In yet another display of the manly, John Wayne lifestyle of Montana Republicans, John Sinrud is crying because the governor is picking on him, even though he’s not:
A state board has ordered Rep. John Sinrud, R-Bozeman, to quit practicing architecture until he obtains an architect’s license or he will face court action.
The Board of Architects unanimously issued a cease and desist order against Sinrud Oct. 15.
It vowed to seek a court injunction against him if it finds he continues to practice architecture without a license.
The board, part of the state Department of Labor and Industry, also said it might ask the county attorney to prosecute him for a misdemeanor.
Sinrud, one of Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s harshest critics, charged that he is the victim of a political witch hunt that’s depriving him of his right to earn a living.
“It was nothing but political, absolutely and completely political,” Sinrud said Monday. “It’s a political hit because I caused the governor some problems.”
Here’s a revolutionary idea, John. Follow the law, and quit blaming the Governor for your mistakes. The next time you get a traffic ticket, I assume that will be the Governor, too?
