Lori Loughlin & Felicity Huffman Accused in College Acceptance Scandal

Both Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among 40 people accused of cheating in major college admission scandal.

Federal prosecutors in Massachusetts say that they paid bribes to a consultant who would steer the money toward SAT or ACT administrators, or a college coach. In some cases, the test administrators would then hire fake proctors to fill in correct answers. Authorities say the students generally weren’t aware of what was going on.

Loughlin and Huffman are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud. CEOs of some major companies have been charged as well. (WABC-TVNBC News)

Hot Takes:

  • These kids already have every advantage in life, and yet their parents cheat to get them into top colleges. Sick.
  • Felicity Huffman has been active in liberal causes in the past. She’s lost any moral high ground.
  • They’ll get a slap on the wrist.
  • I guess William H. Macy isn’t the only one in that household who’s Shameless.
