Dinesh D’Souza Indicted for Campaign Finance Fraud

Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative commentator perhaps best known for directing the ant-Obama documentary 2016: Obama’s America, was indicted on federal charges of violating campaign finance laws according to the U.S. attorney in Manhattan.

According to the indictment, D’Souza is being charged with “violating the federal campaign finance laws by making illegal contributions to a United States Senate campaign in the names of others and causing false statements to be made to the Federal Election Commission in connection with those contributions.” D’Souza is expected to appear in the Manhattan federal court tomorrow for an arraignment.

In 2012, D’Souza was forced to step down as dean of the Christian King’s College amid allegations that he had an affair with a younger woman while married.
