Prosecutor Subpoenas DeLay Phone Records - Yahoo! News

Prosecutor Subpoenas DeLay Phone Records - Yahoo! News: "A Texas prosecutor subpoenaed records for the home telephone of former House Majority Leader
Tom DeLay and the phone of his political campaign Thursday.

Also subpoenaed by prosecutor Ronnie Earle were records for two numbers for DeLay's daughter, Danielle DeLay Ferro.

DeLay is facing charges of money laundering and conspiracy in a Texas campaign finance case.

The subpoenas list telephone numbers, but not whom they belong to. They ask for information about the calls and the numbers' subscribers, voice mail service, billing information, long distance calls made from or charged to the numbers and special features.

'The thing is no big deal,' said Bill White, Austin attorney for DeLay.

Earle's office declined comment on the subpoenas. He has said the investigation is continuing.

Earle is seeking the records and information from Sept. 1, 2001, to Dec. 31, 2002, the time period when a political committee founded by DeLay, Texans for a Republican Majority, was raising money for the 2002 election cycle."
