TX-22: Tom DeLay Indicted Again

Posted by Tim Tagaris

This time, for money laundering:

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.

I've been away for much of the day, so I haven't seen anything on the television, but the report is from the AP, fwiw. USA Today runs with the story as well.

UPDATE (Tim): Looks like it was an altogether different grand jury as well

Obviously, the fact that there's a second indictment now means that there's an orchestrated conspiracy out to get DeLay for purely political reasons.
