    Liberal Democrats, too lazy and stupid to compete
    scholastically. This is the result of the present day inferior
    California school system, once the envy of the entire free
    world, after 40 years of Democrat control and parasitic
    socialist union infestation.

    They’re not so smug now.

    The daughter of a CEO whose parents allegedly paid big bribes to
    get her into Georgetown University “gloated” about being fed the
    answers to her SATs, according to prosecutors.

    Isabelle Henriquez’s parents — Manuel, the founder and CEO of
    Hercules Capital, and Elizabeth — were among dozens of well-
    heeled moms and dads charged with bribing their kids’ way into
    top colleges in the massive admissions scam that on Tuesday
    rocked the nation.

    The California couple allegedly paid the scheme’s mastermind,
    William “Rick” Singer, more than $400,000 to get Isabelle into
    the prestigious school where she is now a junior — as well as
    helping her younger sister cheat on her own college-entrance

    Singer allegedly talked Isabelle’s private college-prepar­atory
    school into allowing one of his crooked proctors to fly in to
    oversee the test.

    Then “unbeknownst to the school, he sat side-by-side with the
    daughter during the exam and provided her with answers to the
    exam questions,” court documents allege.

    Afterward, “he ‘gloated’ with Elizabeth Henriquez and her
    daughter about the fact that they had cheated and gotten away
    with it,” the criminal complaint reads.

    Isabelle received a score of 1900 out of a possible 2400 on the
    exam — “an improvement of 320 points” over her own best score.

    But to grease the wheels of her admission even further, the
    Henriquezes then allegedly worked with Singer to bribe
    Georgetown’s then-head tennis coach, Gordon Ernst, to have her
    designated as a recruited athlete.

    Singer fabricated an essay and application for Isabelle that
    falsely claimed she played “club tennis” through high school,
    held a “top 50 ranking” in junior girls tennis for the United
    States Tennis Association and was on the USTA all-academic team
    for her junior and senior years, prosecutors allege.

    “At her best, she appears to have ranked 207th in Northern
    California in the under-12 girls division, with an overall
    win/loss record of 2-8,” they write in the complaint.

    Less than two weeks later, she received a letter from the
    university saying it had reviewed her application at the request
    of tennis coach and that her admission was “likely” — and she
    was ultimately accepted.

    Many of the students caught up in the bribery scandal were
    purportedly in the dark about what their parents were up to —
    but the criminal complaint ­alleges Isabelle was a willing

    Since arriving at Georgetown, she has declared her major in
    Spanish, scored a gig as the promotions officer for the school’s
    student-spirit organization and is president of a group that
    tutors kids at a local middle school, according to her LinkedIn

    She says she interned for her father’s firm in 2018, is
    currently an investment-banking intern at Compass Point Research
    & Trading — and is slated to be a summer wealth-management
    analyst at Big Apple financial-services company Jefferies.

    In a now-deleted post on a blog for a sociology class, she wrote
    that she is “very self-motivated” and has a “a good moral
    compass” when choosing friends.

    Isabelle’s Georgetown acceptance was apparently such a success
    that her parents also allegedly paid to have Singer’s proctor
    repeat the cheating stunt for their younger daughter on both the
    ACT and SAT exams.

    The dad on Wednesday “voluntarily stepped aside” as chairman and
    CEO of Hercules Capital after the company’s shares plummeted by
    as much as 10 percent when the scandal broke.

    He and his wife turned themselves in Tuesday and were each
    released on $500,000 bond.

    Both looked stunned as they appeared in court, with Manuel
    shaking his head and looking at the ground as the judge
    explained the charges against them, according to Bloomberg.

    Georgetown said it wouldn’t comment on individual students, but
    said in a statement it is “reviewing the details of the
    indictment and will be taking appropriate action.”

    Isabelle did not return a ­request for comment.
