Uh-Oh: Double Trouble for Tom DeLay

A separate grand jury has indicted DeLay on a new charge of money laundering.

Both indictments accuse DeLay and two political associates of conspiring to get around a state ban on corporate campaign contributions by funneling the money through a political action committee to the Republican National Committee in Washington.

DeLay's earlier indictment charged that conspirators carried out a fund-raising scheme by having the DeLay-founded Texans for a Republican Majority Political Action Committee send corporate money to the Republican National Committee. The RNC then sent back a like amount — $190,000 — to distribute to Texas candidates in 2002, the indictment alleges.
D’oh! The Hammer’s gonna meet the gavel. (Hat tip to Ol’ Cranky.)

Tom DeLay points to his eternal
destination. No word on whether his
mode of transport will be a handbasket.
