WASHINGTON, January 24, 2014 — The Hollywood Reporter announced that author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza has been released on a $500,00 bond. Communities released information on the filmmakers arrest yesterday stating D’Souza was indicted by a Manhattan federal grand jury on charges that he made arrangements to give excessive contributions to a candidate for U.S. Senate.

According to Reuters, the indictment alleges that D’Souza reimbursed $20,000 to “straw donors” that he asked to donate to a U.S. Senate campaign  D’Souza was charged in the indictment with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made.

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.

D’Souza, a conservative intent on holding the Obama administration accountable, claims he is now being targeted by an Obama appointee. Another conservative filmmaker, James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, announced this week that he, too, is being targeted.

The case is U.S. v. D’Souza, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 14-cr-00034.

    And this is why when a President or any politician uses his office to punish people i.e. The IRS against the Tea Party 501c3’s, The overseeing body MUST immediately investigate and hold those responsible Accountable. Especially when it is The President of the United States. or it will only continue with greater veracity and regularity. Just look at What is happening here….

    Up until Obama America has been very good about allowing the voice of dissent to be heard. Obama is such a wuss he can’t stand the heat that comes with his job. He’s also petty, vindictive, and cruel. This is a manifestation of these facts.

    • James R. Reynolds

      You should look at Woodrow Wilson and his administration during Worlds War I and FDR and his administration during the Great Depression and WWII. This is not the first time tactics such as this have been used and it is not the first time the IRS has been used either.

    Didn’t Obama take donations on his website from foreign donors? This is just once instance among many were he and his administration seems to pick and choose which laws he wants to enforce,

  • Keith Johnson Ccra

    This is a price we pay for just telling the truth about Obama!

  • John G.

    Perhaps those who “abuse their power” require a reminder that no man is above the law?

    Congressional Investigators are you listening?

  • outrageous! is this a left wing conspiracy to shut all of us up?

    • Joyce Laverne Sullens

      He is a very powerful person and will do what ever it takes to get & do what he wants because he has some Americans & foreign leaders behind him to take this country down.

    • Dean Thompson

      Yes, it is an outrageous conspiracy to apply the law…

      • ok wise*ss, ,but why did they wait till now?? & why did dems get charged w/ only a misdemeaner when they did the same thing?? hypocrisy never gets old does it? this admin practices selective prosecution & you damn well know it!!!

  • Dean Thompson

    Rules on campaign contributions are pretty clear. Dinesh funnelled money to this campaign through both his wife AND his mistress. He cheated the rules, and should pay the price.
    There’s too much money in politics.

  • Dean Thompson

    De Souza, the big moral campaigner, comes out as as a hypocrite. Funnelling money through your mistress… AND your wife… and he accuses Obama’s govt. of corruption… pot meet kettle.
