DeLay Convicted on Money Laundering Charges

George Wenschhof

Yesterday, Tom DeLay was found guilty of money laundering charges. The former Republican House Majority Leader was found guilty yesterday, five years after being forced to resign. He had been accused of working around a state law in Texas to donate corporate money to political campaigns.

The sentencing could be five to ninety-nine years or the judge could offer probation. DeLay has said he intends to appeal the verdict. The NY Times has more here.

Delay's heavy handed leadership contributed to Democratic House gains in the 2006 and 2008 elections.
