Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza pled guilty to campaign law violations last Tuesday. D’Souza violated the law by getting friends to contribute to a political campaign (straw contributors) and then reimbursing them. It’s an explicitly illegal scam to evade campaign donation limits.
D’Souza is known primarily for his book: The Roots of Obama’s Rage and his book and film Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream.
