attention to seals.  Maybe someone is still steaming from the controversy surrounding the Obama campaign’s use of a seal.
