ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman was cuffed by armed FBI agents in an early-morning raid with guns drawn.
She has been implicated in the massive college admissions cheating scandal along with other wealthy and famous parents who allegedly paid millions to have their children placed in elite universities.
She got the Roger Stone treatment, except without the CNN tip-off.

Felicity Huffman knew she was a target of the federal investigation into bribery in the college admissions process … but she had no idea 7 feds would show up at her door Tuesday morning with guns drawn.
Sources familiar with the arrest tell TMZ, 7 FBI agents showed up at Felicity’s Hollywood Hills home at 6 AM and drew their weapons as they ordered Felicity to come out and surrender.
We’re told Felicity, her husband William H. Macy and their 2 daughters were asleep when the agents ordered her out. Our sources say she knew the arrest was looming and would have gladly surrendered on her own, but the feds saw it differently. More
CNN didn’t get a heads up on this one? I wish the FBI would put this much effort into the Hillary Clinton investigation.
Do you think they’re the only ones? Every celebrity parent in L.A. is probably wetting their pants right about now waiting for a knock on the door. I wonder how well Hollywood slept last night?
What’s bad is they had the means to do all they needed to legally for their kids… tutoring….. sports…coaches…prep classes great schools during high school.. and they chose this option

Will it take “Aunt Becky” #LoriLoughlin and “Lynnette Scavo” #FelicityHuffman for us to finally wake up to the fact that “college” in America is broken and has been for quite some time? https://t.co/28eW3mgNwg pic.twitter.com/3KdnfayJkt

It looks like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin will be the faces of this scandal. It must suck being famous and being caught in a scandal.

Why are all the other people involved not being criticized by the media like @FelicityHuffman and Lori Loughlin? And, what about the universities that accept donations and bribe money? ????????

@FelicityHuffman What you have taken from students cannot be measured. I’m sorry but your children should not be allowed to enter or remain in the school that has been damaged by your selfless act.
