FBI accuses wealthy parents, including celebrities, in college-entrance bribery scheme
Authorities said the defendants used “bribery and other forms of fraud” to facilitate their children’s admission to schools such as Georgetown, Yale and Stanford.
I'm glad these people were caught.
The article points out that the people in this case were prosecuted because "the wealthy" should not have a backdoor that bypasses the admissions system as it's unfair.
At the same time though there is this quote: "US Attorney re the Huffman/Loughlin (among others) college scam: "We're not talking about donating a building...we're talking about fraud.""
This baffles me as it seems to morally be the same issue just at a different (10-100x lower) price point?Posted on 2019-03-13T07:12:06+0000
