A conservative scholar and author known recently for his critical works on President Barack Obama was indicted in New York on charges he violated campaign finance laws, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.
Federal prosecutors said Dinesh DSouza, who made the anti-Obama documentary 2016: Obamas America, was scheduled to be arraigned Friday on charges he directed $20,000 in illegal contributions to be made in the New York Senate race in 2012. The candidate he supported was Wendy Long, who lost to Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand.
Prosecutors said he directed people to make the contributions to the campaign and then reimbursed them, which is a violation of election law that limits total contribution from one person to one candidate at $5,000.

If he did that, he's screwed, selective prosecution or not.
Kenyan payback and revenge.
Eric Holder will get right on it.
Dinesh closed “2016” by intimating that Obama intends to UNILATERALLY do away with the nuke capability of the USA.
With NO hope of any other real legacy, I think he may just do it.
isn’t that basically what George Steinbrenner did for Nixon back in the 70s?
I’m suprised the Socialists have waited this long to seek revenge from this bold dissenter. patriot.
It costs far less to play by the rules. I don’t understand the rationale behind these alleged violations assuming ignorance isn’t a factor.
I agree. People will try to make excuses, but it doesn’t matter your political beliefs, you don’t break the law.
Now, we also have to say that he is presumed innocent by the justice system until evidence has been presented of his guilt.
I’ve always said that Obama is the affirmative action Hitler. This is his revenge for 2016.
VJ promised what they would do to their enemies after they got re-elected. That’s why so man GOPers are scared to death.
Sooner or later they had to notice that it was an anti-Mohammed video!
Collectivism can never be criticized - ever.
Maybe Dinesh should hold a press conference and declare “I have a pen and a phone.” Then it would be okay.
I’m sure we’ll be getting to the bottom of who really made all those donations by credit card when the function to require the reporting the donors location was turned off by Obama’s campaign.
And how about Hillary and her bags of money or Algore and his money haul from the monks who take a vow of poverty. Yeah....Holder will get right on it.

I’ve been saying this for a long time. Obama did his dissertation on nuclear disarmament. He’s wanted that for a long time. The funny thing is, he tried to cut a deal with Putin to disarm nukes, as an excuse to disarm ours, and Putin told him to pound sand. He wasn’t interested in it at all. That’s thwarted Obama for a while now, as he can’t use some nuclear disarmament treaty with Russia as an excuse to get rid of our nukes. Now he will lay in wait and try to do it unilaterally, probably in his last year in office. At that point, the only possible response is to impeach the bastard.

That’s what I’ve feared from the beginning. The question is, are there any patriots left to oppose him?
What about all the contributions Obama got in his 2008 campaign from overseas they were shady.
I don’t believe the allegation myself we will just have to wait and see.
