Here is a laugh… do you suppose he ate Twinkies? Or was it a bad, really bad matzoh ball… or a few? hmm?
While Bernard Madoff is being investigated for his alleged $50 billion fraud scheme, a report says he is considering an insanity defense.
“Bernie’s family and his attorneys may argue that, somewhere along the line, he had a mental break,” a Madoff acquaintance told the New York Daily News.
“They may even say he has a multiple personality disorder,” the source added
But, matzoh jokes aside, surely he is on suicide watch?
Meanwhile, Madoff’s family fears that he may follow suit in the footstep’s of Rene-Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet, a Madoff client who slit his wrists last week.
“He has a very low affect. Bernie barely speaks,” the Daily News quoted a source as saying.
Madoff’s attorneys are expected to argue that he committed the fraud during manic and euphoric periods or that he was so delusional that he convinced himself the investment returns were real.
it would be amusing if it were anything but a dodge…
According to Times Online, the federal investigators believe Madoff would not have been able to pull off a fraud of such magnitude without significant international assistance.
That sounds just so sane…
hmm the gregarious boychicks over at Clusterstock don’t seem to have heard of the mental defect defense or the newly acquired affect… at least not as of 2:10 am in the Pacific zone………..
Do you think they have him on quarter hour checks? Hourly bed check…?
Somehow I think not.
