  1. Ravi Singh is an American entrepreneur and author. He was the first U.S. cadet to graduate from a military academy with a turban. He worked as a legislative assistant to Illinois Lt Governor Bob Kustra. He also worked with Illinois State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka. He served as liaison to the Asian Pacific American community. Ravi Singh has always had the heart to serve the community from when he was a young man.
  2. He served his roles diligently, and he got recognition for a job well done. Community leaders, colleagues, religious leaders, friends, and neighbors speak very highly of him. Ravi Singh has not only been serving his family, he has been using his personal time to help people, even teaching young children. In the 2010s, after working with countless people from board members to world leaders with his technology, ElectionMall.com, Ravi Singh was profiled in Business Week Magazine and USA Today as the “Campaign Guru.”
  3. The Justice Department charged Ravi Singh with illegally helping a foreigner influence the election process in San Diego during the 2012 and 2013 election cycles, and he was arrested January 17, 2014, and released on bail four days later. Since then, he has been battling the charges and trying to improve his personal and educational status. He completed a Master’s Degree in Political Science, a Ph.D. in social media and technology from Ashford University in 2019. He is also now married to Elena Singh.
  4. On May 16, 2019, the Ninth Circuit panel reversed Ravi Singh’s convictions on count 37 for falsification of campaign records, vacated the sentences, and remanded for resentencing. The Ninth Circuit conclusion was that the evidence provided was insufficient to prove that Singh willfully caused the Filner campaign to file false records.
  5. Just yesterday, November 9, 2020, Ravi Singh was resentenced in federal court to one year in prison for conspiring with Mexican billionaire Susumo Azano to make almost $600,000 in illegal political contributions to candidates Bonnie Dumanis and Bob Filner in the 2012 San Diego mayoral campaign in an effort to buy “a friend in the Mayor’s office.” Singh was ordered to report to prison on January 11, 2021.
  6. Ravi Singh’s sentence for conspiring with Azano and others to inject hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and in-kind consulting services to the Dumanis and Filner campaigns seems vague. There was no actual evidence presented. There is nothing tangible against Ravi Singh, showing that he was a part of a conspiracy. The term conspiracy itself has a negative connotation, inferring that the appeal to a conspiracy is based on prejudice or insufficient evidence. When Ravi Singh appealed at the Ninth Circuit, the claim that he falsified campaign documents records, it was concluded that the federal government lacked evidence to prove that he actually did that.
  7. Evidence ought to show beyond a reasonable doubt that Ravi Singh acted with the knowledge and intention of helping Azano commit the crime of making donations and contributions. This was not the case, and it raises a couple of questions. The resentencing was based on assumptions and not facts. He was sentenced under conspiracy charges which have no proof. So, not really guilty.
  8. Was Ravi Singh sentenced for a crime that was not committed?
  9. Yesterday’s sentencing is based on a conspiracy, not facts. Could there be a hidden agenda behind the case, and there are fears that if Ravi Singh continues to live as a free man, he can uncover some truth about the case that proves his innocence and other people were involved? Is there someone who fears that this truth could come out?
