A Texas appeals court overturned the 2010 convictions of former House Majority Leader Tom Delay for money laundering and conspiracy, finding there was "insufficient evidence" against him. Dubbed "The Hammer" for his hard-driving style, Delay had been accused of conspiring to illegally funnel $190,000 in corporate campaign donations to Republican candidates for the Texas Legislature in the 2002 elections.
