DALLAS -- U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, R-Tex., and two former aides have been reindicted on charges of official misconduct and tampering with evidence and government records during her tenure as Texas treasurer.

"It's a sad day for Texas and its political system," Hutchinson said in a prepared statement after the indictment was handed down Wednesday by a grand jury in Travis County, Tex. "At least I'm relieved that we can finally get to court. My side of the story can now be told."
