One of the issues that have taken this country by storm over the last couple of years would have to be the college admissions scandal, and you would be surprised at just how many big names have popped up concerning it.

An immense amount of celebrities, top business executives, and even President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner have been named in this scandal, which is an attempt to buy college professionals off to get unqualified young people into top schools.

There is, however, one major name that has popped up that would truly raise quite a few eyebrows: that of former president Barack Obama and his family.

This connection becomes evident with one individual named Gordon Ernest.

Ernest was a well-known tennis coach at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. and then he was a coach at the University of Rhode Island.

Besides being on the payroll for both of these schools, Ernest also taught private lessons; interestingly enough, his most notable students were Sasha and Malia Obama.

Is there a link between bribery and the fact that Ernest was Sasha and Malia’s tennis coach? To date, no there isn’t.

However, the fact that Ernest has been accused of racketeering and padding his pockets with at least $2.5 million from 2012 to 2018 should serve as a warning to us… dishonesty does at times come into contact with many influential people.

Even though it appears that Sasha and Malia got on the tennis team legitimately, many other individuals missed out on a spot simply because Ernest lied through his teeth to get other undeserving people a spot on his tennis team.

Ernest used a nonprofit organization called the Key Worldwide Foundation to siphon these bribes, and he worked with crooked founder Rick Singer to use it as a front for encouraging wealthy parents to help their unqualified children cheat to get into these universities.

Mediocre students? With Singer and Ernest at the helm, it didn’t matter. As they say, “If you’ve got the money, I’ve got the time.”

So far, notable institutions of higher learning such as Yale, Stanford, Harvard, Georgetown, the University of San Diego, the University of Texas, UCLA, and the University of Southern California have all been implicated.

And while it’s a good thing that the Obamas haven’t been implicated in this, can’t you just picture the Bidens or the Clintons trying to pull something like this?

I sure can!
