(PresidentialWire.com)- Actress Lori Loughlin was set free from a California Prison this Monday, bringing to an end her punishment for reportedly paying $500,000 to the University of Southern California to guarantee admittance for her daughters.
Rich liberals always seem to get it easy, huh?
A report from People said that Loughlin was released from a federal correction facility in Dublin, California, after spending just two months there. Her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was sentenced to five months in prison for his involvement in the “Varsity Blues” college admissions scandal.
When reports of the scandal came out, Loughlin was accused of having her daughters pretend to be crew athletes, despite neither ever having competitively rowed, to hide their pay-for-admittance scheme.
People also offered an insight into Loughlin’s experience in prison, with an anonymous source reportedly telling the outlet that she had an uneventful and unremarkable time.
“She was a little weepy on her first night there, but she pulled herself together quickly,” the source claimed. “She hasn’t had any specific problems. No one is bullying her.”
Sounds like she just got a couple of months to relax for a while.
In response to the outing of the scandal, Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli said that she is a “poster child of white privilege” presumably in an attempt to fight off criticism from far-left activists.
“When all this first happened and it became public, I remember thinking ‘how are people mad about this?’ I the bubble I grew up in, I didn’t know so much outside of it,” she said. “And a lot of kids in that bubble, their parents were donating to schools and doing stuff…so many advantaged.”
Giannulli appeared to be unaware that the vast majority of families in America are not as rich as hers, and would never enjoy the privilege she does.
The 2019 college admissions scandal involved 53 people, with charges ranging from mail fraud and honest services mail fraud to money laundering. A total of 33 parents of college applicants were accused of paying out as much as $25 million between 2011 and 2018.
Loughlin was among the most high profile people accused, with actress Felicity Huffman also serving 14 days in jail for her role in the scandal.
Maybe this isn’t white privilege but…rich liberal privilege.
