Fart of Darkness

Far be it from me to mock that fearless fighter for Empire, former pseudo-intellectualcollege president, and husband Dinesh D'Souza for having gotten busted for the crime of laundering $20,000 in excessive contributions to the 2012 Senate campaign of Wendy Long, a candidate so hopeless that barely a year later even those who voted for her (27%, against Kirsten Gillebrand; incidentally, she also failed to disclose 51.4% of her donations) can't remember her name. You can't suspect him of trying to buy favors from her, since the odds of her ever being able to do him a favor were vanishingly small. I rather think it must have been that "sweet, just, boyish" innate gallantry.
