D’Souza Indicted for Campaign Finance Fraud

Dinesh D’Souza, popular author and the film-maker responsible for 2016: Obama’s America, has been arrested and indicted for campaign finance fraud. Apparently, he gave four times more than the $5,000 individual cap to Republican Wendy Long. She was running to replace Senator Hillary Clinton’s vacated seat in 2012. And Long ended up losing to Kirsten Gillibrand anyway.

D’Souza allegedly attempted to give his contribution in the names of others to hide his excesses. But the ever-vigilant forces of the New York civil government found out his clearly great evil. US Attorney for Manhattan Preet Bharara said,

“As we have long said, this Office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process.”

Yes, you all have been so upstanding in the past. Consider this: All D’Souza would have needed to do was to pay for advertisements from behind a corporation, and he would have been allowed to donate an effectively unlimited amount. Which makes no sense at all. Gillibrand received huge amounts (through PACs or advertising or employee campaign drives) from incorporated entities. Huge. You think $20,000 is a lot of money? It’s not. Try almost $400,000 to Gillibrand from Boies, Schiller, and Flexner (a New York law firm). In fact, all of Gillibrand’s top 20 donors gave more than $20,000. All of them. None of her top twenty gave less than $70,000.

The only difference is that these contributors were not individuals. They were incorporated. In effect, it was a single interest’s money being given in the names of many individuals. Hmmmm. And under the Citizens United ruling, corporations can spend an unlimited amount to advertise for particular candidates. For Preet Bharara to make the claim that the civil government has a “zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process” is absurd in light of Citizens United. But what should we expect from a man whose full first name is actually Preetinder? (His parents hated him.)

If it is true that D’Souza gave $20,000 and hoped to hide this fact behind multiple names, would it have made a practical difference if he had hidden his identity behind incorporation? Legally, this would have made a difference perhaps. Practically, I fail to see any difference. This is a witch-hunt, plain and simple.

Wendy Long lost. D’Souza’s donations were negligible considering how much was spent in this campaign. And Citizens United makes this individual limitation arbitrary (at best) anyway. All in all, they are arresting and indicting D’Souza because they don’t like his politics. And they can. But let’s not pretend their real motivation is heartfelt devotion to the letter of the law. Give me a break.

    • So since he didn’t take the loophole route dems take, its not tolerated? Granted its against the law, but so is it in a technicality doing it loop hole style. Also Obama circumventing his power above the constitution is against the law. Why aren’t you saying anything about that?

      • Loopholes are legal. What he did was illegal. Is your argument that because everyone that commits a crime isn’t prosecuted that we shouldn’t prosecute anyone?

        • No, I don’t condone what he did if it was illegal, nor would I condone it if a politician did it from either side. But now I understand why you do support those that abuse the system of getting government aid when they don’t really need it,or supporting millions of law breakers by giving them a pardon (illegal immigrants of course). And before you say, “Well Reagan did it!”. I would’t have supported that decision then, and I’m sure not going to support it now. And of course you won’t comment on Obama breaking the constitutional law, because you just love it when he acts like a dictator/king more than a president. That pesky constitution, always getting in the way…

        • How do you know D’Souza is actually guilty? The obama regime goes after their opposition. I have read D’souza’s books and read about him personally. I really doubt that he would break the law.

    • “Just because you happen to agree with his politics doesn’t make him above the law.”

      This from a clown who is perfectly comfortable using illegal alien votes to cancel citizen votes.

      • Funny….Now BoB the resident scumbag homo TROLL is worried about someone “breaking the law” now? I guess that’s understandable since he actually believes everything his god and master obamao says.

        One day a nun was standing on the side of the road waiting for a cab. A cab stopped and picked her up. During the ride she noticed that the driver was staring at her. When she asked him why, he said, “I want to ask you something, but I don’t want to offend you.” She said, “You can’t offend me. I have been a nun long enough that I have heard just about everything.” The cab driver then said, “Well, I’ve always had a fantasy to have a nun give me a blow job.” She said, “Well, perhaps we can work something out under two conditions.You have to be single, and you have to be Catholic.” Immediately the cab driver said, “Oh, yes!I’m single and I’m Catholic!” The nun said, “Okay, pull into that alley.” The cab driver pulled into the alley and the nun went to work. Shortly afterwards, the cab driver started crying. The nun said, “My child, what’s the matter?” He said tearfully, “Sister, I have sinned. I lied, I lied…I’m married and I’m Jewish!” The nun replied, “That’s okay. My name’s MrMaliSPEW BoB and I’m on my way to a costume party!”

