(Salt Lake City: Dan Rather) Report introduced.

(Washington: Eric Engberg) Federal Election Commission finding that House Speaker Newt Gingrich received improper financial help from his own political action committee, GOPAC, five years ago in a tight election race reported; details given of evidence in the Federal Election Commission civil lawsuit that question the Speaker's ethics. [GINGRICH - calls the allegations phoney.] [Representative David BONIOR - says GOPAC is Newt's multi- million dollar slush fund as well as a back door channel for donors to funnel millions to Gingrich for political favors.] Documents exchanged between Gingrich and campaign donor Miller Nichols cited as an example of a shaky ethical deal.

Engberg, Eric;
