    If you are going to commit a crime, go big or go home.

    To be fair, he did predict ruin in Obama's America. Nailed it.

    Besides the fact that it's against the law? D'Souza, once again, isn't practicing what he preaches. First, there was him being a big proponent in "defense of marriage" while at the same time he committing adultery. But to top that off, now he's allegedly breaking the law with financial fraud - this being the same guy who harps about voter fraud. Maybe you don't think anything is wrong with that, but - although I can't speak for all progressives - I would think that they wouldn't condone such hypocrisy, let along the illegal activity. Now cons - they probably would rather look the other way.

    If he is guilty then he deserves to be jailed- I just hope this isn't another payback from the regime

    Not defending D'Souza but I do find chomps "isn't practicing what he preaches" line quite ironic...

    Chomp should have a right to a doctors life and their profession but not a right to chomps life and profession.

    I should know better to go along with your deflection, but read my link below and you'll know why I'm so concerned with the high costs that Americans are still paying in health care. ACA needs to be tweaked to curb these costs .

    Well if he is guilty he needs to punished. Any conservative activist or group that doesn't understand they will be investigated for anything and everything by this corrupt administration is bonkers. The IRS, the NSA, the FBI, The Justice Department, and every other taxpayer funded agency he can use to go after those that oppose him will be, as he has clearly shown in the past. His enemies list is long and as Valerie Jarrett said..

    “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”


    Now that they are done with Dinesh, maybe they can finally look into this..

    Caught using a common basic democrat campaign trick... I guess this means that the democrats are just better at breaking campaign laws than are the republicans.

    Your belief that you should have the right to a doctors life has nothing to do with the disaster of the ACA. You want the government to use force to give you the right to another's life. But you do not want the government to that to you.

    Maybe I am wrong and you no longer support single payer/universal government controlled healthcare. If so I retract my original comment. The fact you deflected to the ACA shows me you still have your quite ironic practice of preaching universal healthcare (owning a doctors life) but not universal "your profession" (owning a right to your life).

    “Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with.”

    That made me laugh. Progressives such as yourself would predictably (a) label the prosecution racist; and (b) claim that the charge involves a "personal failing" - a la Bill Clinton's perjury - which shouldn't impact anyone's view of D'Souza's work.

    That said, if DD is guilty he should pay the price.

    His defense of marriage has nothing to do with adultery, but everything to do with the sanctity of holy matrimony - between one man and one woman. But, breaking the law is breaking the law... He's still just accused at this point.

    And, everytime someone from the Right does something wrong our resident Leftists try and connect everyone on the Right to one persons wrong doing... How "rich" is that.

    When Corzine broke the law did we accuse the Left of collusion? How many times has Obama broken the law? several times... if you think of the Constitution as a set of laws. And that the ACA is a law.

    While I am in full support of D'Souza being held accountable. The fact this is over $20K does raise the skeptical flag wrt the government targeting.

    I just spent over a year dealing with the IRS in which they wrongly said I owed more money. My accountant and I provided proof we did not immediately and it still took a year. At one point my accountant was verbally told (not in writing) that the deduction was being denied because it was residential. Mind you the loan was an SBA loan for small businesses. My assumption is once we finally got it to appeals where the government was going to actually have to defend its position the attorney given the info said what is this nonsense. And I was sent a statement with my balance zeroed out (never received a reason why). No refund for my time and professional fees...

    I just remembered this was the guy who made the "Obama 2016" movie that sharply criticized Obama.

    In reading up on it- this was for the 2012 Senate campaign for Hillary's old seat- a lost cause if there ever was one. So D' Souza is accused of aggregating some donations for a minor election that involved a friend of his. I can't imagine anyone who thought this candidate had a chance. (D' Souza's candidate lost by 45 points.)

    Talk about small potatoes- wow. With the OA's recent record of corruption and going after enemies through the IRS, I'm much more inclined to think this is a product of a witchhunt toward D' Souza as payback for that movie.

    Here's a short article with some background on the case and the Senate race in question...
