Revenge is a Dinesh best served cold

Like you, I have suffered through the strange career arc of one Dinesh D’Souza. Born into privilege in a third-world country, rose through the ranks of the wingnut welfare system, author of several highly inaccurate books and writer of more terrible columns than I care to recount or remember, Mr D’Souza may be finally be facing some fateful consequences for his many instances of mendacity:

TPM — Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza has been indicted on federal charges of violating campaign finance laws, the the U.S attorney in Manhattan announced on Thursday. The indictment accused D’Souza of participating in a straw donation scheme to funnel money to an unnamed Senate campaign. He was charged with one count of making more than $10,000 of contributions in the names of others and one count of causing false statements. The indictment alleged D’Souza “knowingly made and caused to be made” contributions “in the names of others” during 2012. According to the indictment, D’Souza then “reimbursed others with whom he was associated and who he had directed to contribute a total of $20,000 to the campaign.”

I don’t know if that has any teeth or not. But I hope it does and I hope they are sharp.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

    I’ve listened to his crazy debates with Hitchens and others on religion. I saw him on book TV talking crazy talk about Obama.

    @ ^ thompjs : Book TV – what?

    Nice pun in the title here, DarkSyde, and agreed.

    There should be consequences for telling so many falsehoods and making the world so much more hateful.

    This goes to show the depth of the pseudo in D’Souza’s pseudo-intellectualism. Only a moron would engage in such a transparent money-laundering scheme to evade limits on campaign contributions. And for a relatively paltry amount, too. D’Souza must have believed he was safely above the law.
