(Studio) Speaker House John McCormack denies "Life" magazine story about his office being used for influence-peddling for high fees. Report says fixes and shakedowns arranged by Washington, DC lobbyist, Nathan Voloshen, and now suspended aide. They used McCormack's name, stationery, and office for deals. Report says McCormack more than naively involved.
