Prison For D’Souza, Beach Time For Corzine

(The Federalist)- Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza pleaded guilty to breaking campaign finance laws. He was accused of having urged two friends to make $10,000 contributions to a Senate candidate and then reimbursing them. This is an illegal work-around of campaign contribution limits.

He won’t be sentenced until Sept. 23 but faces 16 months in prison and a $30,000 fine.

So a guy does something wrong and pleads guilty. What’s the big deal?

Well, there’s the ridiculosity (that’s a word, right?) of such campaign finance laws and the pretty serious looming sentence for the crime. Prison.

I should probably mention at this point that D’Souza really, really, really doesn’t like President Obama. In 2012 he produced a popular documentary called 2016: Obama’s America, a harshly critical look at Obama’s worldview and how it affected his governing. That was in turn based on a book called The Roots of Obama’s Rage. Not that D’Souza has avoided criticism from the right, but his disdain for progressives is returned in spades.
