    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.

    William H. Macy may be starting to regret some of his past
    comments on giving his and Felicity Huffman's daughters a "leg
    up" in Hollywood, in light of the recent college admissions
    cheating scandal.

    Huffman was among 50 people charged in a college admissions
    cheating scam earlier this week for allegedly paying money to
    help get the couple's eldest daughter -- 18-year-old Sofia --
    into an elite college. She was arrested without incident on
    Tuesday, appeared in court a few hours later on charges of
    conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud
    and was released on a $250,000 bond.

    Back in 2004, Macy spoke to ET about the benefits of nepotism in
    Hollywood at a junket for his film Cellular. "One can help your
    children in this business, and the nepotism works, and I have no
    problems with it," he said of potentially helping his daughters
    to succeed in the business if they ended up choosing that career
    path. "If I can give them a leg up, I absolutely would. It's a
    great way to make a living. It really is."

    Huffman has deleted her social media accounts in the wake of the
    scandal, and is next due in court in Boston on March 29.
    However, fans of the couple's career have been quick to point
    out art imitating life -- including an SAT scam on Macy's Emmy-
    winning show, Shameless, and a Desperate Housewives storyline in
    which Huffman's character, Lynette, offered to pay a $15,000
    "donation" to get her twin sons into a prestigious private

    In the case of their real-life scandal, court documents claim
    that after Huffman made a charitable donation of $15,000 to Key
    Worldwide Foundation (KWF), Sofia was given extra time to take
    the SAT, and received a score of 1420, up approximately 400
    points after the proctor corrected her answers.

    In a February interview with Men’s Journal, Macy, 69, said that
    the best advice he’d ever received was to “never lie.”

    “It’s the cheapest way to go. Lies cost you a lot, and they’re
    never worth what they cost,” he explained.

    The actor also spoke out against lying when talking politics
    with ET at the Bobby premiere in 2006. "There's a kind of person
    who thinks it's alright to lie a little bit for a greater good,
    but people who lie a little bit for a greater good are called
    liars and that's the end of it," he explained.

    House star Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli have
    also been charged -- in the video below.
