    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.

    A leading New York lawyer was “placed on a leave of absence”
    over his arrest in the college-admissions cheating scandal, his
    firm said Wednesday.

    In a statement, the white-shoe firm of Willkie Farr & Gallagher
    cited the “widely reported” charges against co-chairman Gordon
    Caplan, 52.

    “In light of the seriousness of the matter, Mr. Caplan has been
    placed on a leave of absence from the Firm and will have no
    further Firm management responsibilities,” the statement said.

    The public relations company that released the statement
    wouldn’t say if Caplan, who graduated from Cornell University
    and Fordham Law School, would continue to be paid while on leave.

    The Greenwich, Conn., resident is accused of paying $75,000 to
    illegally boost his daughter’s score on an ACT exam she took on
    December 8, 2018.

    Court papers say Caplan was repeatedly caught on wiretaps
    plotting with William “Rick” Singer, who has admitted
    masterminding the scam in which an accomplice allegedly
    corrected wrong answers after the girl turned in her test.

    During one conversation, Caplan allegedly said that paying for
    the crooked service was “not an issue.”

    “It’s just, to be honest, I’m not worried about the moral issue
    here. I’m worried about the, if she’s caught doing that, you
    know, she’s finished,” he said, according to court papers.

    Caplan also allegedly told Singer: “I mean, this comes out— I— I
    don’t even want to know what you guys do.”

    Caplan and his lawyer declined to comment following a Tuesday
    hearing in Manhattan federal court, where he was released on
    $500,000 bond pending a March 29 court appearance in Boston.
