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.”
