    College-entrance-exam cheating scandal exposes corrupt aristocracy


    "Published on Mar 14, 2019 by The Duran

    The Duran Quick Take: Episode 106.

    RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou take a quick look at the college admissions scam revolving around William Rick Singer, who was running a for-profit college-counseling program, where according to federal prosecutors, has a goal focused on helping "the wealthiest families in the U.S. get their kids into school.”

    Arrest warrants for Hollywood stars, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, were delivered on Tuesday following their alleged involvement in a college-entrance-exam cheating scandal.

    According to CNN, the women were two of around 50 people who were the subject of federal indictment following an extensive FBI investigation named “Operation Varsity Blues.”

    Loughlin’s husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was also implicated, and was arrested early on Tuesday morning.

    TMZ reported that Huffman was arrested by seven armed FBI agents. Her husband, William H. Macy, has not been charged in connection to the case. Loughlin, Giannulli, and Huffman are all facing charges of felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

    Huffman is accused of spending $15,000 on an organization that allegedly helped her daughter cheat on her SATs. Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team...for which neither of Loughlin's daughters rowed crew.

    All three were recorded by the FBI on phone calls discussing their plans to alter or lie about their children’s college applications."

    I always remember being told that any course at Moscow University could be purchased through the right contacts with the Legal qualification having the greatest price .
    This was less than two decades ago and direct from lecturers at the University .

    I trust the practise is untrue here in England .
