New York Post: D’Souza Can Stop Seeing Shrink, Judge Rules

Originally posted at the New York Post.

Conservative scribe Dinesh D’Souza must serve community service for the rest of his five-year probation on his campaign finance conviction, but​ ​he can stop seeing his shrink.

D’Souza appeared for a status conference on his probation conditions in Manhattan federal court ​Thursday, with his lawyer Ben Brafman asking judge Richard Berman whether D’Souza has to keep attending therapy sessions.

“The therapist indicated that he no longer needs therapy. We’d ask Your Honor to suspend that condition of probation,” Brafman said.

“The therapy was never intended as a punishment. Therapy doesn’t work if sides aren’t interested,” Berman said.

“Whether I think therapy is valuable or not, it won’t be valuable if the participants don’t think it’s valuable.”

Berman also asked D’Souza how he liked his community service.

“It’s been time-consuming but very interesting and I’ve gotten to know my students very well,” D’Souza answered, referring to the required eight hours per week he spends teaching English as a second language.

The brief conference took place in Berman’s robing room, where the judge recently tried to hammer out a settlement between lawyers for the NFL and quarterback Tom Brady in the “Deflategate” case.

D’Souza pleaded guilty last year to illegally making $20,000 in contributions in the names of others for Republican Wendy Long’s failed 2012 bid to defeat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

    Actually, they where afraid that you’d convert another shrink into the common sense club.

    As far as I’m concerned the authorities messing with you are the ones who need therapy.

    Dinesh….I’d really like to know: how “biased” was this shrink they foisted upon you? Was he part of your reeducation into the ‘joys’ of Leftwing Orthodoxy? What reason did they give you for insisting you needed a shrink? Other than being a “conservative” like the rest of us crazy people, of course. (sarcasm)

    So the brain washing finally sank in? Or did the shrink lose his mind? Whatever the reason, WELCOME BACK, Dinesh!!! ????

    Isn’t it interesting that for a 20,000 supposed illegal campaign contribution, the government goes after this man.
    Quite hypocritical when you look at what Hillary has done or not done, and she will probably walk away scott free! Hmmmmm!
