    '2016: Obama's America' Filmmaker Indicted for Violating Campaign Finance Laws

    '2016: Obama's America' Filmmaker Indicted for Violating Campaign Finance Laws - The Hollywood Reporter

    Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, whose documentary 2016: Obama's America took a critical look at President Barack Obama and was a surprise hit in 2012, will be arrested in New York on Friday for allegedly violating campaign-finance laws, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

    Federal authorities accuse D'Souza of donating more than is legal to the campaign of Wendy Long, who ran in 2012 for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton but lost to now-Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Long, though, is not mentioned in an indictment obtained by THR on Thursday.

    Insiders say D'Souza has been friends with Long since they attended Dartmouth College together in the early 1980s. According to the indictment, D'Souza donated $20,000 to Long's campaign by aggregating the money from various people and falsely reporting the source of the funds. But Gerald Molen, a co-producer of 2016, says the charge is politically motivated.

    He shouldn't have broken the law, which seems like he knowingly did, given the method he chose to do the donations.

    I like how you immediately jump to a conspiracy theory without any information or facts to support this theory. How is it you can still stand up straight after twisting and turning so hard, craning your neck into such awkward and uncomfortable positions to avoid admitting what shouldn't be a hard truth at all, I mean its not like you've got a personal investment in this guy sure he doesn't like Obama and you don't like Obama either but it is too much to admit that some people who dislike Obama also may commit crimes or may generally just not be good or honest people?

    Also anyone who watched his "documentary" and actually felt informed by the trash this "journalist" put together should be ashamed of themselves. That's big air quotes too, Chris Farley style.



    I watched a "documentary."
