Tom Delay's Mugshot
HOUSTON Former House Majority leader, Tom DeLay, turned himself in to a Harris County court in Houston to face charges of money laundering and conspiracy.
His lawyer, Dick DeGuerin, issued a press release with photo of a smiling Tom Delay, claiming it was Delay's official mugshot. However, Harris County officials released the actual photograph a few hours later and also added drunken and disorderly conduct, driving under the influence, assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and public urination to the list of charges pending against the Congressman.
If convicted, the Congressman could spend up to five years in the Harris County jail, say county prosecutors.
"We've had just about enough out of this guy," one official told our correspondent, adding, "You ought to see the mess he made in the holding cell."
