Alan Dershowitz: College cheating scandal is big -- and it may get much worse

By Alan Dershowitz

Published March 12, 2019

The federal racketeering indictment filed Tuesday in a college admissions scandal in which wealthy parents allegedly paid bribes to get their children into elite universities is the most serious such scandal ever exposed – and may get worse.

Federal prosecutors in Boston charged 33 parents, more than a dozen college coaches, the founder of an admissions consulting company, two standardized test administrators and a test proctor in the alleged scam.

Prosecutors said William “Rick” Singer, the California man who heads the Edge College & Career Network college consulting firm, pleaded guilty to charges including racketeering, money laundering, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to defraud the United States.

I like the hypocrisy factor.
I will NOT comply.

Would be interesting if the Obamas are somehow also connected to this scandal.

Even if they were involved, it will be harder to prove.  You know they were not the ones writing checks.

This story suggests they probably used a couple fistfuls of Benjamins.  Never gonna get caught up in this.
