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.

TV actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among dozens
of people charged with paying bribes to get their kids into top
universities in a widespread college admissions scam,
prosecutors announced on Tuesday.
More than 40 people have been indicted in the scheme that
allegedly involved students gaining entrance to schools
including Georgetown, Stanford, Wake Forest University, UCLA and
Yale as recruited athletes — regardless of their athletic
ability — or on inflated college entrance exam test scores.
Some deep-pocketed parents paid as much as $6.5 million — while
most plunked down between $250,000 and $400,000.
“There can be no separate college admission system for the
wealthy and there will not be a separate criminal justice system
either,” said Massachusetts US Attorney Andrew Lelling at a
press conference. “We’re not talking about donating a building
so a school is more likely to take your son or daughter, we’re
talking about deception or fraud, fake test scores … bribed
Federal prosecutors in Boston say parents paid an admissions
consultant, William Rick Singer, $25 million from 2011 through
February 2019 to bribe the coaches and administrators in order
to help their kids get accepted.
The California college-prep expert is also accused of steering
some of that money to SAT and ACT administrators, who would then
either take the test for the student or change their answers to
the correct ones after the fact.
Bogus athletic profiles were made to look as though the students
were qualified athletes in order to boost the kids’ chances of
getting in — when they actually weren’t involved in sports.
“Some simply never showed up for the athletics, some showed up
with an injury and I think some played briefly and then quit,”
In all, 33 parents have been charged though Lelling hinted that
more arrests could be coming.
“There are more than that, but I’m not prepared to give you a
total,” he said at a press conference.
No students have been charged and it appears the majority of
them had no idea about their parents’ alleged shady involvement.
None of the schools were involved in Singer’s alleged scam.
Huffman, who starred in the ABC hit series “Desperate
Housewives,” and Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on the sitcom
“Full House,” are facing charges of conspiracy to commit mail
fraud and honest services mail fraud.
In Huffman’s case, she and her husband allegedly made a
“purported charitable contribution” of $15,000 in order to
weasel her elder daughter into school, according to court papers
cited by ABC.
She allegedly later made similar arrangements for her younger
daughter — but then backed out.
Huffman has been married to fellow actor William H. Macy, who’s
earned Emmy nominations for his role on “Shameless.”
The feds say they have recorded telephone calls with Huffman and
a cooperating witness.
Loughlin, meanwhile, and her husband “agreed to pay bribes
totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters
designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact
that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating
their admission to USC,” court documents said.
Authorities say they have emails from Loughlin to prove their

FBI Special Agent in Charge Joseph Bonavolonta said charges are
the result of a 10-month investigation dubbed “Operation Varsity
Blues.” He said 38 people have been taken into custody, seven
are working toward surrender and one is being actively pursued.
Four people — including Singer — are expected to plead guilty.
“We believe everyone charged here today had a role in
cultivating a culture of corruption and greed,” Bonavolonta
said. “Their actions were without a doubt insidious, selfish and
