After the sentencing on Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016, of Babulal Bera, father of Rep. Ami Bera, for making illegal financial contributions to his son's political campaign, former Congressman Doug Ose slammed the sentence as being too lenient. Ose, who lost to Ami Bera in the 2014 race for the 7th Congressional District seat, also said outside the federal courthouse where the sentence was handed down that he believes the the younger Bera was aware of his father's illegal activities, something Congressman Bera has denied.
