Dinesh D’Souza Indicted for Campaign Finance Fraud

by Greg Pollowitz

He famously fretted about the future in his documentary “2016: Obama’s America,” but 2014’s not looking too good for conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza either.

D’Souza, 52, pleaded not guilty on Friday to charges he made illegal contributions to New York Republican senate hopeful Wendy Long in her ill-fated 2012 campaign. He faces up to seven years in prison if convicted.

Long, an old friend of D’Souza’s from their Dartmouth days, will testify against him at trial, prosecutor Carrie Cohen told Judge Richard Berman at the “Roots of Obama’s Rage” author’s arraignment.

Long “informed the government that Mr. D’Souza lied to her about the source of those donations,” Cohen said.

She said D’Souza had exceeded campaign contribution limits by giving her cash through two of his married friends. . .
