Texas groups linked to DeLay indicted in scandal

It's only a matter of time...

From Reuters, via Yahoo! News:

HOUSTON (Reuters) - A Texas grand jury has indicted a political action committee formed by U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay as well as a powerful business group on charges they violated the state's campaign finance laws, officials said on Thursday.

The indictments, five in all, accuse Texans for a Republican Majority, or TRMPAC, and the Texas Association of Business (TAB) of illegally funneling corporate donations into a 2002 campaign to win control of the Texas Legislature.
DeLay helped create the committee, but he has not been charged with any wrongdoing, and has said he was not involved in TRMPAC's daily operations.
