Conservative author Dinesh D’Souza, who was indicted in 2014 for using straw donors to contribute $20,000 to a GOP candidate in 2012, is demanding equal justice under the law for liberal comedian Rosie O’Donnell, who made illegal contributions to five different Democratic political candidates.
5 Different Addresses, 4 Different Names
As BizPac Review has reported, O’Donnell used five different addresses, according to records published in the New York Post, and four variations of her name to illegally donate to five liberal politicians, including Trump-hating Democrat Adam Schiff.
During the 2017-2018 election cycle, Rosie contributed more than $90,000 to Democratic politicians in a self-proclaimed bid to undermine a sitting U.S. president.
D’Souza said O’Donnell’s case is far worse than his, and since he was prosecuted, she should be too. “Five times more egregious than my case,” he tweeted. “Now let’s see if Lady Justice is truly blind.”

D’Souza added: “I notice the leftist weasels who call me “felon” have gone dead silent about Rosie committing 5 – yes five — campaign finance violations.”

Dinesh D’Souza Was Maliciously Prosecuted
Conservatives agree that D’Souza was targeted for malicious prosecution by the Obama administration, but the left has remained curiously silent in demanding that O’Donnell be punished for violating the same law that D’Souza did.
D’Souza claimed that in 2014, the Obama FBI red-flagged him as an “Obama critic” and used $100,000 in taxpayer money to prosecute his $20,000 case. D’Souza believes he was targeted by the Obama administration for criticizing the former president.
In 2012, D’Souza directed a damning documentary entitled “2016: Obama’s America” detailing Obama’s radical socialist leanings and abuse of power. The film, which was based on D’Souza’s 2010 New York Times bestseller, “The Roots of Obama’s Rage,” warned Americans not to re-elect him in 2012.
Given how the Obama White House weaponized the FBI and CIA to target Trump aides with the fruitless “Russia collusion” probe, D’Souza’s claims that he was maliciously prosecuted are credible.

D’Souza was indicted and got five years probation, eight months confinement in a halfway house, and a $30,000 fine. He avoided jail time by pleading guilty.
This is not the first time that Rosie O’Donnell has broken the law in her rabid attempts to obstruct President Trump. In December 2017, Rosie offered a $2 million bribe to Republican senators if they voted against Trump’s tax cuts. No one took Rosie up on her offer, since all 50 GOP senators voted in favor of the Trump tax plan.
Under Federal Election Commission (FEC) rules, both donors and candidates are liable for political contributions that exceed the legal limit, but these types of violations are rarely prosecuted. This is why the Obama administration’s dogged 2014 prosecution of Dinesh D’Souza was so shocking.
If someone repeatedly breaks campaign finance laws, they are usually fined. Stay tuned to find out what (if anything) happens to O’Donnell.
