All of this because Hollywood elites kids are too stupid to get into college on their own merit?

This is stupid, the rich in this country have been doing this for ever.(see dumb bush getting into Yale) If some Richie rich wants to pay for their kid to get a polka history degree, meh. Not exactly the crime of the century.

We really need to make a strong example of these parents who have nothing better to do but vicariously boost their own egos by catapulting their spawn into prestigious universities. 14 days? How about depositing them into a bog for eternity?

Waiting until Lori and Mossimo get convicted, then the real sentencing fun begins...

Hollywood elites???? Hilarious. This crap is right before you with President George W. Bush but you won't look at that but you will try to demonize another person. Seems so much of your anger is focused based on political persuasion.

You shouldn't get into elite schools just because your last name is Bush, Obama, or Clinton, but it's not something we can do much about. We could discourage legacy admissions by withholding federal funds to institutions that aren't completely transparent in their admission standards. Their massive endowments could be taxed. What tax-the-rich leftist would oppose that? Harvard has an endowment of $38 billion and growing. They could finance student loans and grants out of that. It's the poster campus for elite privilege.

I think I'll leave it to you to figure out how stupid that comment was. I don't think you will actually figure it out so, if you can't ask me and I will explain stupid.

"Their massive endowments could be taxed. "

The new tax code did just that.

"They could finance student loans and grants out of that."

Okay, you got your tax. When will the new loan and grant programs be announced?

a $30,000 fine for someone whose household net worth is $65 million is like fining someone from a median American household $45

Being a progressive Hollywood celebrity has its privileges.

Apparently the Trump DOJ is more than accommodating to those privileges as they only recommended a month in jail.

MAGA!

What is the difference of someone donating millions to the building fund and paying off someone in the college system? To me there is NO difference.

14 days!!! 5 years!!!!

Absolutely crazy and wrong

One, a homeless black mother/woman got 5 years for wanting her child to go to a better school.

A white woman got 2 weeks at a Federal prison for rich people for almost the same crime.

This is why we non- white Americans could care less what white Americans, even democrats/liberals say. You all speak with forked tongues.

but the funny part of all this, is that now Felicity is now a registered felon, she lost her right to vote. But watch her vote.

I keep seeing this '5 year to 2 weeks' show pony trotted around, feuled by MSM stories and dupes willing to spread it.
The truth:
"Williams-Bolar was convicted of some charges and handed two concurrent five-year sentences, suspended down to 10 days."
www.theatlantic.com
My understanding is that both women were convicted of differing school related felonies. Both will have served about 2 weeks.
All said and done, I do think Felicity Huffman should have been fined much more than she was.
