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 University of Southern California, Yale and several other
elite colleges are being sued by multiple college students who
claim they were denied a fair opportunity for admission and have
had their degrees devalued due to a college cheating scheme
detailed by federal officials Tuesday.
The initial plaintiffs, Standford University students Erica
Olson and Kalea Woods, filed a class-action lawsuit in the U.S.
District Court for the Northern District of California on
Wednesday, a day after federal authorities said they've
uncovered one of the largest college admissions scams ever seen
in the U.S. The lawsuit seeks $5 million on behalf of what the
lawyers estimate will be thousands of plaintiffs who fit the
criteria to seek class status.
As of Thursday afternoon, Olsen was no longer involved in the
lawsuit and a revised version of the complaint had removed her
name. Woods remained in the suit, however, along with three new
plaintiffs. The new students hailed from Rutgers, Tulane and an
unnamed community college.
The University of San Diego, the University of Texas at Austin,
Wake Forest, Georgetown, Stanford, Yale and USC -- along with
William “Rick” Singer, who was called the ringleader of the
admissions scheme -- were also named as defendants.
The students claim they weren’t given a fair opportunity to be
accepted into the elite colleges where they'd applied because
some people were allegedly admitted based on fake athletic
profiles and distorted SAT and ACT scores obtained through
"The students who filed the complaint didn’t receive what they
paid for — to participate in an application process free of
fraud," a statement from Zimmerman Reed LLP said. "According to
the complaint, these schools represented that their admission
process would be based on the applicants’ merits, considering
their character and performance. Instead, the students allege
that what they got was a process tainted by bribes and school
officials who failed to assure an honest application process."
"It’s a straightforward claim and a simple remedy. The students
want their money back," the statement continued. "They request
that anyone who paid an application fee to any of the eight
named universities but was denied admission gets their
application fee returned."
Singer would obtain college acceptance letters for his clients'
children by either helping them cheat on entrance exams or
pretend they were being recruited as an athlete in a school
sport, authorities said. The 58-year-old, who ran the for-profit
college prep business Edge College & Career Network (also known
as "The Key") and the charity Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF),
allegedly pitched it to parents as the "side door" method to
getting into colleges.
“Each of the universities were negligent in failing to maintain
adequate protocols and security measures in place to guarantee
the sanctity of the college admissions process, and to ensure
that their own employees were not engaged in these type of
bribery schemes,” the complaint stated.
The suit added, "Unqualified students found their way into the
admissions rolls of highly selective universities, while those
students who played by the rules and did not have college-
bribing parents were denied admission."
A former California teacher filed a $500 billion civil lawsuit
Wednesday against 45 defendants involved in the college
admissions scandal, Reuters reported. Jennifer Kay Toy said
wealthy parents who believed it was "OK to lie, cheat, steal and
bribe their children's way into a good college" robbed her son,
Joshua, of the chance to be admitted to colleges despite his 4.2
She didn’t specify which colleges her son had sought to attend,
nor did it specify his ultimate selection, but said those
involved in the bribery scheme took away people’s “rights to a
fair chance at entrance to college,” Reuters reported.
Singer pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering and money
laundering on Tuesday. A total of 50 people, including actresses
Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, were charged over alleged
involvement in the scheme.
