    Of course they do, and no one is saying he can't tell people about his Scouting involvement. But wearing his uniform in campaign materials is not right.

      Not if you are using it in advertising to get votes. It implies an endorsement.

        Implications are meaningless in the world of politics. Running for office implies honesty, commitment, etc. and we all know that ain't ever gonna happen. If the candidate says they are church goers, does that imply that all Jews and Muslims shouldn't vote for him because it endorses Christianity? Saying he's a scout leader and showing a picture of him in that role is pretty much the same thing.
