Looks like he was arrested for fraud in some sort of funding scheme for the wall.

Interesting.

The charges were filed by the U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss from the Southern District of New York.

She is a registered democrat.

It’s kind of odd that the Bannon’s arrest was made five days before the RNC convention!

Edit - If charges are true then lock them up

That’s what happens when you donate to a crowdsourced campaign for something Mexico was gonna pay for anyway, I guess...
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

The story goes that Bannon and his friends have already built a half mile of wall.
But the migrants just walk around it.
Serious doubts that this is a Democratic party political play at an opportune time!

Will Steve flip?
In any war, there are two tremendous tasks. That of the combat troops is to fight the enemy. That of the supply troops is to furnish all the material to insure victory. The faster and farther the combat troops advance against the foe, the greater becomes the battle of supply. EISENHOWER

Seems that Steve's pardon isn't in the mail, so he might have to flip. And then this on the lighter side:

NBC News confirms: Steve Bannon was arrested by agents of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, which is the criminal investigating arm of the Postal Service. @MSNBC

Here is the actual indictment against Bannon and his colleges:

So they collected $25 million and converted over $1 million for their own use. That's a lot smaller percentage than most charities allocate to "administration".

Sure, the DA is a democrat.  Does it make the charges less valid? 

Also, "innocent until proven guilty" and all of that.
