Sid Miller (Tx House Dist 59) Named In Amended Indictment Against Texas Association of Business (TAB)

29 August 2008 at 1:21:33 PM

Remember how Sid Miller had his campaign in 2002 funded by TAB? And it is ILLEGAL for corporations to spend money on campaign advertising? (An excellent reminder of Miller's involvement with Tom Delay and TRMPAC is the movie "The Big Buy". -VIDEO Snips on THIS link-    In 2006 the Grand Jury re-indicted TAB. (and here's a reminder about David Lengefeld of Hamilton who ran against Miller in 2002). Plus a bit about Bill Hammond.

So, anyway, in April of this year, a state district judge dismissed the charges against TAB. Today I read that Ronnie Earle hasrefiled an amended indictment, with a trial set for late September.

Just weeks before the November elections, as many as two dozen current and former GOP legislative candidates might have to explain in court how the Texas Association of Business helped get them elected six years ago.

More upsetting to the Republicans, however, might be that their names appeared Thursday in an amended indictment against the business group, even though they are not accused of wrongdoing. "It's an unprecedented attack on members of the Legislature," said Rep. Dan Flynn, R-Van, whose name is included in the indictment. "It makes me believe there is a complete abuse of the (judicial) process."

Travis County District Attorney Ronnie

Earle, a Democrat, said his office added the names to the 3-year-old indictment after defense lawyers for the business association, demanding more detail about the allegations against their client, asked in court papers, "What candidates did they advocate for?"

A trial is tentatively set for Sept. 22 to hear charges that the state's largest business organization made illegal corporate campaign donations in 2002 because it paid the salaries of association officers who were campaigning for Republican candidates.

Here's all the Republicans named in the indictment. THEY are not under indictment, TAB is, but they may be called to testify about their own involvement.
