    Liberal Democrats, too lazy and stupid to compete
    scholastically. This is the result of the present day inferior
    California school system, once the envy of the entire free
    world, after 40 years of Democrat control and parasitic
    socialist union infestation.

    Hallmark has officially cut ties with Lori Loughlin following
    allegations of her involvement in the now infamous college
    cheating scheme.

    "We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college
    admissions allegations," Crown Media Family Networks said in a
    statement Thursday. "We are no longer working with Lori Loughlin
    and have stopped development of all productions that air on the
    Crown Media Family Network channels involving Lori Loughlin
    including Garage Sale Mysteries, an independent third party

    Loughlin has appeared in a number of productions for Hallmark,
    including the TV series When Calls the Heart, which she's
    starred in since 2014. As for the future of When Calls the
    Heart, Crown Media Family Networks tells E! News that the show
    will not air on Sunday, March 17, adding, "We are evaluating all
    creative options related to When Calls the Heart series."

    This news from Hallmark comes two days after Loughlin, actress
    Felicity Huffman and over 40 other individuals were charged in
    connection with an alleged college entrance exam scheme.

    On Tuesday, March 12, E! News obtained court documents which
    show that both Huffman and Loughlin have been charged with
    conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

    According to the FBI affidavit, the scheme involved getting
    students admitted into elite colleges.

    "Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present,
    the defendants—principally individuals whose high-school aged
    children were applying to college—conspired with others to use
    bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children's
    admission to colleges and universities in the District of
    Massachusetts and elsewhere, including Yale University, Stanford
    University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern
    California, and the University of California – Los Angeles,
    among others," the affidavit states.

    On the same day that the news of the scheme broke, E! News
    confirmed that 13 defendants were taken into custody in the Los
    Angeles area, including defendant Huffman.

    Loughlin's husband Mossimo Giannulli was arrested Tuesday
    morning without incident.

    On Wednesday, Loughlin surrendered to the FBI and was taken into
    custody. She was later released on $1 million bond. The actress
    will be allowed to retain her passport for travel on a current
    project in British Columbia, her next court appearance will be
    in Boston Federal court on March 29.

    It's noted in the FBI affidavit, "The Guannullis agreed to a pay
    bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two
    daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team—despite
    the fact that they did not participate in crew—thereby
    facilitating their admission to USC."

    Loughlin and Giannulli have two daughters, Isabella Rose, 20,
    and YouTube star Olivia Jade, 19.
