Lori Loughlin Really Wanted to Empty Her Full House: Officials Allege Actress, as Well as Felicity Huffman, Bribed Officials to Get Kids into College


Lori Loughlin, long time angelic face of “Full House,” and Felicity Huffman, the “smart” Oscar nominated actress from “Transamerica” and Emmy nominated from “Desperate Housewives,” have been named in a $25 million college entrance exam scandal.

They are each charged with bribing college officials to get their daughters into college. Loughlin and her husband paid $500,000 to get their daughter  into school. Huffman husband William Macy paid just $15,000.

Their money went to bribing athletic directors and other officials.

Loughlin and Huffman are named in the indictment, but there are 31 other parents involved too, as well as school adminstrators.

I don'[t know Loughlin, but I do know the Macys. This is so far from their world, I can’t believe they got involved in it.

Here is the actual indictment. A press conference is going on now claiming that among the parents is a famous fashion designer and some CEOs.
