Dinesh D’Souza Slapped With Campaign Fraud Charges
Posted on Jan 23, 2014
Onetime conservative wunderkind-turned-filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, who brought “2016: Obama’s America” to the big screen in 2012, is now further entrenched in the world of dirty politics.
D’Souza, who rose from Reaganite beginnings to become a fixture on the ’90s speaking circuit, stands accused by federal prosecutors of funneling $20,000 in illegal contributions to New York Senate contender Wendy Long, a Republican, also in 2012. That was a busy year for the commentator-filmmaker, apparently, as he also left his position as president of the King’s College that October after it was discovered he was engaged to one Mrs. Denise Odie Joseph while still married himself.

Adding to the sting of the campaign finance fraud accusation is that, ultimately, Long lost out to her incumbent challenger, Kirsten Gillibrand.
