I wonder why this has not been more used by the pro Tester bunch

Intrigue in Montana

Depending on what happens in this hearing, it could be significant in the race between Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester and his Republican challenger, Denny Rehberg, via the Daily Inter Lake:
The judge who sentenced former state Sen. Greg Barkus for a criminal endangerment charge related to a boat crash on Flathead Lake in 2009 has scheduled an Oct. 23 hearing to consider releasing a pre-sentencing investigation report in the case.
An organization called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is seeking the report for information related to Rep. Denny Rehberg, R-Mont., who was badly injured in the crash along with two of his staff members along with Barkus.
Also interested in the report is the campaign of Sen. Jon Tester, whom Rehberg is challenging in the November election.
Tester’s campaign has issued press releases related to the request for the report, including one on Wednesday with the order from Malta District Judge John McKeon, who presided over Barkus’s case.
It's not clear what will happen, but the hearing is much closer to Election Day than Republicans would care for.
