Berine Madoff is the epitome of scuzzbucket. The guy who was sentenced to 150 years in prison for scamming people out of hundreds of millions of dollars is still talking sh*t:
According to a lengthy new piece by Steve Fishman in New York magazine, Madoff, who apparently pals around with a former mob boss and a spy in a federal prison in Butner, North Carolina told a fellow inmante, “F— my victims. I carried them for twenty years, and now I’m doing 150 years.”
Madoff, whose con artist bona fides seems to have turned some fellow inmates into “groupies,” even indicated to other prisoners that some of his victims actually deserved to have their money taken from them. Overall, Madoff comes off as cocksure, unrepentant and a bit miffed at the world. Here’s New York magazine:
He was past apologizing. In prison, he crafted his own version of events. From MCC, Madoff explained the trap he was in. “People just kept throwing money at me,” Madoff related to a prison consultant who advised him on how to endure prison life. “Some guy wanted to invest, and if I said no, the guy said, ‘What, I’m not good enough?’ ” One day, Shannon Hay, a drug dealer who lived in the same unit in Butner as Madoff, asked about his crimes. “He told me his side. He took money off of people who were rich and greedy and wanted more,” says Hay, who was released in December. People, in other words, who deserved it.
What a stand-up guy. SMH.
