an Oh Myyy Property

Many people were appalled when the Justice Department announced that 50 people were being charged with various crimes related to gaming the system to ensure their children's admission to elite universities including Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, as well as others.

One of those indicted was Lori Loughlin of Full House fame.


It was brought up that Loughlin's crimes closely reflect the plot of an episode of Full House from season 6 titled "Be True to Your Preschool."

In the episode, Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) and Aunt Becky (Loughlin) try to enroll their children in a prestigious preschool attended by one of Jesse's friends children.

In the process of trying to get Nicky and Alex enrolled, Jesse realizes they may not be accepted unless he lies on their application. He doesn't reveal this to Becky until the family is called into the preschool for an interview, and she reluctantly agrees to go along with whatever Jesse put on the application.

The pair eventually realize the error of their ways, but not until after Jesse utters this doozy of a line:

"The most important thing in the world right now is their education. I'm their father; if I don't lie for them, who will?"

Twitter had no shortage of things to say about the similarities.




Several people called for Loughlin and the others to face the consequences of their unethical (and illegal) actions.





According to the Associated Press, Loughlin turned herself in around 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday. She and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 to have the University of Southern California record their daughters as crew team recruits, despite the fact that neither of them are rowers.

Loughlin appeared in court yesterday afternoon, where she was ordered to surrender her passport (by December of this year, after she finishes filming in British Columbia, Canada) and her bail was set at $1 million.

The couple put up the deed to their home as bond and were released to return home.

Loughlin and Giannulli are only two of the 50 facing charges; bribery in the admissions process is a much bigger problem than most people thought. Hopefully this exposure will help to prevent parents from attempting to influence the admissions process in the future.
