Ben Cohen in The Daily Banter:
There are few things more enjoyable in life than watching a genuine asshole get their comeuppance. Dinesh D’Souza, a man who made a career out of smearing President Obama using every dishonest tactic in the GOP handbook, is almost certainly going to jail after pleading guilty on Tuesday to a campaign finance law violation.
D’Souza avoided a prolonged and embarrassing trial, acknowledging that the case brought against him by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara was beyond dispute. Bharara charged him with using “straw donors” in order to give funds to Republican Wendy Long’s New York U.S. Senate campaign in 2012. D’Souza pleaded guilty to one criminal count of making illegal contributions in the names of others.
According to the Reuters report: “Lawyers for both sides agreed that under advisory federal sentencing guidelines, D’Souza faces between 10 and 16 months in prison.”
As Bob Cesca pointed out, there is “a delicious irony” in someone who accused the president of being a fraud, himself being indicted for fraud. In his breathtakingly dishonest (and ultimately racist) documentary “2016: Obama’s America”, D’Souza essentially claimed that Obama is an undercover radical, anti colonialist, propelled to success by guilty whites (whom he hates), and is ultimately out to destroy America from the inside.
