William ‘Rick’ Singer, founder of for-profit college prep business Edge College & Career Network also known as “The Key,” and the alleged mastermind behind one of the largest college admissions scams to ever hit the U.S., appears to be jewish:
Singer, 58, has been called the “ringleader” behind the scheme, purportedly collecting roughly $25 million from dozens of individuals including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin over the course of nearly a decade to bribe school coaches and administrators into pretending their children were athletic recruits to ensure their admission into top tier colleges, prosecutors say.
The Newport Beach, Calif., businessman agreed to plead guilty in Boston federal court Tuesday to charges including racketeering conspiracy and obstruction of justice. As a part of his guilty plea, Singer said he would pay at least $3.4 million to the feds, The Boston Globe reports.
On his website for The Key, Singer describes himself as a dedicated father and coach who understands the pressure put on families surrounding college acceptances. The Key calls itself “the nation’s largest private life coaching and college counseling company.”
…Andrew Lelling, U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, reportedly claimed Singer’s clients paid him “anywhere between $200,000 and $6.5 million” for his unique services.
Parents of prospective students conspired with a college entrance consultant to beat the system and ensure their students were admitted or had a better chance to be admitted to certain colleges or universities, including Yale, Stanford, Texas, UCLA, USC, Wake Forest and others.
“According to the charging documents, Singer facilitated cheating on the SAT and ACT exams for his clients by instructing them to seek extended time for their children on college entrance exams, which included having the children purport to have learning disabilities in order to obtain the required medical documentation,” the U.S. Justice Department explained, in part, in an online statement
…Singer also served as CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF), a non-profit he claimed was a charity. Bribery payments were disguised as donations to KWF in sums up to $75,000 per SAT or ACT exam, the Justice Department said, noting that many students didn’t realize their parents had staged anything.
We should all give Singer the benefit of the doubt at this point and not conclude that his apparent jewish ancestry has anything to do with the massive level of fraud that he appears to have had a hand in. After all, we are often told that people of all races, ethnicities, and religions commit fraud, but sometimes it’s hard not to notice that many of the largest cases of fraud that come to light often involve people of the jewish persuasion, such as Ivan Boesky, Lehman Brothers, Enron, MF Global, WorldCom, Tyco International, and Bernie Madoff.
The Talmud, the jewish “holy book”, is very clear on this issue: under certain circumstances it’s perfectly “kosher” to cheat the gentiles, but only if it doesn’t bring dangerous and undesirable attention upon the jewish community. And the reasoning behind this prohibition should be self-evident. When the goyim start asking irritating questions about why so much of the fraud is committed by Jews, it puts Jews on the defensive, forcing them to call their critics “antisemites”.
Granted, many of the people involved in this particular case are not jewish, but unfortunately the ringleader is apparently jewish, and that’s not the traditional way of doing business, which is to hire gentile frontmen who will take the blame if things go wrong. With all the antisemitism on the rise today, this is the last thing the Jews need right now.
