Conservative Commenter Dinesh D’Souza Charged In Campaign Finance Fraud

Controversial conservative commenter and outspoken Christian Dinesh D’Souza has been indicted on charges of breaking some election finance laws—specifically, reimbursing donors so that they could donate more than the $5,000 cap mandated by law. Although his attorneys insist he didn’t know he was breaking the law—“He and the candidate have been friends since their college days, and at most, this was an act of misguided friendship by D’Souza,” said Benjamin Braffman—he’s been arraigned by the District Court of Manhattan.

D’Souza has made a name for himself with fiery opinions regarding President Barack Obama, including his book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage and his documentary, 2016: Obama’s America
