Dinesh D’Souza been charged with pretty serious campaign finance fraud (straw donations where he funneled money to a Senate candidate — the kind of thing Tigani was convicted of here), and he plays the Conservative Victim Card. Rather than take personal responsibility for his attempt to break the law, he wants the (conservative — because nobody else got time for that) world to know that Obama is targeting D’Sousa because of a movie that no one cared about.
The NJ editorial this AM takes on the case of the subpoena to Peaceful Rioters (from Facebook). Frankly, I wished they would have called for all of the potential parties involved in this thing to cease and desist (I mean, who doesn’t see Setting’s claim of investigation the hateful material delivered to that Hokessin family as anything but a useful cover?). There are far too many Delaware Way hands who have their fingers in the pie here and I really hope that a judge gets to ask point blank exactly why Setting thinks there is a connection to Peaceful Rioters. Seriously, there are plenty of things for the AG to worry about — not the least of which is the illegal trafficking of guns to Delaware; an unfinished implementation of the Crime-Free Rental Housing Program or even the serious conflicts of interest present in Connections employees being on Wilmington City Council. Right?
