WSJ: Indian American filmmaker indicted for making illegal campaign contributions

Dinesh D'SouzamIndian American filmmaker, conservative commentator and author, Dinesh D’Souza, has been indicted on charges of using straw donors to illegally donate to a 2012 Senate campaign.

The indictment has been overseen by US attorney, Preet Bharara, who has made a name for himself for prosecuting financial fraud and insider trading on Wall Street. He recently made headlines for acting as the prosecutor in the case of Devyani Khobragade, the Indian diplomat accused of underpaying and overworking her maid, Sangeeta Richard.

D’Souza, a former policy advisor and friend of President Ronald Reagan, is accused of funneling $20,000 to an unnamed US Senate candidate. U.S. law allows individuals to donate a maximum $5,000 to an individual candidate.
