Yes, the people going, “Oh God, I can’t with your asses,” in the background speak for us all!
Lori Loughlin and Mossimo are facing decades upon decades in the clink, because they refused to take a plea deal and plead guilty, so they got even more charges thrown at them for their alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal. We already heard from a source who claimed that Aunt Becky and Mossimo were telling people that they didn’t know they were doing anything illegal by bribing an official, but if they said that in court, there’s a good chance Lady Justice would fart on both of their mouths. Because the court doesn’t really count ignorance of a law as an excuse. So they’ve reportedly came up with another genius excuse!
I guess Lori isn’t thinking of taking a plea to save her daughters. Because TMZ says that Lori and Mossimo’s lawyers think they have a solid defense, which is why they didn’t jump at a deal and decided to plead not guilty. They claim that the mastermind behind the college admissions scheme Rick Singer didn’t tell them how he was going to use the $500,000 they gave him to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose in USC. They didn’t know Rick was going to grease the palms of the athletic directors at USC. And yes, Rick asked for pictures of Olivia and Isabella on a rowing machine, but that doesn’t mean Lori and Mossimo knew he was going to get them in through the rowing team. “Your honor, we just thought Mr. Singer was into some kind of creepy teen girl rowing fetish and we thought we’d help him out. We’re good people like that!”
Of course, TMZ says that defense is holier than an old Mossimo for Target t-shirt after washing it once. They also may bring up how rich bitches have been buying their kids’ way into college with a library, or whatever, for centuries!
One big problem … according to the complaint, Giannulli — not Loughlin — sent at least $100k directly to the assistant athletic director.
And, we’re told, they have a more basic defense … colleges have horse-traded with relatives of prospective students for decades … e.g., fund the wing of a school building and your child will miraculously get accepted. It’s not only been tolerated by many schools … it’s aggressively encouraged by some of the schools, and parents know it.
A former assistant coach at USC is expected to plead guilty, so they may rat on Lori and Mossimo.
First of all, Lori and Mossimo were dumb enough to allegedly use straight-up cash to get their daughters into USC instead of buying The Aunt Becky And Mossimo Water Fountain ($500,000 wouldn’t even buy them a couple of bricks to build a library). Second of all, Lori and Mossimo were dumb enough to not take a plea. Third of all, Lori and Mossimo are dumb for thinking the court is as dumb as them and is going to buy their dumb excuse. But then again, maybe they’re not that dumb at all and are going to get off (they’re totally going to get off). I mean, it worked for Don Jr.!
