Dinesh D'Souza indicted for violating U.S. election law

BY JONATHAN STEMPEL

NEW YORK Thu Jan 23, 2014 6:03pm EST

Jan 23 (Reuters) - Dinesh D'Souza, a conservative commentator and best-selling author, has been indicted by a federal grand jury for arranging excessive campaign contributions to a candidate for the U.S. Senate.

According to an indictment made public on Thursday in federal court in Manhattan, D'Souza around August 2012 reimbursed people who he had directed to contribute $20,000 to the candidate's campaign. The candidate was not named in the indictment.

Attempts to reach D'Souza and a lawyer representing him were unsuccessful.

D'Souza was charged in the indictment with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made.

Federal law in 2012 limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.

"As we have long said, this Office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process," the U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, Preet Bharara, said in a statement released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Bharara is an Obama appointee.

Born in Mumbai, India, D'Souza, 52, is a former policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan, and has been affiliated with conservative organizations such as the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

He also directed a 2012 film critical of President Barack Obama, "2016: Obama's America," and has written books including "The End of Racism," "Life After Death: The Evidence" and "Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream."

D'Souza campaigned in 2012 on behalf of Wendy Long, a lawyer and Republican who sought to unseat Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand as New York's junior senator. Long graduated from Dartmouth College in 1982, a year before D'Souza.

Long could not be reached for comment on Thursday.

Gillibrand, herself a 1988 Dartmouth graduate, ended up winning re-election to her first full term, collecting close to 72 percent of the vote.

In late 2012, D'Souza resigned his post as president of King's College, a small Christian college in New York City, after admitting he had become engaged to a woman even though he was legally married, though separated from his wife. He has been an outspoken defender of traditional marriage.

The case is U.S. v. D'Souza, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 14-cr-00034.

This nation has invited in this virus residing in the WH.

Here is plain and obvious proof of politically motivated persecution by departments of the Government at the behest of barack Obama.

D'Souza was going to debate Bill Ayers at the end of the month.

I guess Barry feared what Bill might have said.

Like confirming that he and not Barry penned, "Dreams From My Father."

Obama is a scum sucking dog.

A Chicago hood.

A third world inspired Marxist who gives not a shit about anything but him, his benefit and what will make him look good.

Maybe he is saying to the Conservatives, "See what happens when even one of your notable celebrity Conservatives asks too many questions or makes me angry?"

I can't say for the moment whether this will produce more than a wave of outrage on the internet or not.

Think it might be the straw that broke the camel's back IF D'Souza is innocent.

It looks bad.

Highly political.

It is reckless, destructive and indefensible.

IF D'Souza is a victim of unwarranted targeted political persecution.

Obama's lap dog A.G. is busy rounding up "the usual suspects" while the Fast/Furious scandal is still covered up by the administration.

I'm sure you would share the same skepticism had it been a Democrat who was indicted. Everybody is innocent until proven guilty, but you made your mind up already. Of course it has to be persecution by the Obama administration. It couldn't possibly be that Republican heroes commit crimes too.

Innocent or guilty, D'Souza is still a partisan tool.

Man...conservatives are getting the wrath of the Obama administration. They are suing many conservatives. Threatening to sue Standard and Poors and today Moody's coming out with a negative reveiw of O`Care and how it is going to be bad for the country. Will they be sued next? So many people have become afraid to speak out against the tyranny of this administration.

D`Souza first wrote a great and revealing book on Obama, called The Roots of Obama's Rage and I own it. If you dare read it, you will KNOW what is coming down hard and fast, for the sheeple headed for slaughter....

“As we have long said, this office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement. “If, as alleged, the defendant directed others to make contributions to a Senate campaign and reimbursed them, that is a serious violation of federal campaign finance laws.”

Doesn't it strike anyone odd that campaign charges just suddenly come out of the blue, a full year and two months after the election? I smell an Obam---er rat.

Nope. Only out of control, impulsive Leftists and Progressives would seriously think that at this point and presuming you aren't part of either the defense nor prosecution...

You haven't enough evidence (You ain't privvy to it.) with which to make an informed opinion.

Conservatives know this.

Your little joke is on you.

What reason would Obama have to suddenly go after Dinesh D'Souza? Most Americans don't even know who he is. Because he was debating Bill Ayers? Who cares? It just never crossed the minds of some Republicans that one of their darlings could possibly have done something wrong. They have to jump to the most extreme of conspiracy theories instead.

This guy has Obama's number.

And if Ayers were to say in such a public forum. as Dartmouth would be, what he'd admitted to two individual reporters on separate occasions, though ambiguously kiddingly, that he (Ayers) had actually penned Obama's autobiography, well, Obama would be toast.

If it was important enough to him to orchestrate so many people's silence until now, it's just as important that he maintain their silence.

And he has magical powers of getting people to do things HIS WAY after meeting with them.

Maybe D'Souza couldn't be approached privately so Obama is sending this shot across D'Souza's bow and in public so EVERYONE will get the message.

And he is uncaring of who knows he is sending a threat to either of the participants in the debate.

If his thinly veiled warning had a message, it might be something like this, from Obama to Ayers AND D'Souza:

"Talk about anything you want in your Dartmouth debate. But don't mention my name involving anything more than just routine anti-Administration allegations. If you do, I know how to make you sorry you ever crossed me. You think an indictment is bad? I can make you go away, like *that*."

If Ayers is really his friend, as some on the right claim, why wouldn't he just approach him about it, instead of going through the trouble of falsifying a crime? And how exactly would Obama be toast? He isn't up for reelection, and having Ayers pen your autobiography isn't an impeachable offense.

Dinesh D'Souza is getting exactly what he asked for. Don’t mess with the President unless you are walking as straight a line as the pope. D’Souza hasn’t!:clap2:

Please identify your subjects,

Who he?

Who his?

And who him?

Obama would suffer the loss of support from those idealists who had faith in him to be upstanding and honorable and righteous.

By lying all these years about how he penned his own autobiography, Obama has to make sure NOBODY lets the cat out of the bag.

Obama has lots of shitting left remaining to do to the framework of our government, our economic system, our Constitution, our fellow Americans and our allies around the world he still has yet to torpedo.

Having it come out that he has been lying about the authorship of, "Dreams" will scuttle his plans to shit in the remaining places in American life he hasn't completed his befouling. Places like, in government, foreign policy, immigration, entitlements, taxes, health care, the military, industry and the economy and etc. See, he intends to befoul all of America before leaving office.

Losing face would strip him of support from Whites.

As far as his Black support, well, we know how we can be. And few Black people from where I grew up would get too upset about his lying about writing a damn book.

But we wouldn't comprise a large enough base of support to save his presidency if something like that was revealed.

He'd go down.

Hard.

Yeah, "Zero Tolerance" unless it's an open and shut case against the New Black Panther Party. Then they drop the charges.
