    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.

    In what the Justice Department called its largest ever college
    admissions prosecution, federal authorities charged 50 people on
    Tuesday with taking part in a nationwide scheme to game the
    admissions process at highly competitive schools like Yale and
    the University of Southern California.

    Those charged include wealthy and powerful parents accused of
    paying millions of dollars in bribes, exam administrators and
    athletic coaches accused of manufacturing students’
    achievements, and private admissions counselors accused of
    coordinating it all.

    The Enterprise

    At the center of the scandal are the Edge College & Career
    Network, also known as the Key, and a nonprofit organization,
    the Key Worldwide Foundation, that prosecutors say effectively
    were a single enterprise. They are accused of helping students
    cheat on standardized tests, and paying bribes to athletic
    coaches who could get the students into college using fake
    athletic credentials.
