    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.

    The son of Beverly Hills marketing CEO Jane Buckingham, whose
    mom allegedly took part in the nationwide college cheating
    scandal, apologized, saying he’s upset he was “unknowingly
    involved” in the scheme.

    Jack Buckingham said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter
    that he hopes the scandal — in which his mom allegedly conspired
    to cheat on his ACT exam so he would get into the University of
    Southern California — will change the college admissions process
    for the better.

    “I know there are millions of kids out there both wealthy and
    less fortunate who grind their ass off just to have a shot at
    the college of their dreams,” he told the publication. “I am
    upset that I was unknowingly involved in a large scheme that
    helps give kids who may not work as hard as others an advantage
    over those who truly deserve those spots.”

    “For that, I am sorry, though I know my word does not mean much
    to many people at the moment,” he continued. “While the
    situation I am going through is not a pleasant one, I take
    comfort in the fact that this might help finally cut down on
    money and wealth being such a heavy factor in college admissions.

    “Instead, I hope colleges may prioritize an applicants’
    character, intellect, and other qualities over everything else.”

    Jack’s mom, parenting book author Jane Buckingham, was charged
    Tuesday along with 33 other parents in the massive college
    cheating scandal.

    She’s accused of paying $50,000 for an ACT proctor to take the
    exam in Jack’s place in July 2018.

    “I know this is craziness, I know it is,” she wrote to William
    “Rick” Singer, according to the documents. “I need you to get
    him into USC, and then I need you to cure cancer and [make
    peace] in the Middle East.”

    The scheme involved sending a handwriting sample from her son to
    plot mastermind Singer for the proctor to imitate.

    “He has not great writing,” Jane said, according to the court
    papers. “Good luck with this.”

    It’s not clear if Jack ended up going to USC — though he did get
    a near-perfect score of 35 on the test, according to the

    Jane, the founder of trend forecasting firm Trendera, seemed
    happy with the results, and said she would probably do the same
    for her daughter Lilia, because she is “not a great test taker,”
    the documents state.
