Dinesh D’Souza Expected To Plead Guilty
Dinesh D’Souza, the Conservative author and filmmaker has been successful in selling some pretty tall tales to his fans but apparently doesn’t feel like his story telling will work with the Feds. Later today D’Souza is expected to plead guilty to charges stemming from illegal campaign donations.
Prosecutors had charged that Mr. D’Souza arranged to have two friends each contribute $10,000 on behalf of themselves and their spouses to the campaign of Wendy E. Long, a challenger to Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, a Democrat, with the understanding that he would reimburse them. That resulted in a $20,000 contribution that exceeded the $5,000 individual limit for the 2012 election cycle.
