Dinesh D'Souza was a prominent political opponent of the president during his campaign. Now, he's being charged with campaign finance violations -- allegedly reimbursing others for their political contributions in a Senate campaign, which is illegal because... umm... well... because fuck the people and the First Amendment they rode in on.
Dinesh challenged Obama well enough to get noticed and make the enemies list. Now, in the runup to the 2014 elections, they are taking him out of action early on -- just like the IRS is keeping the Tea Party tied up in red tape and forms in triplicate.
It says something about how far our society has disintegrated -- a word I chose carefully -- that I don't even question whether this is a real charge or just politically motivated bullshit. It's an election year. The man is a well-known critic of Obama. Of course the charges are political bullshit. I'm not talking about presumption of innocence here, I'm talking presumption of guilt on the part of the prosecutors. I'm talking deprivation of rights under color of law. I'm talking about corruptly influencing an election by prosecuting your political opponents. Right here, in America. Just like one of the tin-pot dictatorships Obama grew up in.
