Tom DeLay faces money laundering charge

WASHINGTON (CNN) — A Texas grand jury brought a charge of money laundering Monday against Rep. Tom DeLay, the former House majority leader indicted last week on conspiracy charges stemming from a campaign finance probe.

DeLay and two associates are now also charged with conspiring to illegally steer $190,000 in corporate donations to state legislative candidates in 2002 and to disguise its source by sending it through national Republican campaign committees.
In a written statement, the congressman called the indictment another example of “prosecutorial abuse” by District Attorney Ronnie Earle.
I saw and photographed Mr. DeLay in Houston during the 2004 elections. The photograph seen above is him giving NBC News an interview on Nov. 3, 2004.
