Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman Among Many Involved in College Admissions Bribery Scandal

Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among the many parents caught in a college admissions scandal, where a fake non-profit served as a front to launder money that would help their kids into elite colleges and universities. The organization was run by William Rick Singer, who received over $25 million in bribes from over 40 parents. Some of the prestigious schools include Stanford, Yale, and Georgetown University. 

Both Loughlin and Huffman are accused of paying large sums of money to Singer, and according to the U.S Attorney’s Office as of March 12, the FBI had phone calls between Loughlin and Huffman where they discussed this college admissions scam. "We're talking about deception and fraud — fake test scores, fake credentials, fake photographs, bribed college officials," said the U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling, during the press conference. Lelling stated that parents paid Singer to fake their children’s test scores to receive fake high scores on college entrance exams including the SAT and ACT.

Supposedly, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli paid about $500,000 for their two daughters to be designated as recruits for the crew team at University of Southern California. Huffman also allegedly paid for her eldest daughter to have more time on her SAT exam.

Loughlin or Huffman have yet to speak out on the scandal.
