It is Monday so what will this week’s scandal be?
I think an undercovered aspect of the college admission scandal has been the role of former USC women’s soccer coach Ali Khosroshahin and his assistant coach Laura Janke.
We now know the scandal came to the government’s attention when a Los Angeles-based parent whose daughter played club soccer implicated the Yale women’s soccer coach. Khosroshahin and Janke run a club soccer program.
Is it possible William Singer, who orchestrated the whole scheme, used Khosroshahin and Janke as a means to get to Donna Heinel?
Someone had to approach Heinel and make a proposal to get her involved in all of this.
That would explain how Heinel would ever get tangled up with Singer when they had no prior relationship. Court documents show she worked closely with Janke on the fabricated cases of athletes getting into USC.
Singer directed around $350,000 to the private soccer club run by Khosroshahin and Janke, according to court documents. The pair designated four children of Singer’s clients as recruits for the USC women’s soccer team but none of those children actually played competitive soccer.
