If you thought Aunt Becky, Felicity Huffman, and the dirtbags who profited from the college bribery scam were the worst people to come out of it, you underestimated other delusional, opportunist parents who couldn’t resist a free hand out.
Jennifer Kay Toy, a Bay Area mother and award-winning former school teacher from Oakland, California , has listed 45 people indicted last week in Operation Varsity Blues in her $500 BILLION lawsuit that claims her only son was disadvantaged due to the “heinous and despicable acts” of the scammers.
“Joshua applied to some of the colleges where the cheating took place and did not get in,” Toy said. “Joshua and I believed that he’d had a fair chance just like all other applicants but did not make the cut for some undisclosed reason.” Toy maintains firm language throughout the filing, calling the defendants’ actions “despicable” and “heinous.”
Kay Toy claims her son Joshua achieved a 4.2 GPA but was not admitted into some of the schools listed in the scandal. She continued, according to ABC 7:
“I’m not a wealthy person, but even if I were wealthy I would not have engaged in the heinous and despicable actions of defendants. I’m outraged and hurt because I feel that my son, my only child, was denied access to a college not because he failed to work and study hard enough, but because wealthy individuals felt that it was OK to lie, cheat, steal and bribe their children’s way into a good college.”
Kay Toy’s lawsuit is the richest, but far from the only one. As Complex points out, two Stanford students have filed a class action lawsuit against the universities caught up in the scandal. Erica Olsen and Kalea Woods claim the value of their Stanford degrees has diminished given the university’s tarnished reputation in the wake of the scandal.
Aunt Becky was recently released from prison on $1 million bail. Something tells me that won’t be the last time she’ll be digging in her wallet.
