Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have resigned from the super-exclusive Bel-Air Country Club … this after a sort of war that broke out following a decision to suspend but reinstate the couple after completing their sentence … sources tell TMZ. Sources say the club’s board of directors voted unanimously to suspend Lori and Mossimo, but the suspension is lifted while they are serving their sentences. Some members did not like the decision. Former president Michael Gallagher pulled a scathing letter to the board of directors, obtained by TMZ, in which he said … “This unprecedented decision by the board of directors to allow criminals to continue as members causes irreparable damage to the reputation of the Club and its members. “
Gallagher continues… “The BACC is a club of gentlemen and women. Gentlemen are not criminals, and criminals in turn are not gentlemen. You cannot be a member in good standing and guilty of a crime at the same time, it is a non sequitur. “ And, it was not done … “The action of the board of directors, taken on behalf of the members of the Club, now establishes our Club as a place of refuge and comfort for known criminals … This question is already well known in the world of golf, nationally and internationally, and our Club has become the laughing stock. “ Our sources say the members were deeply divided. Some members were in favor of Lori and Mossimo while others wanted them definitely. We are told that Lori and Mossimo did not want to be in the middle of a war between the members, so they voluntarily resigned. We are told that Mossimo joined us because he is an avid golfer – Lori also plays golf, but not as much. As we reported, Lori co-signed a plea agreement and will serve 2 months in prison and Mossimo will serve 5 months. What is also interesting … Rick Singer, the brain in the college admissions scandal, was also well known to many wealthy parents on the west side of Los Angeles. We don’t know if other club members knew or used Singer, but at the very least, it would be incredibly surprising that Lori and Mossimo were the only members who were aware of Singer’s exploits. Gallagher said in his letter that he was resigning. We don’t know if he changed his mind after Lori and Mossimo resigned. We’ve reached out to Lori, Mossimo and Michael Gallagher … so far, no word of return.
