In Varsity Blues Trial Isackson On Fake Proctors and Sacramento Kings Claims of Rick Singer

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

FEDERAL COURT, Sept 13 – In the first of the Varsity Blues college admissions bribery cases to come to trial, on September 13 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts Bruce Isackson, who pled guilty, was questioned. Inner City Press live tweeted, here:

Isackson  says he paid Rick Singer $250,000 for his daughter Audrew to get into USC as a crew (rowing) recruit. All that was required was a head shot.

Now shown in court: Dec 15, 2017 email from Rick Singer to Audrey Isackson, Bruce and Davina, and "Steve Masera at , "please keep this hush hush til late March."

Bruce Isackson says Singer promised him a "controlled environment" for testing for Audrey. All he had to show was that she needed more time to process questions.

AUSA: What would happen there? Isackson: The proctor would change the score.

Bruce Isackson: Audrey said she thought she'd done well on her own. Then Rick said, excuse me, She did sh*t.

 AUSA: What score did she get on the ACT?

Bruce Isackson: A 31. We paid $100,000 to the Key Worldwide Foundation, then to Rick and the proctor.

AUSA: Did you take a tax write off?

Isackson: Yes.

AUSA: Did you do it again for your son?

Isackson: Yes. We'd use the same process with Rick.

AUSA: So your son Ryan was going to get into USC as a soccer player. Did he play soccer?

Isackson: Yes.

AUSA: Did he play at a level to be recruited to USC?

Isackson. No. Not even close.

AUSA: Did Rick Singer claim to be a part owner of the Sacramento Kings?

Isackson: He did.

AUSA: Did you believe him?

Isackson: No....

The case is US  v. GAMAL ABDELAZIZ et al., 19-10080-NMG (MAD)
