Dinesh D’Souza, the man behind the misleading sleeper hit 2016: Obama’s America, is dealing with an embarrassing personal situation seemingly in conflict with his status as a culture warrior, as he has allegedly been caught out staying overnight in a hotel with a woman (who he is said to have introduced as his fiancée) who is not his wife.
Dinesh D’Souza has been married to Dixie D’Souza, nee Brubaker, since 1992, and the couple have one daughter. So why was D’Souza spotted at a conference checking into the Comfort Suites with a twenty-something conservative blogger named Denise Odie Joseph II? One Evangelical magazine blew the lid off the story, seeking answers from D’Souza after the allegations surfaced.
Salon quotes the publication, World, as exposing D’Souza’s alleged infidelity:
“Although D’Souza has been married for 20 years to his wife, Dixie, in South Carolina he was with a young woman, Denise Odie Joseph II, and introduced her to at least three people as his fiancée … Finally, near 11 p.m., event organizer Tony Beam escorted D’Souza and Joseph to the nearby Comfort Suites. Beam noted that they checked in together and were apparently sharing a room for the night in the sold-out hotel. The next morning, around 6 a.m., Beam arrived back at the hotel and called up to D’Souza’s room. ‘We’ll be down in 10 minutes,’ D’Souza told Beam. D’Souza and Joseph came down together, and Beam took them to the airport.”
Dinesh D’Souza is president at Evangelical King’s College in New York, and the organization is said to be “looking into the situation” involving D’Souza’s alleged affair.
After the story broke, the conservative muckraker is said to have “suspended” his engagement to Joseph, owing to the fact he has not yet obtained a divorce or annulment for his marriage to Dixie. As for Joseph, a Facebook page reported to belong to D’Souza’s alleged companion shows a public post promoting the conservative commentator’s hit film.
Wonkette grabbed a quote from Joseph’s blog decrying hypocritical married men with weak morals, in which she is said to have bleated:
“RINO Republicans are analogous to fathers who proudly proclaim their conservativeness at dinner parties or perhaps during early afternoon phone calls to El Rusbo’s show, but let their ‘independently-minded’ wives (translation–women who get their marching orders from St. Oprah or more recently, The View ) pump their teenagers full of birth control and encourage their daughters to live the lives for which their bra-burning foremothers fought so valiantly.”
Are you surprised to find yet another loud conservative moralizer facing up to the scandal that has hit Dinesh D’Souza?
