It sure works out that way for Representative Dennis Rehberg, who’d likely be (if he hasn’t already) depositioned in the case – if not subpoenaed for trial testimony.

Flathead Beacon is reporting that a tentative trial date has been scheduled for state Senator Greg Barkus, of Kallispell, in the matter of his tragic drunken boat ride (which included another drunk, Representative Dennis Rehberg) on Flathead Lake last summer.

Barkus has been charged with 3 felonies.

Rehberg has not been charged – he’s allowed to be drunk, there is no law against that – and that has been his defense all along. Rehberg, in fact, as recently reported by papers throughout the state, has not even changed his office’s policies concerning alcohol and work policies in the aftermath of the crash.

Dennis “I. Was. Not. Drunk. At. The. Time. Of. The. Crash.” Rehberg – sound familiar?

Only he was.

Rehberg’s a notorious drunk – he fell off his horse while drunk on a government-paid boondoggle in Kazakhstan a few years back….and many of you likely recall the expense report he submitted about 3 years ago in which he looked for compensation on bar tab from downtown Washington DC, claiming it to be for lodging (which was actually a couch in the basement, where he slept off his evening of over-indulgent alcohol consumption.)

Dennis Rehberg is an embarrassment. Looks like he’ll be saved the spectacle of the Barkus trial for this election cycle, though – with a trial date set at November 29th, he’ll escape public scrutiny of his role in the Flathead boat crash incident for both is primary and the general (if he makes it that far).
