Madoff Bragged That He Gave Away $9B To Friends Before Being Arrested

The NY Post says that a fellow inmate of Bernie Madoff told them that the ponzi-schemer bragged about giving away $9 billion to three people before he was caught.

“I think it was personal friends,” the inmate told the Post.

From the NYPost:

Madoff says that his partner in crime Frank DiPascali knows who the recipients are — and that he suspects DiPascali is using that information to cut a better deal with the feds, according to the inmate at the medium-security prison in Butner, NC.

There’s no way to know if any of this is true, of course, but we believe it because we like this show.
