    A huge college entrance cheating scam to obtain entry into elite schools by the children of wealthy parents who could afford to pay hundreds of thousands in bribes to SAT and ACT officials and to college athletics coaches.Two celebrities who are caught up in the scandal are Lorrie Loughlin and Felicity Huffman who evidently paid huge amounts to get their children into elite schools.The scam was on going from at least 201 through 2018.Some of the children were admitted through faked athletic scholarships.All those admitted under this scam were cheating a truly deserving child out of their legitimate placement.Yet another example of how too much wealth in the hands of too few is destroying our country.At least $25 million was involved in this massive scam involving the parents of at least 33 parents of undeserving children.

    Arguendo that this is real, few would call 33 cases of bribery "huge."

    In light of dumbasses like David Hogg getting into Harvard on SJW street cred alone, any Complex complaints about a few "the rich" families defrauding the college admission process are a hoot. Especially when one of the named celebrities is a LW activist and the other is almost certainly LW too. Sure it's "the rich" and not corrupt LW celebrities we need to worry about?

    So that's about ~7 per year? YAWN.

    Affirmative action has discriminated against MILLIONS of whites and especially Asians seeking admission to prestigious colleges, and especially medical and law schools in the same time period.

    I think they came across it by accident while conducting another inquiry over a year ago.

    They don't care about the individuals they hurt. Or that, in so doing, they rob the nation and the world of the best that the brightest and most talented have to offer. Leaving us all to look forward to mediocrity in a world that rejects excellence. Such is the brilliance of true wickedness.

    Not just Hollywood, also financial executives and fashion designers caught buying their childrens entrance into colleges, even going so far as to fake athletic ability with photoshopped heads on real athletes bodies.

    It's a scandal of wealthy scumbags who are willing to even teach their children that cheating is OK.

    Right wingers with their new figure head Trump would be likely to support this type of action. After all, how did a guy with the vocabulary of a typical Queens 10th grade dropout get into an Ivy League school? I’m sure somebody cheated “bigly” to make that happen. No wonder he paid Cohen to threaten people to keep his school records secret.

    The guy that ran this scam had it set up so that the checks he received were made payable to a supposed charity, so that the parents getting their kids into college by cheating, were also getting to cheat on their taxes,

    One parent charged in this scam is a top lawyer at least 3 are CEO's of financial firms,I guess the agents highlighted Lori Loughlin and Huffman because they have easy name recognition.A total of 46 parents named and eight coaches and colleges.None of the colleges named atre chatged only their employees same is true of SAT and ACT .

    It would be nice if all those scumbag parents spent 20 to 30 years in jail but they'll set yet another bad example for their kids and use their money to get off.

    Nothing like telling your kid it's too stupid too get into college so mommy and daddy will cheat and steal to get you in...scumbags raising scumbags....

    If you bribe the school to admit your kid you are a criminal. If a corporation gives a school a grant for a "study" it always seems to come out in the favor of the corporation. It just goes to show, legality is simply a matter of how big the bribe is. The so called educational system is a sham.

    These parents are scum. They aren't high quality people.

    If I had asked my father to bribe a school to get me in, he would have kicked me out of the house.
