SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Lt. Gov. Gary Herbert will ask Attorney General Mark Shurtleff to explain his use of the state seal in a letter he sent to other attorneys general praising a Utah company.
In September, Shurtleff sent a letter touting technology produced by Orem-based DigitalBridge. The company, which donated $10,000 to Shurtleff's campaign, posted the letter on its Web site.
Herbert's office says sending the letter on official letterhead with the state seal could be a violation of state law.
Illegal use of the seal could bring a felony charge, although that rarely happens.
