In case you haven’t heard, adulterer, and now convicted felon, Dinesh D’Souza plead guilty to making illegal campaign donations in a US Senate race. D’Souza had two people donate to Wendy Long, then reimbursed them for their donations, a clear violation of federal law. Since D’Souza’s arrest he claimed he was innocent and the government was prosecuting him because of a movie he made a couple of years ago about Obama. He made the conservative rounds to plead his case and to drum up interest in an upcoming movie. Senator Ted Cruz even got in on the act, claiming political persecution. That all changed yesterday, when D’Souza told the judge, “I knew that causing a campaign contribution to be made in the name of another was wrong and something the law forbids. I deeply regret my conduct.” D’Souza didn’t say he NOW knows those contributions were illegal, he said he KNEW AT THE TIME they were made.

A self-respecting pundit or journalist who helped pimp D’Souza’s lies about his innocence should now revisit the topic, say they were wrong, and ignore anything else D’Souza may say or do in the future. But that’s not what will happen. Once sentencing is over, D’Souza will go back to the trusty right-wing noise machine and claim he only plead guilty because the government had rigged the case against him. He will swear that Obama was personally out to get him (even though the judge said D’Souza had presented no evidence of selective prosecution), and the rabid right will lap it all up and throw more money at his pseudo-documentaries. One thing you can count on, wingnut welfare never runs dry.

  1. The only thing missing was D’Souza explaining to the court, “I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro.”

    It’s mind-boggling how conservatives tend to champion so many crackpots.

      You’d think they’d learn at some point, but no. They just keep on with the crazy.
