Dinesh D'SouzaThe conservative commentator and best-selling author Dinesh D'Souza has been indicted by a federal grand jury, for arranging excessive campaign contributions to a candidate for the US Senate.

According to an indictment made public on Thursday in federal court in Manhattan, around August 2012 D'Souza reimbursed people he had directed to contribute $20,000 to the candidate's campaign. The candidate was not named in the indictment.

Attempts to reach D'Souza and a lawyer representing him were unsuccessful.

D'Souza was charged in the indictment with one count of making illegal contributions in the names of others, and one count of causing false statements to be made. In 2012, federal law limited primary and general election campaign contributions to $2,500 each, for a total of $5,000, from any individual to any one candidate.

"As we have long said, this office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process," the US attorney for Manhattan, Preet Bharara, said in a statement released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Bharara is an Obama appointee.
