Dinesh DSouzas Series of Unfortunate Events
Author and filmmaker Dinesh DSouza was indicted for encouraging fraudulent campaign donationsjust the latest in a spiral that has all but sunk his career in the conservative movement.
Conservative author, filmmaker and provocateur Dinesh DSouza was indicted Thursday on charges of using straw donors to make illegal contributions to a college classmates 2012 campaign.
The indictment, filed in U.S. District Court in New York, accuses DSouza of willfully and knowingly surpassing the $5,000 limit for individual campaign donations by directing others to donate to the campaign of Wendy Long, who unsuccessfully challenged New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand in 2012. According to the document, DSouza and his then-wife, Dixie, each contributed $5,000 to Longs campaign, and he reimbursed others for $20,000 he had encouraged them to donate.
DSouza worked with Long on the infamous Dartmouth Review, an edgy conservative newspaper at Dartmouth College known for launching smart young right-wingers to prominence. In 1990, the pair apologized for printing an anti-Semitic quote from Hitlers Mein Kampf in an edition of the publication distributed on Yom Kippuran antic typical of the Reviews ethos of deliberate provocation. Long went on to become an attorney at several conservative institutions, including the Claremont Institute. She made her first run for office in 2012, and lost in a landslide to Gillibrand, New Yorks incumbent Democratic senator.
According to the New York Times, Long raised about $785,000 in the race, with DSouza hosting one of her fundraisers. DSouzas lawyer denied any criminal intent in the apparent plot to reimburse donors to Longs campaign, saying it was at most an act of misguided friendship.
The indictment is just the latest in a tangle of personal and professional difficulties that swarmed around DSouza at what was arguably the height of his success: the popularity of his 2012 anti-Obama documentary 2016: Obamas America. The film, which was released in the summer of 2012 and became a slow-burn hit with conservatives in the run-up to the presidential election, earned over $33 million at the box office and was the highest-grossing documentary since 1982. But just a couple of months into the films promotion, DSouza was out of a job: he resigned his lucrative position as president of the Kings College, a small evangelical Christian school in Manhattan, over reports that he was engaged to a 29-year-old woman while still being married to his wife of 20 years.
DSouzas departure from the Kings College was the symbolic end of his career in the institutional conservative movement, which had grown increasingly exasperated with his string of conspiratorial books that failed to live up to his reputation as a star of conservative scholarship.(One advanced the notion that Americas moral decadence led to 9/11; another launched the meme, which has long since become a political punch line, that Obama was a Kenyan anti-colonialist.) DSouzas tenure at the Kings College was fraught with conflict, as some faculty members viewed him as a name-brand hire who lacked appropriate academic credentials and who was more interested in his own money-making projects than in fundraising for the college.

Are you seriously kidding me?
Let's just see what happens to D'Souza or how far the liberal media will go to demonize him.
They hardly gave Edwards' numerous political and moral sins a glance. All six of his felony charges mysteriously didn't stick or disappeared in a puff of smoke...poof.
Now let's see if D'Souza is crucified, tarred and feathered or burned alive.
