I don’t think I can even comprehend how much money this is. I just…holy crap.
A woman is suing Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman and others involved in the gross and widespread college admissions scandal for– wait for it– $500 billion. That’s billion with a “b.”
Jennifer Kay Toy, a teacher from Oakland, Calif., said her son Joshua did not get into many of the schools implicated in a wide ranging college admissions scandal involving the actresses.
“Joshua applied to some of the colleges where the cheating took place and did not get in,” Toy said in the fraud class action suit filed in a San Francisco court.
“Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason.”
At this point, she has every right to question their practices.
“I’m outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough but because wealthy individuals felt that it was ok to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children’s way into a good college,” she said.
That could very well be the case. I’m not sure about his specific circumstances, but we know FOR SURE that those celebs bribed people to get their “precious angels” into colleges they wouldn’t have gotten into otherwise. It’s gross.
Huffman and Loughlin were among the roughly 30 parents charged Tuesday in what officials have called the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.”
Just wait. There are more lawsuits on the horizon. I just know it.
