The details of Operation Varsity Blues are still unfolding, and a number of parents involved in the scheme, including actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, are facing additional charges than initially thought. 11 of the 15 parents who were initially charged have been hit with additional charges of conspiring “to commit federal program bribery by bribing employees of the University of Southern California (USC) to facilitate their children’s admission.”
Part of the evidence brought forth with these new charges is an email from Giannulli to his accountant. The email included a forward invoice for $200,000 from Rick Singer — the man running the admissions scheme — and a note saying “Good news my daughter…is in [U]SC… bad is I had to work the system.”
The prosecutors revealed that the money was wired the same day that Giannulli’s daughter received her acceptance into USC.
According to People, a source claims that the stress is really getting to Loughlin and Giannulli.
“This stress is about to break them. They feel like this is David versus Goliath,” the insider added. “How do you go up against the federal government, when the government has decided to make an example out of you? How can you possibly move forward from this?
She is angry, she is sad, but most of all, she is terrified. It just gets worse and worse for her. And you have to remember: nothing new has happened. They could have charged her with all of this last spring. But they waited. She feels like she is a scapegoat.”
Probably should have thought of that before she committed multiple felonies.
