Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: January of 2014
Categories: Laws & Crime & Dinesh D'Souza
Dinesh D'Souza, a prominent conservative commentator, has been charged with "making illegal contributions to a United States Senate campaign in the names of others and causing false statements to be made to the Federal Election Commission in connection with those contributions." D'Souza is accused of reimbursing upwards of $20,000 to individuals that donated to an unnamed candidate. Update: D'Souza plead guilty to a single felony charge of 'making illegal campaign contributions to a U.S. Senate campaign.' The felony count carries a maximum of 24 months in prison, but the deal D'Souza struck with authorities asks for a sentence between 10 and 16 months.
