October 31, 1996
By: Jennifer Horton
State Capital Bureau
Just days before the election, Republicans officials were awaiting word on the indictments. Jennifer Horton has the story from Jefferson City:
Story:Jennifer Horton
RunTime:
OutCue: SOC
For the past several days, Repulbican party officials have been anxiously waiting for the grand jury indictments.

The state Republican Party's spokesman Daryl Dewey said every Democratic candidate who voted for Bob Griffin must now publicly explain why.

Actuality:Daryl Dewey
RunTime: 8
OutCue: "as Speaker"
Contents: Especially Bekki Cook, who essentially stole the vote for Bob Griffin to remain as speaker.

Cook has been a target of Republican attack because she's the person who presided over Griffin's last election as House Speaker.

Griffin now is under federal, criminal indictment.
