Grand Jury Indicts DeLay on New Charge

Grand Jury Indicts Rep. Tom DeLay on New Money Laundering Charge on Heels of Conspiracy Charge
A Texas grand jury indicted Rep. Tom DeLay on a new charge of money laundering Monday, less than a week after another grand jury leveled a conspiracy charge that forced DeLay to temporarily step down as House majority leader. Both indictments accuse DeLay and two political associates of conspiring to get around a state ban on corporate campaign contributions by funneling the money through a political action committee to the Republican National Committee in Washington.The RNC then sent back like amounts to distribute to Texas candidates in 2002, the indictment alleges....The judge who will preside in DeLay's case is out of the country on vacation and couldn't rule on the defense motion. Other state district judges declined to rule on the motion in his place.
