Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas) was found guilty Wednesday on money laundering and conspiracy charges.
DeLay was indicted in 2005 on charges of conspiracy to violate election laws by illegally funneling $190,000 in corporate money to candidates in 2002. He subsequently stepped down as majority leader.
