    MONTPELIER A political action committee has taken down two online ads after learning that it is illegal to use the Vermont state seal in an advertisement.

    The Burlington Free Press reported that the state elections director notified the Vermonters First PAC on Wednesday that violating the state law carries a penalty of up to a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.

    The ads in question promoted Republican candidates Vince Illuzzi and Wendy Wilton, who are running for state auditor and treasurer, and showed images of the Vermont state flag, which carries the seal.

    Tayt Brooks of Vermonters First said he had not been aware of the law regarding use of the state seal.
