Just when we thought we heard it all with the left another scandal has broken out that really takes the cake. For years the liberal elites have screamed about white privilege and how us “everyday” folks need to apologize for it, but they are more guilty of than anyone.
In a shocking discovery, many Hollywood liberals have been discovered using their ‘privilege’ to bribe their kids into top schools around the country.
Two of those caught in the admission scam is Full House’s Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives’ Felicity Huffman.
Here is more on the story.
FOX NEWS – Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among the boldfaced names in a veritable who’s who of the rich and powerful charged in an alleged college admissions bribery scam.
Federal authorities have also charged college coaches and others in a sweeping admissions bribery case, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
A rep for “Fuller House” star Loughlin, who is reportedly filming a movie in Vancouver, told Fox News that she had no information on the case at this time. A rep for Huffman, who U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said in a press conference had been arrested by federal agents, did not return multiple requests for comment.
The racketeering conspiracy charges were unsealed Tuesday and they include charges against coaches at schools such as Wake Forest University, Georgetown and the University of Southern California. Authorities say the coaches accepted bribes in exchange for admitting students as athletes, regardless of their ability.
ABC News reported that parents would pay a predetermined amount to an as-yet-unidentified man in California, who would then give the funds to coaches, SAT or ACT administrators.
The alleged fund amounts ranged from several thousand dollars to $6 million.
The documents allege that Loughlin and her husband, famed fashion designer Massimo Giannulli, “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team – despite the fact that they did not participate in crew – thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
Officials claimed to have obtained emails from Loughlin supporting their case.
Loughlin’s daughter, the YouTube sensation Olivia Jade, attends USC. It is not immediately clear if Loughlin’s other daughter, Isabella, attends the university.
