So... as Lori Loughlin was surrendering to authorities, where was the daughter she's accused of bribing USC to accept into the school?

Why, on the yacht of USC Board Of Trustees Chairman, Rick Caruso.

You can't make this **** up.

I doubt that

Elizabeth Warren has no sympathy for people who cheated to get their kids into college. Specifically, she said she has “zero” sympathy. For those of you keeping track at home, that’s less than 1/1064 of 1 percent.

So just to clarify, I'm supposed to be outraged (and surprised) that 48 rich kids got admitted to schools because of something other than their own merits? Oh my. Say it ain't so.

Undergrad enrollment of the schools listed = 103,472

Yea... the admission of .04% of that is definitely worth the outrage and year long taxpayer funded investigation.

Is this really something that surprises and upsets people? Holy ****.

Well, that's different, what with her 1/1024th minority designation and all.

There was some serious money involved in this scenario, both being paid and collected, and now the NCAA is involved. What a mess:





Update 3:35 p.m. EDT March 12: William “Rick” Singer, the California businessman who founded the admissions consulting company at the center of the alleged college entrance bribery scheme, pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges including racketeering conspiracy and obstruction of justice.

Authorities said Singer schemed with parents, coaches and others to pay students' way into schools like Yale, Georgetown and Stanford University.

Prosecutors say parents paid Singer about $25 million to bribe coaches and administrators into pretending that their children were athletic recruits to guarantee their admission.


.....

Update 2:25 p.m. EDT March 12: The NCAA is investigating after authorities announced charges Tuesday against 50 people accused of taking part in a college admissions bribery scheme.

The group said in a statement Tuesday that the charges made public Tuesday “are troubling and should be a concern for all of higher education.”

“We are looking into these allegations to determine the extent to which NCAA rules may have been violated,” the statement said.

Knew this was coming.....



USC, Yale University among colleges sued by Stanford students amid college admissions scandal




The University of Southern California, Yale University and several other elite colleges are being sued by two Stanford University students who claim they were denied a fair opportunity for admission and have had their degrees devalued due to the college cheating scheme revealed by federal officials Tuesday.


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 uncovered one of the largest college admissions scams to hit the U.S. The lawsuit seeks $5,000,001 on behalf of what the lawyers estimate will be thousands of plaintiffs who fit the criteria to seek class status

I am not sure it's the same daughter, but the one with the video saying she is only in college for the gang bang parties and could care less about school, needs to be GONE.

Loughlin has been dumped by Hallmark, and Fuller House, daughter Olivia Jade has been dumped by cosmetics company Sephora, clothing brand Pretty Polly, and hair products company Tresemme...

Both daughters are apparently leaving USC, due to "bullying"...

If you're playing a game, then cheating is bad sportsmanship.

There's no such thing as bad sportsmanship in war.

The GOP don't realize we're at war. Trump obviously does. That's why I'm with Trump.
