CNN: Texas jury convicts Tom DeLay on money laundering charges
A Texas jury on Wednesday convicted former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay on charges of illegally funneling corporate money to help elect GOP candidates to the Texas Legislature. DeLay was found guilty of money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering, court bailiff Gilbert Soto said. 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.
