    Thread is being hijacked by the stupidest of arguments. I suppose AOC and Berinie should live on the street?

    I didn't see the whole story but last night CNN was saying the feds were charging her with money laundering? Apparently because Singer used fake charities and they "donated" to those fake charities, the feds consider it wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering so she could be facing as much as 20 years in prison. I'm sure they will plea that down but she's apparently in much worse shape than Huffman because of the way they paid the bribe and that she did it for 2 kids so she has 2 instances of money laundering. Apparently her 2 daughters were admitted to USC as "crew" members even though they didn't row crew.

    The Youtube famous daughter has apparently stopped talking to her parents, that's right she's blaming her parents. Clearly she knew she wasn't really getting into USC legitimately and went along with it why blame her parents?

    If a well off person donates $1 million to renovate a building at an ivy league school, do they get to deduct that on their taxes as charity?

    John Stamos, the tv husband of Lori Loughlin on Full House said he still "can't process it" but he fully supports her. Said "the crime, if there was one is far exceeded by the punishment."

    If there was one, perfect definition of privilege, wealth, religion etc making people think they're above the law. What do you mean if there was one she paid a bribe to someone to fraudulently get her children into a college by pretending to be part of an athletic program they weren't actually part of. She didn't shoot someone or rob a bank but it's 100% a crime.

    I find it interesting on the heels of the rich and powerful working the college system,including cheating on SATs, the solution put forth by those who run tests like the SAT is to eliminate the hardship scores for people who come from meager means or economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

    I always found it interesting who they choose to go after in such things. Big SAT cheating ring was busted maybe 15 years ago, most of the people involved were kids from rich families who paid to cheat so their kid could get into a more prestigous school, almost all the headlines were about a few athletes who'd cheated to get a qualifying SAT score for college.

    Why focus on the rich prepschool kids when you can pick on the kid from a poor neighborhood.

    This is entire thing just reinforces the idea of privileged in this country. Having said that I am more apt to forgive Huffman who seems like she is taking responsibility verses Loughlin. I couldn't care less if either of them act again but honestly I would turn off anything with Loughlin in it.
