From the Havre (MT) Daily News: "But McDonald said Thursday in interviews that Rehberg and state Sen. Greg Barkus, who was driving the boat, showed poor judgment the night of the accident. McDonald said the two Republicans, which he called "drunken politicians," should not have been drinking before heading off across the lake. Rehberg has said he had less than Two beers, and said the hospital tested his alcohol level at .05, below the level considered legally impaired for a driver, which he wasn't."
There was a boat accident on Flathead Lake near Kalispell, MT. A GOP state senator was driving the boat that crashed and injured several people. The despicable Democrat running for U.S. House of Representatives and running for the seat now held by GOP Denny Rehberg.
Democrat Dennis McDonald is using the accident as an excuse the politicians. The other candidate in the Democrat primary is Tyler Gernant and is also using the tragedy for his sick advantage to promote health care reform: ""Honestly, I think that will be for Montanans to decide," Gernant said. "But I can say that I think Representative Rehberg is very fortunate to have publicly funded health insurance." http://www.havredailynews.com/articles/2009/09/25/local_headlines/state.txt
These two Democrats are pathetic. They use an accident in which no one is being criminally charged to make their pathetic points. Does he honestly think no politician drinks, especially Democrat politicians?
I realize it is politics as usual- destroy the opposition, but this really went over the line.
As a side note, I used to live in Havre and traveled to Glacier National Park and Kalispell numerous times. Very beautiful area- a place I would love to live.
