Dinesh DíSouza Is Charged With Using Straw Donors to Give to a Campaign
Dinesh DíSouza, a best-selling conservative author and filmmaker, was indicted on Thursday on charges that he used straw donors to illegally donate to a 2012 Senate campaign.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan said that Mr. DíSouza encouraged others to give $20,000 to a Senate candidate and reimbursed them for the donations. Election law prohibits such arrangements and caps donations at $5,000 per donor to any one candidate.
