Texas court hears arguments on reinstating conviction of ex-Rep. DeLay

Prosecutors asked the highest criminal court in Texas on Wednesday to reinstate the 2010 convictions of former U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader Tom Delay for money laundering and conspiracy, saying a lower court erred last year in throwing out the case against the prominent Republican. A Texas appeals court in September overturned the 2010 convictions of Delay, finding there was “insufficient evidence” against him.. Known as “The Hammer” for his tough political tactics, DeLay was convicted of conspiring to illegally funnel $190,000 in corporate campaign donations to Republican candidates for the Texas Legislature in the 2002 elections. Brian Wice, a lawyer for DeLay, told reporters the actions of the prosecution were politically motivated.
