College Cheating Scam Linked to Felicity Huffman, Lori Laughlin, Others

By

Parents always want to help their kids do well in life and would do almost anything to help give them a leg up. But a nationwide college admissions cheating scam has implicated dozens of parents β€” including celebrity moms Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman β€” who went as far as buying their children's admission into prestigious universities.

The top defendant in the case, court records reveal, is William Rick Singer, the man behind an organization called Key Worldwide Foundation, which he set up as a charity. Through their "donations" Singer's clients were essentially bribing their way into elite schools like Stanford, Yale, and USC on their kids' behalf.
