DeLay lawyer aims to tarnish prosecutor
WASHINGTON -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay's legal team asked a court Friday to throw out his indictment, arguing that a Texas district attorney ''attempted to browbeat and coerce'' grand jurors into filing criminal charges.
Prosecutor Ronnie Earle ''and his staff engaged in ... [a] desperate attempt to contrive a viable charge and get a substitute indictment of Tom Delay,'' DeLay's attorney said in a court filing alleging prosecutorial misconduct.
Earle said the claims have no merit. AP
