Nobody Goes to Jail These Days


 Someone wake up Dinesh D'Souza before he sleeps through his stories:
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, says he’s proud of the fact “there hasn’t been a major scandal” during the administration’s six years in office.
Axelrod was responding to a question from the audience about the so-called Washington revolving door between lobbyists and the White House during a discussion of his recent book at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.
Somewhere, a man's head just exploded in a spasm of outrage and you can hear the indignant persecution complex of D'Souza begin anew:
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.
So, just to recap--none of the Obama appointees have gone to jail, only a handful have done anything wrong, and one of the most prominent critics of the Obama Administration can't even get sent to jail in this modern era of elitist backscratching and corruption. A few people have resigned, but, big deal, right? Nobody's being dumped in a Federal Prison anywhere.

What does that tell you about where this country is headed right now? Nobody will ever go to jail for anything ever again.
