Democratic Donors Charged in College Admissions Scam

Several Democratic donors were among those charged Tuesday in a federal crackdown on a nationwide fraudulent college admissions conspiracy.

"Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits," according to the Department of Justice. Documents unsealed Tuesday in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts show fraud extending to Yale, Georgetown, and other American universities.

.....Of the 50 people charged in the college scandal, the Washington Free Beacon found only one gave consistently to Republican candidates. Mossimo G. Giannulli, founder of the clothing company Mossimo, Inc., is married to actress Lori Loughlin. He and his wife gave over $500,000 to secure admission to USC for his two daughters via the crew team. Neither daughter rows. He supported Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) in 2016, and Romney and John Boehner before that. He has also donated to Democrats.

"Of the fifty people charged, only one gave to Republican candidates....."

Okay, get ready for it. The Demos and primitives and the lorgnette-and-pearls crowd here, are going to say, "Well, they all do it," as if Republicans are just as corrupt as Demos.

1. "Neither daughter rows"

They couldn't take it up for a semester or two just to make it a little less suspicious?

2. I've already heard at least one person on You Tube making fun of the weight people are putting to it

It reminds me of Tom Cruise at the end of "The Firm" when he's telling Ed Harris "yeah, well, it might not be sexy but it's got TEETH, you got mail fraud, racketeering..."

I gaurantee there's gonna be some "flippers", they'll be working their way up this food chain fairly quickly I bet and before we know it we'll find it went all the way to the white house (hopefully).

The democrats can have congress all they want, they can play romper room and pass bills acknowledging the rights of crustaceans, make a lobster bill of rights and stop the holocaust of crabs and mussells in New England (would YOU like to have your legs cut off and have your body thrown away like a frisbee to land on top of your crab ex wife so she can nag you until you expire?).

They can pass all the bills they want and they wont get through the senate and/or get signed, meanwhile the department of justice is awake and functioning under a republican administration, and so hopefully this is just a nose under the tent, hopefully by next year there wont be a democrat available to run for president with them all serving time for various shady deals and deviancies that have up until now been treated with favoritism and free passes.

3. i don't get it

education, from stanford or community college, is worth exactly what the student puts into it.

these kids have demonstrated no great educational ability, why waste the money to buy them something that does not interest them.

6. There is this misguided belief that the very name on a diploma alone opens doors.

That actual achievement accounts for less than where you went.

10. my diploma from auburn was enough to get me into any door i wanteo

but then i had to deliver the goods.

perhaps if i'd gone to mit or cal tech i might have had a higher class of classmates and a network of aquaintances with more and better doors. who knows?

a good state land grant university can be a great education, or a fun drunken party, it is what you make of it.

12. In our business experience

Our clients are more interested, at least in entry level positions, at a candidate's transcript and course load than the name of the school. In higher level positions, of course, then past experience and achievements are the most relevant factors. Perhaps this is more prevalent in technical fields?

15. A degree from Auburn is hard to get...It's a hard school.

A degree from AU is worth more than a degree from UA...In my opinion....



Congratulations on doing that.

19. More than that, lifetime alliances are formed in college.

This is particularly true if you can get into the right frat at an elite college. Then you're a member of a good ol' boys club, which is handy when you're looking for a job.

4. This is all about rich folks being able to say their kid's at Stanford

at cocktail parties. Heaven forbid they admit their kid wasn't accepted to a prestigious school.

8. true, but these are the same people that rail against Trump for his sins..

They are no different than him, in my opinion..money buys a lot of stuff and both sides do it.

What makes me sad though, is that some of these people paid to have their kid diagnosed with a learning disability so that they could get accommodations...That makes it hard for my kid, who has a real disability, when he goes to college and needs services.

9. This is widespread and it's about more than admissions.

It's about grades too. The right people slide through with the easy A. Ordinary people slave to pass. It's been going on for decades and it's rotten to the core. For every one who cheats their way through, a deserving kid is rejected.
