Prison for Dinesh D'Souza, beach time for Jon Corzine

When Corzine escaped any punishment last year, there was surprisingly little coverage and certainly no outrage in the media — even in a political climate where members of the Democratic Party’s base were calling for the heads of banksters and Goldman Sachs and its alumni, in particular, were being compared to a politically-connected Vampire Squid.

Maybe in addition to having very close friends in the White House, the U.S. Senate, New Jersey and Wall Street, Corzine didn’t do anything worth prosecuting related to MF Global bankruptcy and the straight-up loss of more than a billion dollars. And maybe in addition to having enemies in the White House and other corridors of power, D’Souza’s $20,000 crime makes him Public Enemy #1. I don’t know.

But if there were selective enforcement of laws under this administration, that would be something worth caring just a bit about.
