"Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among 50 people charged in a $25 million college entrance exam cheating scheme, according to court documents unsealed in Boston on Tuesday.

The alleged scam focused on getting students admitted to elite universities as recruited athletes, regardless of their athletic abilities, and helping potential students cheat on their college exams, according to the indictment."

Dr Dre donated 70 million to USC and his daughter just got in

Meanwhile we call it "lobbying" in the federal government, except it affects millions of people on a grand scale, and not just a 1 kid.

What a dumbass calling the professors the deans.

I don’t see the big deal—can’t the girls now simply “identify” as people who did nothing wrong and ignore any actual facts?

Cenk.. I love how you have this “them and you” attitude about rich people. As if people are oblivious to the fact that your a rich people lmao.

Dumb poor Republicans just keep telling thier kids to just go be welders. Idiots. The rich kids have "jobs" in Fiji.

Lori Loughlin and her husband’s net worth combined is $88 million dollars. That’s why they were able to give $500 thousand dollars to get their daughters into to USC. When the Atlanta Public School scandal occurred several years back, some of those teachers went to jail. I think whoever is involved in this scandal should go to jail as well. I wish they would take away the legacy status. The wealthy people already have a leg up on education. It’s awful!

Dude is such a arrogant dude. He could be so better if he just stick to the material. So annoying!

So sad. Their children are already very privileged and want to commit fraud to get their already super privileged kids into elite universities! Wow. Just wow. But not surprised.
BlackManTravel
This has been going on for the past 100 year why is anybody surprised

We should make it illegal in US to get into any public or private school on a legacy basis.

So what? If I was rich I would do the exact same thing. People are haters because they don't have to money to do the same.

We can complain or take action. Contact Netflix & Hulu. Let them know if Loughlin & Huffman are not fired from their shows and the providers continue to air them that we will cancel our Subscriptions. The only way to fight this kind of corruption is to hit them in the bank account. I just informed Netflix that if Loughlin isn't fired from Fuller House and Netflix continues to carry the show then I will cancel my Monthly Subscription. I refuse to let my daughter watch "Family Programming" that enriches a dishonest celebrity criminal who is actively hurting honest children and families attempting to earn their admission to college fairly and honestly.

Are they going after the collages who received all these bribes?
Moormores
With all these resources how can your child not be prepared to get into school by their own merits... It is interesting the thing so-called rich people find important.
acgillespie
*Rumor has it they all were Obama and Hillary supporters too.. Imagine that*

To be fair, if I had the money, I would have bought 666 whatever Avenue too. But I am a metalhead.
Fullmoon Phantom1412
That's what pisses me off about this whole news story. It's not that they used bribery and cheated. I knew there were rich people that did this. I've seen it. Not on this level sure, but I've seen it in person. It's apparent in politics. I'm not surprised about that and it's not the most infuriating part of the news story. It's the fact that the system is RIGGED for them and STILL they have to cheat to get into college? Seriously? Especially the SAT / ACT. Just why? How can you have so many advantages and still have to do this. At least demonstrate you didn't just get where you are because of your family / ancestors.
