    U.S. seeks up to 16 months in prison for Dinesh D'Souza

    U.S. seeks up to 16 months in prison for Dinesh D'Souza

    The government said a 10- to 16-month prison sentence was appropriate for D'Souza, and necessary to deter others from abusing the election process, including "well-heeled individuals who are tempted to use their money to help other candidates."
    It also said D'Souza waited to "the last possible moment" prior to trial before admitting guilt, and then went on TV shows and the Internet to complain about being "selectively" targeted for prosecution, and having little choice but to plead guilty.
    "Based on the defendant's own post-plea statements, the court should reject the defendant's claims of contrition on the eve of sentencing," prosecutors led by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in Manhattan said in the filing.
    Benjamin Brafman, a lawyer for D'Souza, said in response to the filing: "Any suggestion that Mr. D'Souza has not fully accepted responsibility for his conduct is patently absurd."
    Isn't he smart enough to know that if he wants to give a lot of money to a politician, he should start a PAC?

    Apparently not? In fact, I think this is more evidence just how "not smart" he really is. Look at the nonsense that comes out of his mouth most of the time.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Exhibit #1 is complaining on the internet about being targeted and then walking into court the next day and claiming that he's sorry he did it.

    You missed the part where Mr. Morality was having sex with one of his employees and projecting that great married man family image...

    It happens so often among these hypocrites, it's only news when they don't screw around.
