DeLay charged in probe

Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Latest News: "A Travis County grand jury charged U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and two political associates Wednesday with conspiracy to violate Texas election laws.

Mr. DeLay, R-Sugar Land, stepped aside as majority leader, as House Republican rules require.

The four-page indictment alleges that Mr. DeLay; Jim Ellis, the head of the majority leader's national political committee; and John Colyandro, who ran the Texas political committee known as TRMPAC conspired to get corporate money into the hands of Texas statehouse candidates. Corporate money is banned in Texas political races."
