Convicted Right Wing Pundit’s Wife: He ‘Physically Abused’ Me
[su_right_ad]It’s now on the public record.
The Smoking Gun has been poring through court documents in the wake of the slap on the wrist given to Dinesh D’Souza, who received eight months in a sort of “halfway house,” five years probation, and a $30,000 fine for egregious violations of federal campaign finance law. And it seems that the court is not the only party that’s been doing plenty of slapping:
During the sentencing hearing, Berman read from a blistering letter submitted to the court by D’Souza’s estranged wife. In the missive, Dixie D’Souza alleged that her ex-spouse forged her signature on one campaign contribution form, and that he had an “abusive nature.”
D’Souza, who was married to the defendant for 20 years, wrote, “In one instance, it was my husband who physically abused me in April 2012 when he, using his purple belt karate skills, kicked me in the head and shoulder, knocking me to the ground and creating injuries that pain me to this day.”
Dinesh D’Souza filed for divorce in October 2012, and that case remains active in California’s Superior Court.
[su_r_sky_ad]In her letter to the court, Dixie D’Souza adds this juicy nugget:
I also have serious questions about Dinesh’s financial disclosures, particularly with regard to amounts he has had on deposit in accounts at banks in India. I believe he has abused his authority over the course of our marriage handling our financial affairs. He has abused it in taking our most important financial documents out of our home before he filed for divorce, buying rental properties in India during our marriage without my knowledge or consent, and numerous financial breaches af fiduciary duties in the California Family Law Court. This shows a continued pattern of hiding financial assets.
