BREAKING: Dianne Feinstein's Husband Involved In College Admission Scandal


Regent of the University of California college system and husband to Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein Richard Blum, has found himself caught up in a college admissions scandal.

According to a state audit, Blum wrote an “inappropriate letter of support” for one student who likely had no chance getting into the college.

“My cousin’s brother wanted to get into Davis,” Blum admitted to the San Francisco Chronicle. “They’d send me a letter and tell me why it’s a good kid, and I’ll send it on to the chancellor. Been doing it forever.”

“I’m not convinced I’ve done anything wrong. It all sounds kinda boring to me,” he said.

Check out what the Daily Wire reported:

The UC board of Regents Policy 2201 says that “members of the Board of Regents should not seek to influence inappropriately the outcome of admissions decisions beyond sending letters of recommendation, where appropriate, through the regular admissions process and officers.” In a statement to the Chronicle, UC Regents Chair John Pérez said that these matter are taken seriously, and “any violations will be promptly and appropriately addressed.”

According to the audit, UC Berkeley staff admitted 42 students between the 2013-2014 academic school year and the 2018-2019 academic school year despite admissions reader ratings “that made it unlikely they would receive an offer of admission.”

Of the 42 applicants, 17 had connections to donors or potential donors to the university, of which five received “the lowest possible rating from both of UC Berkeley’s application readers.” Another 11 applicants were reportedly admitted based on connections to university staff members, or even acquaintances to staff members.

Yet another 14 applicants—one of them the student Blum recommended outside the normal admissions channels—were admitted off the waitlist even though they received “uncompetitive scores from readers that gave them poor chances of being admitted.”

“This applicant had only about a 26 percent chance of being admitted to UC Berkeley on their own based on the ratings that readers had assigned their application,” the audit of the applicant read. “The email records we reviewed indicate that staff in the admissions office consulted with the development office about who should be admitted from the waitlist. The admissions office also prioritized the admission of applicants on the waitlist whom staff had recommended, as well as applicants on a list that the former admissions director created. It is therefore likely that the applicant whom the Regent recommended would have been on a list that received priority admission from the waitlist. Given the low likelihood of this applicant’s admission and the prominent and influential role that Regents have within the university, we conclude that the decision to admit this applicant was likely influenced by the Regent’s advocacy.”
