Watching a great feature on Fox that has the prosecutors involved in this scandal. Looks like there is a feel good for the libs here because of the focus on the privileged rich that they're always howling about. This is a very elaborate and extremely extensive system of cheating. As silly as it might sound the Sailing team coach at Stanford is named as a recipient of bribes. This is just a small indicator of how deep it has gone including photo shopping sports pix and hiring others to tale the admissions tests for kids. Go get em Justice!
Why would the "deep state" so derided by Trumpanzees be capable of such an investigation?

President Obama was very evidently and markedly intelligent, and any boss-class that refused him education would be asking for serious trouble. As to the crooks buying the best for their children, you should have met some of the thickoes at Cambridge! One way or another they'll see their young right, until 'biological reversion to the mean' buggers them up entirely.

Am I the only one who doesn't really care about this story?

Headline: Rich people are spending money to get unqualified kids in elite colleges.
In other news: American's put their pants on one leg at a god damn time.

This is nothing new. Same scheme just on a bigger scale.

Legacy entitlement has been in the higher education system in private schools since they opened. In fact that's why they were opened to begin with. Leland Stanford created Stanford univ so his son could attend a school without leaving San Francisco. I knew several USC alumni who were rabid about getting their Frats fattened with money soaked kids. Contrary to pop belief they recruited for Frat members in HS and tutored and groomed them to get in USC.
The schools in the public sector involved is a real issue. There's gonna be a few ADs and even possibly Deans and Dept heads rolling.

Seriously? You think Obama's mother bribed Harvard?

Think about how Trump, who doesn't want anyone to see his grades, got into Wharton, he had a very rich daddy who bought him a draft deferment, why stop there?
Trump was legacy, like all the other lukewarm Harvard and Yalies whose Daddys went there and have endowed a chair or built a wall. Obama, and I'm betting Clinton (Wild Willy) were party projects who panned out. Clinton didn't live up to expectations because he had a "past" . Obama was perfect, identified early on and herded thru the pitfalls without leaving a trace of evidence of his passing. He emerged claiming laurels with no proof and placed into office in a Dem safe state ala Hillary then before he could establish a record in congress put him up as the saviour o the party. It worked.
