    Actress Lori Loughlin taken into custody in 'Varsity Blues' college admission scam
    Actress Lori Loughlin was taken into custody by the FBI Wednesday in Los Angeles after she, fellow movie star Felicity Huffman and 48 others were charged in a $25 million college admissions scam that has prompted repercussions from Hollywood to the boardrooms of major companies.
    A former cast member on the ABC sitcom "Full House," Loughlin and Oscar-nominated actress Huffman, 56, are among 33 parents charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud in the nationwide scam to get their children into elite colleges, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.
    The feds dubbed the investigation "Operation Varsity Blues" and said it was triggered by an unrelated investigation by FBI agents in Boston.

Olivia, get a clue, why would anyone listen to your makeup videos. You never deserved any "makeup" endorsements. Get a real job where you actually sweat and EARN something called self respect. Try it, you might turn into a real woman.

Corruption is worldwide. It's just much better value entertainment when its the 'superpower' USA. You are a world wide joke for your country's corruption. US bank deregulation precipitated the worldwide economic depression. Education is corrupt, Pharma greed poisoned your own people with opiates. You've locked people up for life for smoking weed. What did the US do to get some leadership back (we don't care which side theyre on) Corrupt HIllary bought her ticket to FAILURE. Now smollett loser is a puppet for corrupt Michele Obama (That's if your reporting isn't the same quality as all your other output). LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD HAHAHAHAHA JUST KEEP SAYING IT till it dawns on you. You're on a land mass and we're all happy it's not connected to ours!!!!!

Behind the Hollywood Façade of: "We must be the better, we have celebrity & make more money than you",  are people who Play Dress-Up & Make Believe they are someone else. Behind that Façade lurks the created criminals which so many self entitled people become. WalkAway from Anything & All that the Hollywood morons say, we will all be better off. Let them play with the dolls of their own self but, when they speak words not written for them, tell them to go to hell...

WHITE folks doing WHITE FOLK shit. Paid 6 million dollar? What school is this? You paying that much money just on a bribe. How many kids it that one family? Just pay the tuition. But they were also cheating on the taxes making it look like a donation. I dont mess with them. They call me telling me about the Government wants to give me 6,500 grant. I listen them and the lady coaching me. Telling me ,what to say to the recruiter I spoke to the University after that just hung up the call. They must of called me at least 5 times after and a could of time the next day. It all sounds good and you never know who is listening. I can make that money. This was my exact concern

Ha! The schools SHOULD BE held accountable. Since when has The admissions department stop verifying the required information that the students submit on their application? Especially if this puts them above the rest. Like, Verify that they have actively played sports, were actually members of said organizations, verify high school GPA. Whatever happened to the interviewing process with the dean that was once required to become accepted into these elite universities? Higher Education is a dirty business... they have been selling degrees for decades. I believe, the professors see the evidence first-hand, that many of their students do not meet the academic standards for college and wonder how the hell did they get past admissions. Many of the students do not even have the aptitude to learn at that level, most cannot write clearly or coherently. It's even easier to BUY A DEGREE now that we can pay for degrees online; copy, paste, google, and plagiarize. No one is honest and original anymore . This is one hell of a cultural shift...the apocalyptic times. Let's put an end to this ol' grotesque abuse of power.

Just like we thought and have said from the very beginning, we have corralled like sheep into low admission scores, unaccepted into education programs, given lesser of the jobs and been told Let us know when you’ve learned something new and we will see what can be done to get you a raise,, this is unacceptable and because of this I want the rest of my student debt cancelled. There has been numerous times when I have read the book completed the exercises and grouped studied to see my score was less that 90% smh.. and these privileged kids walk around and look down on you and they know your intellect is far more advance.

The audacity! Lori is a sub-par actress anyway. I’ve never seen her on the big screen. The sense of entitlement is disgusting. Please believe their children KNEW that they weren’t athletic nor intelligent and scores were compromised! They took opportunities away from us “mere mortals” working hard for educational opportunities and ultimately shyyted on it when they already had a “leg up” on life due to their parents! That wasn’t enough? The children should be charged as well. I feel so sorry for kids working hard on sports & academics that never receive just due because their parents aren’t affluent. I am committed to NEVER watch ANYTHING the actresses have a roles in.

I'm sure most of the kids knew that they were cheating their way in. Some of the cheats just too obvious especially the ones that got in as athletes. Gets into school as a water polo player but does not even play the sport? Get in as a football varsity player without a football team in his high school? Don't waste tax payers money on investigating some of these case.

I’m a U.S.C. graduate in economics. I matriculated entirely on my on merit. But I don’t give a hoot if a few rich people paid to gain admission for their lass than qualified children. They busted their buts to get rich and if they can squeeze out a few perks for their children with the fruit of their labor, good for them. I wish everybody would just calm down, get off their self righteous, holier than though podiums, and just mind their own damn business. Life is not a perfectly equal enterprise, and no sane person would expect or want it to be. Besides, U.S.C. has some amazing programs for poor children living in the surrounding area, many of whom are given full scholarships to the university. Life is not a perfectly aligned machine, it’s a complex, multifaceted and constantly changing organism that will thrill and disappoint you every day.
