Embattled Republican House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's Texans for a Republican Majority Political Action Committee (TRMPAC) and the Texas Association of Business (TAB) have been indicted on charges of illegally using corporate money to fund Republican legislative campaigns in 2002.

According to the Austin-American Statesman, this morning's indictments include 128 counts against the business group and two against the political action committee.

TRMPAC is charged with two counts of "illegally accepting corporate donations, including $100,000 from the Washington, D.C.-based Alliance for Quality Nursing Home Care."

Last fall, three TRMPAC officials were indicted by a separate grand jury for using $600,000 of corporate cash on committee activities.
