News 8's John Salazar filed the following video report.

Testimony has resumed in the money laundering trial of former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.

Monday, prosecutors questioned Russell Anderson, the accountant for DeLay's Texas-based political action committee.

DeLay is accused of using his PAC to illegally funnel $190,000 in corporate funds into Texas legislative races in 2002.

DeLay denies wrongdoing. He said the money swap at the center of the case was legal, no corporate money went to Texas candidates and he had little involvement in how the PAC was run.

The former Houston-area congressman is charged with money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering. He faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say they may rest their case on Tuesday.

The trial is in its third week.
