    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.

    New details continue to emerge about the alleged college
    cheating scheme involving Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

    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.
    The Desperate Housewives alum and the Fuller House star are
    among over 40 individuals who have been charged in connection
    with the scandal. 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.

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

    The FBI affidavit states that Huffman and her "spouse," William
    H. Macy, made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 to
    participate in the scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter. She
    "later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for
    her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so," the
    document reads.

    Huffman and Macy are parents to Sofia Grace Macy, 18, and
    Georgia Grace Macy, 16.

    Macy, who has not been charged, was seated it the gallery in
    court on Tuesday afternoon as Huffman faced a judge.

    Per the court orders, the Oscar nominee will surrender her
    passport and is required to seek pre-trial approval for any

    Huffman was also granted a signature bond of $250,000 and has
    been ordered to appear in federal court in Boston on March 29.
    The signature bond requires the 56-year-old actress to sign a
    promise to return to court, but does not require a deposit of
    any cash or property with the court.

    While there are many theories as to why Macy has not been
    charged in this FBI investigation—code name Operation Varsity
    Blues—there's been no official statement from authorities.

    New York Law School professor and former prosecutor Rebecca
    Roiphe shared one theory with Vulture, stating, "One of the
    possibilities is that the husband is far less culpable. Maybe
    it's possible that the government has far more evidence than
    it's laid out here, and in this evidence, that Huffman played a
    far more significant role than her husband."

    As for Loughlin, she surrendered to the FBI on Wednesday and was
    taken into custody. She was later released on $1 million bond.

    Loughlin 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.

    The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts
    told E! News that Loughlin had not yet been arrested on Tuesday
    morning as she was out of the country. She was contact by
    federal authorities to come back and turn herself in. Loughlin's
    husband Mossimo Giannulli was arrested Tuesday morning without

    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.

    Meanwhile, William "Rick" Singer, 58, was charged racketeering
    conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud
    US and obstruction of justice for his alleged involvement in the
    scheme. E! News has confirmed that Singer pled guilty to all
    counts on Tuesday.

    According to a Tuesday press release, Singer owned and operated
    the Edge College & Career Network LLC ("The Key") – a for-profit
    college counseling and preparation business – and served as the
    CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) – a non-profit
    corporation that he established as a purported charity.

    The release stated that between approximately 2011 and February
    2019, Singer allegedly "conspired with dozens of parents,
    athletic coaches, a university athletics administrator, and
    others, to use bribery and other forms of fraud to secure the
    admission of students to colleges and universities including
    Yale University, Georgetown University, Stanford University, the
    University of Southern California, and Wake Forest University,
    among others."
