    Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren told MSNBC
    that she has "zero" sympathy for the dozens of parents charged in
    what the Justice Department says is the biggest college admissions
    scandal it's ever prosecuted.

    A number of wealthy parents were charged Tuesday in a $25 million
    scam that helped their children gain admission to top schools in the
    U.S., according to the DOJ. The list of those charged included
    high-level executives and two notable actresses.

    Parents involved in the scam allegedly funneled cash into a
    "charitable account." The man who pleaded guilty to four charges in
    the scam, William Singer, helped the alter students' SAT and ACT
    tests and helped parents bribe athletic coaches and universities to
    take their kids, even if they didn't play sports, prosecutors said.

    Yale University, Georgetown University, Stanford University, the
    University of Southern California and Wake Forest University were
    among the institutions that accepted children whose parents are
    accused in the scam.

    The business executives charged by officials include Douglas Hodge,
    a former CEO of Pimco; William McGlashan Jr., a senior executive at
    TPG Capital; Agustin Huneeus, head of the Huneeus vineyard in Napa
    Valley, California; and Gordon Caplan, co-chairman of international
    law firm Willkie Farr. Actresses Felicity Huffman of ABC's
    "Desperate Housewives" and Lori Loughlin of ABC's "Full House" were
    also charged.

    The Justice Department said that it believes most of the children
    were unaware of the bribery. Prosecutors have not charged any of the universities or students.

    Warren's office did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for
    comment.

    [Pretty funny, coming from someone who lied her way into college!]
