Richard Blum advocated inappropriately for a waitlisted student to be admitted to UC Berkeley

Richard Blum, a wealthy investment banker and Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband, was revealed Thursday as the mystery University of California regent in a state audit earlier this week who inappropriately penned a letter that likely helped a borderline student gain admission to UC Berkeley.

The explosive audit released Tuesday found that dozens of students were admitted to the most selective UC campuses over more qualified applicants because of exaggerated athletic abilities, connections and wealth.

The audit did not name the individuals involved, instead using generic terms like “coach” and “donor.” The auditor’s office said the lack of identification was meant to protect student privacy. But in response to a specific question from the Bay Area News Group about the identity of the regent, spokeswoman Margarita Fernandez said the report refers to Richard Blum.

BJ -

Damn, we literally -

are in the process of prosecuting and incarcerating people for these very crimes.

Sure hope that his being connected doesn't tip the scales of justice (wouldn't want BubbleCult member Colfax to have to claim fingers were tipping the scales of justice again.)
