Great Moments in GOP Election Fraud: Dinesh D’Souza Indicted
You know how conservatives are always issuing dire warnings about election fraud, and demanding tough new voter ID laws in disadvantaged areas to make sure the lower classes don’t cheat?
Well, um, yeah. Dinesh D’Souza Indicted Over Campaign Contributions.
NEW YORK — Dinesh D’Souza, a conservative commentator and best-selling author, has been indicted by a federal grand jury for arranging excessive campaign contributions to a candidate for the U.S. Senate.
The candidate was Wendy Long, a Republican who sought to unseat Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand as New York’s junior senator in 2012, according to a person familiar with the case. …
The indictment said D’Souza directed individuals to contribute a total $20,000 to the campaign of an unnamed Senate candidate in 2012 and then reimbursed them for their contributions.
Federal law in 2012 limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.
