  • White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted out a harsh
    message insulting actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman as
    “stupid.” 
  • Loughlin and Huffman were two of nearly 50 people indicted
    Tuesday as part of a
    nationwide college-admissions scam
    .
  • Huffman was indicted on charges of mail fraud and conspiring to
    commit honest services mail fraud, and Loughlin and her husband
    were charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. 

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway tweeted out a harsh message
insulting actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, who were
indicted Tuesday for allegedly taking part in an elaborate
nationwide college admissions scam. 

“Lori Loughlin & Felicity Huffman indicted for lying and
buying spots in college. They worried their daughters are as stupid
as their mothers,” Conway
wrote. 

Loughlin and Huffman were two of at least 40 people indicted
Tuesday on charges of participating in a complex criminal scheme to
ensure their children’s acceptances into elite universities
including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, the University of Southern
California, and Wake Forest.

Prosecutors said parents made payments disguised as charitable
donations to a firm called Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF), which
posed as a charity, and allegedly served as a front that
facilitated $25 million in payments over the course of the
scheme. 


According to the charging documents
, KWF used two alleged
schemes to help kids gain access to the colleges: arranging for the
children’s test scores to be falsified and allegedly laundering
bribes to athletic coaches at universities to fraudulently get
clients’ children recruited as athletes.

Federal prosecutors charged Huffman with conspiracy to commit
mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, alleging in court
documents filed Tuesday that Huffman paid $15,000 to KWF to pay for
her daughter to take the SAT proctored by a person retained by KWF
who would correct her answers after she took the test. 

A fraudulent thank you letter letter sent from KWF to Huffman
allegedly said their payment would “allow us to move forward with
our plans to provide educational and self-enrichment programs to
disadvantaged youth.”

Authorities indicted “Full House” actress Loughlin and her
husband Mossimi Giannulli on charges of mail and wire fraud.

director, and KWF for their two daughters Isabella and Olivia Jade
Giannulli to be accepted as recruits to the school’s crew team,
even though neither of them were active rowers.
