Bombshell Connection Between High-Ranking Democrat Donors And The College Bribery Scandal

The general thrust of the mainstream coverage of this week’s charges against a bunch of rich elites for allegedly bribing Ivy League schools to admit their kids has been a by-the-numbers story of the wealthy exploiting their wealth to secure unearned privileges for their families at the expense of poorer students.

While that’s certainly true, it also fits perfectly with standard Democrat class rhetoric, such that Elizabeth Warren can talk tough about having “zero sympathy” for the accused (because using fake race claims rather than money to advance yourself is apparently better). But surprise surprise, it turns out there is indeed a political angle.

The Washington Free Beaconlooked at the list of the accused, and found several who use their wealth to fund leftists just like Warren:

[Felicity] Huffman, when not acting, is a generous donor to Democratic candidates. Huffman has donated thousands of dollars since 2016 to Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), according to the Federal Election Commission’s site. Prior to that, she donated frequently to President Barack Obama’s election efforts […]

[Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP co-chair Gordon] Caplan gave the maximum allowable donation to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. He donated an additional $25,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund and $22,300 to the Democratic National Committee in 2016, months before Clinton lost to Donald Trump. Caplan began giving to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) in 2005.
