Conservative political commentator and author Dinesh DíSouza, who made the film ď2016: Obamaís America,Ē pleaded guilty to violating U.S. campaign finance law by using straw donors to exceed federal limits.
DíSouzaís guilty plea came on the day he was to begin trial on felony charges that he illegally reimbursed two close associates for contributing a total of $20,000 in 2012 to U.S. Senate candidate Wendy Long, a New York Republican. Federal law limits campaign contributions to $5,000 per individual in an election cycle.
DíSouza, of San Diego, had claimed that he was singled out for prosecution because of his views opposing President Barack Obama. The Federal Election Commission usually files civil claims in cases such as his, DíSouza said. Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara called the claim of selective prosecution baseless.
ďWe will investigate and prosecute violations of federal law, particularly those that undermine the integrity of the democratic electoral process, without regard to the defendantís political persuasion or party affiliation,Ē Bharara said in a statement. ďThat is what we did in this case and what we will continue to do.Ē
