According to TMZ, Lori and Mossimo had become a lightning rod in the club and sparked a war of words between the members and the Board of Directors.

Initially, the club’s Board of Directors unanimously voted to suspend the couple’s membership until they had completed their prison terms and legal obligations. Many members were furious that the couple was not expelled indefinitely.

In a letter to the board, former President Michael Gallagher said: “This unprecedented board decision to allow criminals to continue as members causes irreparable damage to the reputation of the Club and its members.”

And he adds: “BACC is a gentlemen’s and ladies’ club. Gentlemen are not criminals, and criminals are not gentlemen. You cannot be a member of good standing and guilty of a serious crime at the same time, it is not a kidnapping”. “

“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,” he writes. “This matter is already well known in the world of golf, nationally and internationally, and our Club has become a laughingstock.”

TMZ says the “Fuller House” star and her husband did not want to be in the middle of the disputes, so they voluntarily quit.
