Dinesh D'Souza is now basically taking a victory lap around conservative media outlets after having avoided a prison sentence for violating campaign finance laws, appearing on Glenn Beck's radio show today to assert that he was directly targeted by President Obama because Obama is "a petty, vindictive guy."
D'Souza insisted that he was only prosecuted for breaking the law because President Obama lashes out at all of his critics because "he is a very dysfunctional guy with a very dysfunctional family. I mean, he's got family members who have each other followed, they spread rumors and try to undermine each other, they hire people to look out and so this is a very bizarre situation and Obama is a very petty, vindictive guy."
"I don't have to speculate that he doesn't like me, I know that," D'Souza asserted, "and it's hard for me to believe that [the government was] treating me normally, like any other guy who did this."
Glenn Beck agreed, declaring that D'Souza was "the first real political prisoner that I have seen this president make."
"This is a political prisoner, make no mistake," Beck said. "He was only prosecuted, they only found this stuff because they were going through everything to stop him. And it's sick. It's really sick":
