Lori Loughlin of Full House and Felicity Huffman of Desperate Housewives are the latest big names in this scandal. The scandal includes bribing deans, coaches, and board of trustees members to get their kids into school on an “athletic” scholarship. There is an episode of Full House where Lori’s husband in the show, Jesse, lies to get their twins into a prestigious preschool. Lori feels bad and tells the truth. Too bad she didn’t do that in real life. Her bail was 1 million dollars. She paid it like she paid the Board of Trustees Chairman at the University of Southern California.
Olivia Jade Giannulli should prolly check her privilege. This really is like in the Sopranos when Carmela Soprano bribes the Dean of Georgetown (in the show) to get her daughter into the school.
This story is wild. My favorite part is that they would photoshop the face of their kid on someone who played sports at their high school in their high school’s uniform to “prove” that their kid played the sport.
Longtime UCLA soccer coach Jorge Salcedo is indicted. The scheme at UCLA involves bribes over $25 million since 2011, cheating on entrance exams, mail fraud, lying, and even more. Bruce and Davina Isackson’s older daughter was on the team during 2017, but did not play in any games and did not play competitive soccer in high school. She was not on the 2018 women’s soccer roster, but served as the women soccer’s team manager from 2016-2018, according to her LinkedIn page. Bruce and Davina bribed and committed mail fraud. The universities are trying to act like the victim, but where are the checks, balances, and accountability?
Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, UCLA, and USC are the main schools in this fraud. Nothing like rich kids getting where they want with their parents money. That’ll teach them to not be entitled and spoiled.. yeah right.
