The feud between Virginia Gov. L. Douglas Wilder and Sen. Charles S. Robb (D-Va.) continued as newspapers published what they said were transcripts of a tape of a Wilder phone conversation. Wilder is quoted as discussing newspaper stories saying the state police “had to shut down their investigations” in Virginia Beach because Robb was present at parties under surveillance for possible drug and gambling violations. The transcript was obtained by the Roanoke Times & World-News and the Washington Post. Neither newspaper named its source for the transcript in stories about the tape.
