Fiery 'I Hope They Go Medieval': Sen. Kennedy Fumes at Suspects in College Admissions Scandal
Louisiana Republican Sen. John N. Kennedy said he hopes federal prosecutors "go Medieval" on those arrested in connection with a college admissions cheating scandal.
"Full House" actress Lori Loughlin, her designer husband Massimo Giannulli, actress Felicity Huffman, New York beverage executive Gregory Abbott, and former Macau casino magnate Gamal Aziz Abdulaziz were among dozens charged in the scandal.
Kennedy called their alleged actions "some of the most odious, vile, repugnant and reprehensible conduct I've ever seen."
"Reading the indictment... made me want to heave," he said, blasting the wealthy individuals who allegedly paid bribes to a California company who promised to facilitate their children's entry into universities.
Kennedy took particular exception to the alleged actions of William McGlashan, a California venture capitalist whose self-described business model is "ethical investing" according to the senator.
McGlashan reportedly said "I love it" when another alleged perpetrator explained the scheme to him, Kennedy said.
"I hope they go Medieval on these people," he added. "I vote federal prison [for them]."
