The Dinesh D'Souza conservative brand has been taking hits since 2012. There he was riding high with his anti-Obama documentary "2012: Obama's America." That reinforced his credentials as a GOP Idea Entrepreneur. That was then.
Then in 2012 he got the boot from his job as President of King's College, which frames sexual intercourse as a gift only for heterosexual married couples. The institution accused him, a married man, of using that gift with a young female conservative blogger.
Now, reports Bloomberg, D'Souza got whacked by Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara for illegal campaign contributions during the New York U.S. Senate race in 2012. He, states Bloomberg:
" ... was accused in a grand jury indictment of having others make contributions to the unidentified candidate totalling four times the maximum of $5,000 that an individual is allowed to give during the campaign cycle."
During that campaign the GOP candidate was Wendy Long. She lost to Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand. Here you can read the Bloomberg coverage.
One wonders if D'Souza has the stuff of one of Shakespeare's tragic heroes.
Did he have the intellectual range and capacity for suffering of a Hamlet?
Was he as deluded as a King Lear or Othello?
Or, could he have been as malevolent a creature as MacBeth?
Perhaps a documentary should be made about him.
