Post-sentencing: D’Souza preparing film for 2016

‘I’ve already turned the initial wheels in motion’

If federal prosecutors had their way, Obama nemesis Dinesh D’Souza would now be preparing for up to 16 months in prison. Instead, as he revealed to WND in an exclusive interview after his sentencing Tuesday for a campaign finance violation, he is laying the groundwork for another blockbuster film timed for the thick of a crucial election campaign.

D’Souza, who released “2016: Obama’s America” during the 2008 presidential campaign and “America: Imagine the World Without Her” in July, told WND that U.S. District Judge Richard Berman’s decision Tuesday morning to give him probation and community service rather than a prison sentence allows him to “continue to do what I have been doing, which is to be a public analyst and critic of politics and culture.”

“I’ve already turned the initial wheels in motion, and I will be making a film in 2016,” he told WND.

As WND reported, D’Souza was sentenced in Manhattan in his campaign finance case to eight months in a work-release center in San Diego during five years of probation and a $30,000 fine. He also must set aside one day a week during his probation to teach English to non-English speakers.

D’Souza pleaded guilty in May to arranging “straw donors” to contribute $10,000 to the failed 2012 U.S. Senate campaign of Wendy Long, a college friend.