    • A Boob by any other name is still a Boob. Listening to my former Congressman, he said you can find these occurrences in every campaign and with both parties and it normally ends with a slap on the wrist and a fine. Remember the Clintons and the Chi Coms, or the John Edwards campaign where the amounts were in the hundreds of thousands. In this case it is peanuts and the candiddate did not have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning yet he is criminally arrested and faces 7 years in jail. Even a hopeless lib like you Boob can see that this is using the heavy hand of big government to punish an outspoken critic. Combine this with the IRS scandal, the Justice Department going after FOX News, Bob McConnell,and the Chris Christie scandal and even you Boob cannot be so blind and/or stupid that you do not see the evil in this administration. To think Nixon was run out of office for far less than what Obama is doing. Wake up Malibu Boob.

        • The selective enforcement is Obama’s fault and no doubt by his orders. They supposedly have zero tolerance for this but as I said, it happens in every campaign by both parties and it’s funny how this one individual who just happened to make a very successful movie critical of Obama is the one that gets arrested rather than getting the slap on the wrist and a fine. Obama breaks the law regularly but you seem to have no problem with that.

        • You break the law every day for molesting young boys and old men, bobbie. Plain and simple. Oshitma breaks the law constantly.

        • MrMaliSPEWbLob, someone who believes everything his god and master obamao says is worried that someone broke the law??

          Three gay men died, and were going to be cremated (one of them was MaliSpewbLob). Their lovers happened to be at the funeral home at the same time, and were discussing what they planned to do with the ashes. The first man said, “My Ryan loved to fly, so I’m going up in a plane and scatter his ashes in the sky.” The second man said, “My Ross was a good fisherman, so I’m going to scatter his ashes in our favorite lake.” The third man said, “My MalibuBob was such a good lover, I think I’m going to dump his ashes in a pot of chili, so he can tear my ass up just one more time.”

    • THE law didn’t stop money mogul Peirce O’Donnell from giving 20K to Sen Edward’s campaign. Where is the “perp walk” for him?
      Crickets.

  1. This is obama trying to ruin another person who speaks the truth about him. D’Souza is an honorable man. The communists in power seek to destroy any opposition. Remember what they did to Herman Cain, the black republican who was running for president? He would have taken all of obama’s votes and they just couldn’t have that so they paraded out 3 women who claim to have been sexually harrassed by Cain. Please read “Masters of Deceit” by J. Edgar Hoover.
    Rules for Radicals is another book that obama plays by. It’s a means to an end for the traitor in the White House.

    • Does anyone know what ever became to the FEC investigation of overseas donations in amounts less than $200? It seems that in campaign 2008, team Obama got approx. $200 million mostly from Europe from donors making credit card donations on the internet. I think the law says donations less than $200 don’t need have donor’s name recorded. How convenient !!!

        • I must be missing something. This piece of trash D’Souza gets caught lying & cheating breaking election laws but because he made some shitty piece of propaganda he gets a free pass from teabaggers to break the law

          • As usual, Bobbie, you are missing something. It was only shitty propaganda to you and your communist comrades but to everybody else in the free world it was fact. You are a hypocrite, little man.

          • Speaking of criminals and political hacks, how’s Obama doing these days? Like I said before, Bob, you are a hypocrite.

          • They would be indicted if it weren’t for Harry Reid, the MSM and a few RINO’s. Just wait until we take back the Senate in November.

          • Apaprnlety hmoosxeulas aer brililnat at unscarbmnlig snetnecse
            Bob does that above in .000001 second!!!

            Homo’s like Blob are f**king a$$holes….Literally.

            What our resident scumbag liberal homo TROLL, mr MaliPEUWbLoB “must be missing” is: That he actually believes everything hjs “piece of trash” god and master obamao says….

    • Don’t forget the “EX-Wife” of Newt Gingrich, paraded out 10 years or more After a divorce, to tell her pathetic story. Both Cain and Gingrich Ads were an example of democrats desperate to destroy others, when they themselves are the most corrupt citizens we have in Society today. Those ads were so distasteful, I am still puzzled by people actually believing that garbage, and voting for the person back into office that was behind all.

  2. …IF ANY of us gave it any thought when the movie came out, I’m sure we’d have agreed that sooner or later there would be payback…

  3. He’s getting railroaded. It seems there are a few this is happening to right now. Ask the former governor of Virginia.

  4. Appears that if you say something against obama, they will trump up charges against you. If you lie and say nice things about him you can do anything you want.

    • And of course Gov. Andrew Coumo, who wants to throw his hat in the ring for 2016, is more than happy to do Obama’s dirty work.

    • Exactly. Just wait until we get a Republican candidate. They are going to create disinformation to destroy him. It’s an old Russian communist tactic.

      • The tactic existed long before Russia came onto the scene. Records from at least 5,000 yrs ago exist. Liars and propagandists have always existed. in our time, they seem to be concentrated among the Dem society. We dare not look too close, however, since some Rep are also supporting the alias, Barack H. Obama, illegal alien from Kenya.

  5. If D’Souza would have made out much better if he were only blacker, and if he were a lib his bail would have been $1.50. And if he had shot a cop or an American soldier the DOJ would have given him the Medal of Freestuff.
