Conservative pundit Dinesh D’Souza gets a slap on the wrist and avoids the joint.
Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza avoided prison on Tuesday when a U.S. judge sentenced him to serve eight months in a community confinement center after he pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance law.
D’Souza, 53, was ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan to live in a center, which would allow him to leave during non-residential hours for employment, for the first eight months of a five-year probationary period.
Berman also ordered D’Souza to perform one day of community service a week during probation, undergo weekly therapy and pay a $30,000 fine.
D’Souza, a frequent critic of U.S. President Barack Obama, admitted in May to illegally reimbursing two “straw donors” who donated $10,000 each to the unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign in New York of Wendy Long, a Republican he had known since attending Dartmouth College in the early 1980s.
“It was a crazy idea, it was a bad idea,” D’Souza told Berman before being sentenced. “I regret breaking the law.”
His minions were all crying that he was being singled out by the evil Kenyan secret Muslim gay socialist dictator for daring to challenge his powers. Actually, if Barack Obama had that much power, Mr. D’Souza would have disappeared without a trace long ago. Now he can write a book about how hard life is in stir.

I stopped in at the store on the way home last night. I was in for about ten minutes and when I came out, someone had knocked off the passenger-side rearview mirror on the Mustang. The whole thing. It was dangling by the cord that runs the adjustment motor.
I was parked well within the lines and when I went into the store, there were no cars on either side of me.
Of course no one saw a thing.
