He was accused of funneling $190,000 to help elect Republicans to the state House and Senate in 2002. At the outset of the trial, DeLay predicted the jury would clear him, and he remained unrepentant after learning the verdict. "This is an abuse of power. It's a miscarriage of justice," DeLay told reporters.
