Either the master cylinder is bad or you have a leak in the break system.

Master cylinder, if you had a leak the pedal would drop even with the car being off.

someone with a similar problem traced it to the vacumn booster for the brakes.

The car would have to be running. Then if the brake booster is bad the brakes will get stiff.
