Liberal Democrats, too lazy and stupid to compete
scholastically. This is the result of the present day inferior
California school system, once the envy of the entire free
world, after 40 years of Democrat control and parasitic
socialist union infestation.

The University of Southern California (USC) has fired two
employees who allegedly accepted enormous bribes in exchange for
facilitating the acceptance of dozens of students, the school
has said in an official statement.

Donna Heinel, a senior athletics administrator, and Jovan Vavic,
men’s and women’s water polo head coach, were axed following an
investigation into college admissions that saw such celebrities
as Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman arrested on federal
charges on Tuesday.

“We understand that the government believes that illegal
activity was carried out by individuals who went to great
lengths to conceal their actions from the university,” USC said,
according to its paper the Daily Trojan. “USC is conducting an
internal investigation. Donna Heinel and Jovan Vavic have been
terminated and the university will take additional employment
actions as appropriate.”

Two more USC athletics employees, women's soccer coaches Laura
Janke and Ali Khosroshahin, were indicted, though it is not
known yet if they have been fired as a consequence.

Heinel, 57, is accused of accepting a $500,000 bribe from
Loughlin, who rose to fame on the popular family sitcom "Full
House." Loughlin and her husband were both charged with bribing
officials to get their daughter, YouTube "influencer" Olivia
Jade Giannulli, into the school.

Vavic, also 57, is accused of accepting a $250,000 bribe in
exchange for declaring two students as recruits for his water
polo team in order to get them into USC.

The school's statement added detail on the fired employees'
alleged crimes, which spanned at least four years. They are
accused of connections to a sprawling admissions bribery scheme
led by William Rick Singer.

“On multiple occasions between 2014 and 2018, Singer’s clients
made payments of more than $1.3 million to USC accounts
controlled by Heinel, typically an account for the USC Women’s
Athletic Board,” the documents read. “Singer also entered into a
sham consulting agreement with Heinel. … In exchange for the
bribe payments, Heinel helped facilitate the admission of more
than two dozen students as recruited athletes.”

Singer, through his charitable organization, is accused of
receiving $25 million in bribes since 2011 to help the children
of wealthy and influential parents gain entry to elite
universities including Stanford, Yale and USC. On Tuesday, he
pleaded guilty to four charges against him and admitted to his
crimes. "All of these things, and many more things, I did," he
said, according to CNN.

"I created a side door that would guarantee families would get
in."

According to records, Singer allegedly made payments to Vavic
for students to be listed as members of the water polo team and
gain entry to the university, but never participated in any
sports. Vavic was reportedly taken into custody in Honolulu on
Tuesday.

A similar situation may have been in play with Loughlin's
daughter Olivia, who is among students for whom fake profiles
were allegedly created to allow her to appear as an athletic
recruit. Fake profiles were said to have been created to label
both of Loughlin's daughters as women's crew recruits, though
they had no history of rowing athletically and weren't listed as
current members of the USC women's crew team.

According to court documents, things began to fall apart for
Singer's organization when a counselor became suspicious about
her admission based on her crew involvement, because she did not
play the sport. This apparently led to a public confrontation
between the counselor and Loughlin's husband, designer Mossimo
Giannulli, leading Heinel to leave him a voicemail asking that
such an occurrence not happen again.

Loughlin's daughter Olivia currently attends USC and documents
her time there on her YouTube page, which has nearly two million
subscribers. In one video, she said she "really doesn't care
about school," and wanted to go to attend parties and game days.

At least 50 high -profile business owners, celebrities and
prominent coaches were charged on Tuesday in connection to the
bribery sting, which U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling has labeled
the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the
Department of Justice.”

That makes no sense, as Loughlin is accused to spending $500k *total*
