Wednesday, October 05, 2005 - DA says new evidence led to new DeLay charges - DA says new evidence led to new DeLay charges: "New evidence obtained during the weekend prompted the money laundering charges that were brought against U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay this week, Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle said Tuesday.

Earle said the grand jury that indicted DeLay last week on the last day of its term 'declined to indict' on charges other than conspiracy to violate the election code.

Earle said in a statement that 'additional information' that he would not detail came to him during the weekend, leading him to present the money laundering charges to a new grand jury Monday."
