DeLay Found Guilty of Money-Laundering

A Texas jury found former House majority leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) guilty in a money-laundering trial involving contributions to political campaigns, the New York Times reports.

"The verdict was the latest chapter in a long legal battle that forced Mr. DeLay to step down. The trial also opened a window on the world of campaign financing in Washington, as jurors heard testimony about large contributions flowing to Mr. DeLay from corporations seeking to influence him and junkets to posh resorts where the congressman would rub shoulders with lobbyists in return for donations."

He faces up to life in prison on the money laundering charge.
