Rich Walmart Girl Pays Poor Girl To Get Degree 

The AP tells us of one of the Walmart heirs, Elizabeth Laurie. It seems she did really well at college and got her degree. Sort of:
"Elizabeth Paige Laurie's name was on a sports arena when a former University of Southern California roommate alleged the Wal-Mart heiress paid her $20,000 to do her homework. Now it isn't even on a USC diploma.

Laurie, the granddaughter of Wal-Mart co-founder Bud Walton, has returned her degree, nearly a year after Elena Martinez told ABC's '20/20' that she had written term papers and done assignments for Laurie for 3 1/2 years.

'Paige Laurie voluntarily has surrendered her degree and returned her diploma to the university. She is not a graduate of USC,' the school said in a statement dated Sept. 30 but not widely disseminated until the school newspaper wrote about it late last week. "

Let's see... she only cheated for 3.5 years out of the 4. That first six months must have been hard work, finding someone to pay off.

Lying, cheating, stealing rich people. It's the money. If they would just get rid of their money, they wouldn't be such criminals, but they are addicted and can't stop. maybe they need an intervention.
