Former Republican Chairman Under Investigation

Accused of mishandling more than 15- thousand dollars in state election funds, a former Gregg county Republican chairman, Glen Canfield, is under investigating by the state secretary's office. The current chairperson accused Canfield of failing to return money left over after primary elections and discrepancies in reporting payments to the I-R-S, going back to 1992.

Evidence may be turned over to the state attorney general's office.
