Updates: MT Rep. Rehberg & GA Rep. Gingrey

Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT) did not cast a vote on the DeLay Rule, according to the Billings Gazette today. His office had initially told constituents that he would not say how he voted -- a Refuser -- but today he cleared it up. He said he would have voted for the DeLay Rule, but he had stepped out of the room, and therefore did not voice a vote.

On another note, a spokesman for Georgia Rep. Phil Gingrey tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (registration required) today that the Daily DeLay has it wrong -- Rep. Gingrey did not oppose the DeLay Rule. (We could clear all this up WITH A RECORDED VOTE, you know.) But Rep. Gingrey is in Taiwan. So we will have to wait to get a little more clarification.

For some reason, there were a lot of members not there for this vote. Did they have a quorum? Did a majority of the full conference adopt it? Inquiring minds want to know.
