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.

Felicity Huffman, an actress ensnared in an alleged college
admissions cheating scandal, reportedly was greeted by armed FBI
agents Tuesday morning at her Los Angeles home.
Huffman, best known for her role in ABC’s “Desperate
Housewives,” was implicated in the massive college admissions
cheating scandal along with other wealthy and famous parents who
allegedly paid millions to have their children placed in elite
A source told the Los Angeles Times that Huffman and other
defendants had recently received notice that they might face
arrest. Sources familiar with Huffman’s arrest told the paper
that FBI agents with guns drawn showed up at the actress’ home
at 6 a.m. to take her into custody.
The FBI did not confirm to Fox News that agents' guns were
drawn. “The size of the arrest team that executed the warrant at
defendant Huffman's location is consistent with the size of the
teams that executed warrants at all of the arrest locations
today (13 locations) and is the average size of an arrest team
at any planned arrest warrant. No tactical teams were used but
all FBI agents are armed and, depending on the circumstances,
may draw their weapons as a precautionary measure during the
execution of any warrant. This is done for the safety of the
agents, subject/s and any other occupants at a given location,”
Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman, told Fox News.
Huffman made a brief court appearance later Tuesday afternoon
where the judge asked her: “I’m not asking you to admit or deny
the charges against you but do you understand what the
government claims you did?” She replied: “Yes.”
Her husband, actor William H. Macy, sat in court as the judge
ordered her released on a $250,000 bond. Huffman is scheduled to
appear in court March 29 in Boston.
Huffman, 54, allegedly paid $15,000, disguised as a charitable
donation, so her daughter could take part in the college
entrance-exam cheating scam, according to court documents.
Court papers said a cooperating witness met with Huffman and
Macy at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he
"controlled" an SAT testing center and could have somebody
correct her daughter's wrong answers. The person told
investigators the couple agreed to the plan.
Their daughter, Sofia, an aspiring actress who attends Los
Angeles High School of the Arts, allegedly took the test in
December 2017 and got a score of 1420, a 400-point improvement
from her first test, the LA Times reported.
Huffman and several other defendants were charged with
conspiracy to commit fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in
prison. Macy was not charged; authorities did not say why.
David Mamet, Oscar-nominated writer of “Wag the Dog” and “The
Verdict,” came to their defense in the form of an open letter,
citing the double standards that exist in the admissions process
and calling many of its policies a “corrupt joke,” Deadline
“The unqualified may be accepted for many reasons, among them,
as Legacies, and on account of large donations made by their
parents,” Mamet wrote. “I do not see the difference between
getting a kid into school by bribing the Building Committee, and
by bribing someone else. But, apparently, the second is against
the Law. So be it.”
The 50 parents ensnared in the massive cheating scandal
allegedly funneled money to William Rick Singer, the California
man pinpointed as the scheme’s “ringleader.” The money was
allegedly used to bribe athletic coaches or for help cheating on
entrance exams so their children could be admitted into
prestigious schools, including Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, and
University of Southern California.
No students have been charged, with authorities saying that in
many cases the teenagers were unaware of their parents’ plans.
Several of the colleges involved made no mention of taking
action against the students.
Another big celebrity name on the list was actress Laurie
Loughlin, known for playing Aunt Becky on the family sitcom
“Full House.” Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo
Giannulli, both face charges for allegedly giving $500,000 to
have their two daughters’ athletic records falsified.
Giannulli was released on a $1 million dollar bond and had his
travel restricted to the continental United States. Loughlin was
expected to surrender Wednesday, according to a report.
