    Bush ally indicted by grand jury

    The Guardian reports that the Republican US house majority leader, Tom DeLay has been indicted on charges of taking illegal donations, and money laundering:

    The charge against Mr DeLay relates to a committee he set up in his home state of Texas. It is alleged that the committee, Texans for a Republican Majority, took illegal corporate donations and laundered the money before passing it to Republican candidates in the 2002 elections for the Texas legislature. The move helped the Republicans win control of the state legislature for the first time since the civil war. Mr DeLay, it is alleged, then engineered legislation that resulted in more Texas Republicans being elected to the US House of Representatives.
