    Let's keep our fingers crossed.


    WASHINGTON (AP) - The House Republicans' campaign arm may be a victim of fraud by a former employee, and it has asked law enforcement officials to investigate ``irregularities in our financial audit process.''

    The National Republican Congressional Committee, which recruits candidates and raises money for House elections, said in a statement Friday that it learned of the irregularities earlier this week.

    ``Since these irregularities may include fraud, we have notified the appropriate law enforcement authorities,'' said Rep. Tom Cole of Oklahoma, chairman of the committee.

    ``We are aggressively and thoroughly investigating the matter and, while we determine the details, we have terminated our relationship with a former employee who was engaged as an outside vendor,'' Cole said.
