The connection between the prosecution of Dinesh D'Souza and the IRS

I don't think it's entirely unreasonable to draw a connection between the IRS repression of conservative groups and the prosecution of D'Souza, a prominent and effective critic of Obama. We know that the IRS and the FBI both exchanged emails and met to discuss the possibility of criminally prosecuting the groups the IRS was targeting for allegedly lying on their tax forms. The IRS told the FBI that, no, they couldn't really go after people like that; the tax law was too vague. Lerner herself expressed the sentiment that "maybe the FEC will save and day." And lo and behold, in a political environment where Obama can accept anonymous donations from anyone with a credit card, D'Souza goes to prison.
