He’s been after president Obama for a while now, manufacturing a bunch of lies and conspiracies about the president of the United States. Now, it seems the conservative nut has found himself in some trouble.
According to reporting by USA Today, Dinesh D’Souza has been indicted on charges of violating federal election laws and could face up to seven years in prison if found guilty, according to documents released Thursday by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and the FBI.
According to a notice emailed to the press, authorities charge D’Souza made illegal contributions to a U.S. Senate campaign in the names of others and caused false statements connected with those contributions to be made to the Federal Election Commission.
Authorities did not name the U.S. Senate candidate. In 2012, D’Souza campaigned for Wendy Long, a Republican who challenged Democratic incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand to represent New York in the U.S. Senate. Long’s campaign website appeared to no longer be operating, and Reuters reported she could not be reached. Gillebrand won the election.
D’Souza, 52, a former policy analyst in the Ronald Reagan White House, will be arraigned Friday in federal court in Manhattan, according to the statement.0
