Conservative author Dinesh DSouza was indicted Thursday on federal charges of violating campaign finance laws by using straw donors to funnel money to a U.S. Senate candidate.
The U.S. Attorneys Office for the Southern District of New York announced the grand jury charges in a statement Thursday. DSouza is expected to be arraigned Friday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.
Mr. DSouza did not act with any corrupt or criminal intent whatsoever, Brafman said in the statement. He and the candidate have been friends since their college days, and at worst, this was an act of misguided friendship by DSouza. . .It is important to note that the indictment does not allege a corrupt relationship between Mr. DSouza and the candidate.

....Yet a John Edwards donor was charged with a midemeanor for same crime. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
Maybe his Hollywood Brothers will come to his defence? Oh wait....right he is a conservative.... The Crickets will be a chirping
This is Hitlery starting her scorched earth policies...

I’m going to watch the ABSCAM movie tomorrow.... as I remember they were all demo’s except one...
Pierce O’Donnell, the lawyer who represented Art Buchwald against Paramount Pictures in the case that exposed studio accounting practices, has accepted a plea deal for illegally contributing to John Edwards’ 2004 presidential campaign.
Under the agreement between O’Donnell and federal prosecutors, O’Donnell will receive 60 days in prison, a year of supervised release, 500 hours of community service, plus a $20,000 fine.
O’Donnell was indicted in 2007 and charged with arranging “conduit contributions” to John Edwards’ presidential campaign. O’Donnell was accused of working with an unnamed co-conspirator to solicit contributions for Edwards from employees from O’Donnell’s law firm, with the promise to reimburse them for the contributions. In all, O’Donnell and his co-conspirator raised $26,000 in conduit contributions, according to the grand jury’s indictment.
the war is escalating.
All other law enforcement is at the discretion of the president.

We’re living in a Police State.
If that's what his lawyer is saying, it sounds awfully like a confession. No denial of the facts alleged in the indictment; "I didn't do it with a corrupt intent" is not "I didn't do it."
Concentration camps were first used for political prisoners.
It’s weird how Soros doesn’t get indicted for doing the same thing, but on a vastly larger scale.
Mr. DSouza did not act with any corrupt or criminal intent whatsoever, Brafman said in the statement. He and the candidate have been friends since their college days, and at worst, this was an act of misguided friendship by DSouza. “
If that is indeed the case, his actions do not appear criminal as he and the candidate are longtime friends.
Not to mention Friends of Abe are right now being targeted by the IRS
Seeing how the ‘justice’ department has acted, this is purely political harassment.
Don’t forget Stevens of Alaska. They bankrupted him.
There is no exemption in the law for old friends. If, and it's a big if, he did what he is charged with, then he's a fool. He had to know that he's on the Obama Enemies List, and the Obamunists would try to use it to destroy him.
The Regime is launching Kristallnacht on conservatives.
If this guy has to go to jail for violating a stupid law like this, it will still have been worth it. It's a stupid law.
Tom DeLay, Sarah.....whoever gets in their way they set out to destroy by any means possible.
