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
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.
