Bel-Air Country Club pushes Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were expelled from the exclusive Bel-Air Country Club, where top members were enraged at their recent federal guilty pleas, making the establishment a “place of refuge and comfort for known criminals.”

The couple left the club this month, TMZ reportedweeks later plead guilty to bribe her daughters’ ways at the University of Southern California as part of a national college admission scandal involving dozens of wealthy parents.

Their resignation came amid a battle between the members over how to handle the high-profile couple.

While the club’s Board of Directors unanimously voted to suspend the Loughlin-Giannullis, some members were outraged that they were not expelled indefinitely.

At least one prominent member, former Board President Michael Gallager, said he was giving up on the decision in a burning letter, TMZ reported.

“BACC is a club for men and women. Gentlemen are not criminals, and criminals in turn are not knights. You cannot be a reputable member and guilty of a serious crime at the same time, it is not a kidnapping, “Gallagher wrote.

He continued: “The action of the board, taken on behalf of the Club membership, now establishes our Club as a place of refuge and comfort for known criminals. . . This matter is already well known in the world of golf, nationally and internationally, and our Club has become a laughingstock. ”

Loughlin and Giannulli, who is reportedly an avid golf player, left voluntarily, not wanting to feed the crack, according to the gossip site.

The drama unfolded after the 55-year-old former “Full House” actress agreed to spend two months in jail, pay a $ 150,000 fine and perform 100 hours of community service in exchange for pleading guilty on May 22 a conspiracy to commit electronic and electronic fraud.

Her husband, fashion designer Giannulli, 56, pleaded guilty to the same charge, plus one count of wire fraud and honest mail. He agreed to serve five months behind bars, pay a $ 250,000 fine, and do 250 hours of community service.
