SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Former Republican U.S. House majority leader Tom DeLay was found guilty of laundering money Wednesday, local media reported.

The web site for the Austin American-Statesman reported that DeLay, nicknamed "The Hammer" for his iron control of the Republican caucus in Congress, was accused of conspiring to funnel $190,000 in campaign donations for Republican candidates to the Texas legislature in the 2002 elections.
