Actress Lori Loughlin taken into custody in 'Varsity Blues' college admission scam

Actress Lori Loughlin was taken into custody by the FBI Wednesday in Los Angeles after she, fellow movie star Felicity Huffman and 48 others were charged in a $25 million college admissions scam that has prompted repercussions from Hollywood to the boardrooms of major companies.

A former cast member on the ABC sitcom "Full House," Loughlin and Oscar-nominated actress Huffman, 56, are among 33 parents charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in the nationwide scam to get their children into elite colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.

The feds dubbed the investigation "Operation Varsity Blues" and said it was triggered by an unrelated investigation by FBI agents in Boston.

Well, by and large, the Hollywood crowd are democrats, so this sort of thing is to be expected.

Why aren’t the kids admitted falsely still enrolled? Kick them out and get kids in their place that deserve it

I knew they were buying their kids way into college but I didn’t realise that they were cheating on tests! I’ve been apathetic about this case because of course rich parents buy their kids a slot in college. Cheating on tests & taking slots in teams on top of bribery suddenly makes the outrage much more understandable

And yet colonizers have the audacity to say that white privilege does not exist.... They essentially stole these seats from kids that worked hard their entire lives to apply to their dream school, only to be denied admission. many lives were ruined, many futures altered because of White Privilege....
