    Yeah, we shouldn't forget them either. Could you imagine if you or your kid was on the waiting list but didn't make it in?

    No kidding.

    I believe that very fact is a critical part of the indictment.

    “For every student admitted through fraud, an honest genuinely talented student was rejected"

    A legal concept known as "Honest Services Mail Fraud"

    Honest services fraud is a crime defined in 18 U.S.C. § 1346 (the federal mail and wire fraud statute), added by the United States Congress in 1988, which states: "For the purposes of this chapter, the term scheme or artifice to defraud includes a scheme or artifice to deprive another of the intangible right of honest services."

    The qualified students denied admission would fall under the protection of that statute.

    Expulsions should happen. They didn't earn their places in those schools. But, all of those schools are guilty of a far bigger and more systemic scandal in their admissions discrimination against: Asians, Whites, Local Resident Students are all discriminated against in massive amounts making this event tiny in comparison.

    Where are the Leftists calling for those non-merit based admission practices to be ceased? Where is that investigation? SILENCE LEFTISTS... you have no room to get all upset here, unless you are ready to embrace a real merit based admission standard.

    Who is McGlashan you might ask?

    Bill McGlashan, the founder and managing partner of TPG Growth which is majority owner of CAA and helped launch STX Entertainment among other Hollywood entities, has been put on administrative leave by parent company TPG after he was among 46 people indicted Tuesday for their part in a nationwide college bribery scam.

    McGlashan made Vanity Fair‘s 2017 list of the 100 most influential people in business, politics and technology as CEO of The Rise Fund, a $2 billion impact-investment platform co-founded with U2’s Bono, Richard Branson and Jeff Skoll among others. With Robert Simonds he also helped co-found STX Entertainment.

    In 2014, TPG paid $225 million in equity for a majority stake in the Hollywood agency.

    Apparently these bimbo's bimbo daughters ironically have no interest in school anyway. They're all obsessed with being internet celebrities. So now they're well on their way being that they certainly couldn't have an ounce of shame in all of this. They're next achievement will no doubt be sex tapes with lowlife black rappers.

    Based on the amount of money some of the dummies paid to get their imbeciles into top universities the kids must be real idiots. They could have spent less money on top-tier tutors and gotten better results, but that would mean that the rug rats would have actually had to have done some studying. I'll bet that lying trump's daddy had to put out about $10million to get his orange baby into college.

    I love bipartisanship. If I knew that Warren could, and would break up big tech, and the banks, I would vote for the woman, even if I couldn’t stand the rest of her politics.

    But, it’s not that easy. She would need congress, and we know that’s never going to happen.

    Lock her up, this ONE black female stopped 5000 white kids from completing applications. I bet you really hate all the black athletes who get paid visits to all of these colleges and then get their education paid for.

    Well, she would need a conscience.

    And to be someone other than a member/instrument of the criminal oligarchy spewing token oppostion to same.

    In other words, if Hitler were Betty Grable, s/he'd have AWESOME legs.

    Let this be a teachable moment (no pun intended) that "white privilege" and the poo-pourri of race baiting of the left / msm is a fallacy at best, and a diversion from what has become readily apparent with these indictments ....

    Oh, let there be no doubt that certain societal privileges exist, but those privileges are those granted to money & education, and these parents "get it." Do you?
