BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s secretary of state says he has asked sponsors of the so-called Marsy’s Law proposal to alter an ad that has been in newspapers.

KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1TIqbrC ) reports the ad in newspapers around North Dakota includes the state’s Great Seal in the background. The photo was shot in Secretary of State Al Jaeger’s office when Marsy’s Law backers left petitions for review. Under state law, the seal can’t be used for political purposes.

Proposal sponsors say the measure would expand the rights of crime victims.

Jaeger says he did not know about the photo being taken and didn’t give permission for the ad to use it. He is also in the ad with Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley’s wife, Kathleen Wrigley.
