White House advisor Kellyanne Conway tweeted out a harsh message insulting actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, who were indicted Tuesday for allegedly taking part in an elaborate nationwide college admissions scam.
“Lori Loughlin & Felicity Huffman indicted for lying and buying spots in college. They worried their daughters are as stupid as their mothers,” Conway wrote.
Loughlin and Huffman were two of at least 40 people indicted Tuesday on charges of participating in a complex criminal scheme to ensure their children’s’ acceptances into elite universities including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, the University of Southern California, and Wake Forest.
Prosecutors said parents made payments disguised as charitable donations to a firm called Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF), which posed a charity, and allegedly served as a front that facilitated $25 million in payments over the course of the scheme.
According to the charging documents, KWF used two alleged schemes to help kids gain access to the colleges: arranging for the childrens’ test scores to be falsified and allegedly laundering bribes to athletic coaches at universities to get clients’ children fraudulently recruited as athletes.

Federal prosecutors charged Huffman with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, alleging in court documents filed Tuesday that Huffman paid $15,000 to KFW to pay for her daughter to take the SAT proctored by a person retained by KFW who would correct her answers after she took the test.
A fraudulent thank you letter later sent from KFW to Huffman allegedly said their payment would “allow us to move
forward with our plans to provide educational and self-enrichment programs to disadvantaged youth.”
