Even if it's not a misuse of public information etc etc isn't that a violation of McCain-Feingold or other campaign finance laws? I know here in Michigan (can't remember if it's a federal or state law that prevents this) a Sheriff was put into hot water for posing for a picture that went into campaign literate that had him wearing a radio that was bought for the department with federal funds. Even if you're in the SO you can't use your title when running for office (ie: you can't say "Elect Lieutenant Smith for XXXX" because it's a misuse of taxpayer dollars (your salary). This may or may not apply here but it's another avenue to look into if you're that mad about it. Personally I might take the offer
