Liberal financier, philanthropist, and embezzler extraordinaire Bernard Madoff remains out of jail and living in the lap of luxury despite the enormity of the crimes he has been accused of. Even displaying contempt for the court and his victims by distributing $1 million in jewelry to family and friends failed to get Madoff’s bail revoked. Truly amazing.
I wrote about Madoff’s misdeeds in the American Spectator. Apparently singlehandedly Madoff, through his Social Security-like Ponzi scheme, sunk the left-wing funders Picower Foundation and the JEHT Foundation.
