Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., a 2020 presidential candidate, attended a fundraiser co-hosted by a woman indicted in the college admissions scandal, Page Six reports.
Marketing CEO Jane Buckingham allegedly paid $50,000 for an ACT proctor to take the exam in her son's place so he would get into the University of Southern California. She was charged Tuesday along with 33 other parents in the massive college cheating scandal.
Buckingham also paid $2,800 to be co-host of an event for Gillibrand at the home of Los Angeles FC owner Larry Berg and his wife, Allison, last Saturday.
Other co-hosts included Will Ferrell, Harvard MBA and author Samantha Ettus, "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes and her agent Chris Silbermann.
Gillibrand joined the crowded Democratic primary field in mid-January.
