College Admissions Bribery Scandal
I waited a few days before adding my two cents’ worth, but this latest distraction from the United States has become a witch hunt of a different sort.
So far 50 people have been indicted in the scandal and the fallout continues to grow because the parent of a very competent applicant is now suing the colleges (and everyone else) because they were rejected. Now they know why: some parents did whatever it took to get their children admitted to those colleges.
They paid money to this man to make it happen. (He looks a little ‘shifty’ to me.)
How He Did It
This picture tells the tale. Disguising the bribe as a charity donation, the parents would then declare it on their income tax returns. That’s the real crime: not paying your taxes…
Now, just about everyone on this money chain has lost their livelihoods, even the Hallmark queen, Lori Loughlin.
And all before the facts of the case have been proven in court.
In the world of entertainment, if you are guilty in the eyes of the public, your working life is over. Just ask Jussie Smollett.
