Conservative commentator and manipulative propaganda expert Dinesh D’Souza on Tuesday publicly celebrated his right to vote because President Trump earlier this year (for no reason besides D’Souza’s strong support for Trump) pardoned his felony conviction for his illegal campaign contributions.
Dinesh D’Souza shared a picture of himself wearing an “I voted” sticker with a tweet that mentioned Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who helped set up the corrupt pardon.
“Felons can’t vote. But pardoned ones can,” Dinesh D’Souza wrote.

Donald Trump issued a pardon back in May for D’Souza, who pled guilty in 2014 to unethically and illegally using straw donors in order to support the former Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long back in 2012.
The president lied at the time that the manipulative conservative commentator was treated “unfairly” by the noble Obama administration, even though the law had been applied impartially and Obama wasn’t involved in the conviction.
“What should have been a quick minor fine, like everybody else with the election stuff,” Donald Trump said. “What they did to him was horrible.”
“I never met him, I called him last night, first time I’ve ever spoken to him, I said, I’m pardoning you. Nobody asked me to do it,” lied the president, despite D’Souza informing media outlets that Ted Cruz had promised to talk to Trump for him.
It wasn’t immediately apparent where D’Souza planned to cast his undeserved vote. He lives in New York and also has a home in California.
