...And a Payday for Democrats

The treasurer for a political committee that House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) founded will have to pay $200,000 for breaking Texas election law. A civil case against Bill Ceverha found he failed to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions. Mr Ceverha was treasurer for "Texans for a Republican Majority PAC. The people who sued him -- all Democratic candidates who lost elections -- claimed TRMPAC funneled $600,000 worth of corporate cash toward illegally influencing Texas House races three years ago. The $200,000 will be split among the plaintiffs in the case. (USAToday)
