In the latest Bernie Madoff saga, the slimebag had the nerve to ask the court to allow him to keep $69 million dollars in assets. Why? Because it’s in his wives name. Personally, I think he should be in jail, and not under house arrest at his bazillion dollar mansion.

U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Madoff and his lawyer claim the apartment, $45 million in municipal bonds and $17 million more in a separate account all belong to Madoff’s wife, Ruth.is seeking to keep a $7 million Manhattan penthouse and an additional $62 million in assets, saying they are unrelated to the fraud that authorities say cost victims more than $50 billion. In court papers filed Monday in
The bonds in an account held by Ruth Madoff at COHMAD Securities Corp. and about $17 million held by her in a Wachovia Bank account “are unrelated to the alleged Madoff fraud and only Ruth Madoff has a beneficial interest in these assets,” Bernard Madoff and lawyer said, according to the papers.
The greed of this couple boggles my mind. That money is not yours, it was stolen by all the investors you ripped off. I think Ruth Madoff should consider herself lucky she wasn’t arrested as well.
