Dinesh D’Souza was born in Mumbai, India on April 25, 1961. He is the son of Allan D’Souza, a Johnson & Johnson executive, and Margaret D’Souza, a housewife.
Prior to relocating to the United States, Dinesh studied at the Jesuit St. Stanislaus High School in Bombay, graduating in 1976, and then completing his studies at Sydenham College. When he participated in the Rotary Youth Exchange program, he attended an Arizona public school and then enrolled in Dartmouth College, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 1983.
Dinesh was previously married to Dixie Brubaker, and the couple had one daughter, Danielle. The couple divorced in 2012 after it was reported he had an affair. In March 2016, Dinesh married conservative political activist, Deborah Fancher. He has also been in various relationships with prominent conservative personalities, including Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham.
Following his college graduation, Dinesh was hired as editor of The Prospect, a monthly journal financed by Princeton University alumni. He was also a contributing editor for Policy Review. Between 1987 and 1988, Dinesh was tapped to be a policy adviser in President Ronald Reagan White House.
His academic career continued in August 2010 when he was hired to be president of The King’s College, a Christian college.
Dinesh has risen to prominence based on his numerous bestselling non-fiction books, including “Illiberal Education,” “What’s So Great About America,” “Letters to a Young Conservative,” “Obama’s America,” “Life After Death: The Evidence,” and “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left.”
He has also produced a few controversial documentaries that tackle prominent Democrats like former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as the political party. Some of these films include “2016: Obama’s America,” “America: Imagine the World Without Her,” and “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.”
In January 2014, Dinesh was charged with making $20,000 in illegal campaign contributions to the campaign of New York Senate candidate Wendy Long and lying to the Federal Election Commission (FEC). A few months later, he pleaded guilty to one felony count of submitting illegal donations in the name of others. The court sentenced him to five years probation, eight months in a community confinement center, and a $30,000 fine. In May 2018, President Donald Trump granted Dinesh a pardon.
We estimate that Dinesh D’Souza’s net worth is $4 million (2018).
So, how much is $4 million really?
$4 million can launch your own conservative newspaper on a college campus, which can be mostly used to pay for security. $4 million can also pay for the legal fees of fighting the federal government.
