...It Pours

Them indictments seem to breed like rabbits:

A Texas grand jury indicted Rep. Tom DeLay on a new charge of money laundering Monday, less than a week after another grand jury leveled a conspiracy charge that forced DeLay to temporarily step down as House majority leader.
Just to reiterate, that does read another grand jury.

[UPDATE]: According to a more fully fleshed out write-up, it looks like that while this is a new grand jury, it is part of the same Ronnie Earle investigation in which Dlay was indicted on criminal conspiracy charges. He's none too happy about it, neither:
"Ronnie Earle has stooped to a new low with his brand of prosecutorial abuse," DeLay said in a statement. "He is trying to pull the legal equivalent of a 'do-over' since he knows very well that the charges he brought against me last week are totally manufactured and illegitimate. This is an abomination of justice."
Hmmm. Doesn't seem that way to me at all. Seems much more like the prosecutor has grounds to indict The Hammer on more specific charges.
