Disgraced financier Bernie Madoff is sick and tired of living under house arrest in his $7 million penthouse on Park Avenue, the New York Post is reporting.
Madoff, who is accused of bilking investors of $50 billion, complains that he’s a prisoner in his own home and he can’t go anywhere in New York.
Of course, he made that complaint while riding a golf cart from his bathroom to his sunroom. So he still gets around.
I knew this would happen. I knew he would get bored at home. That’s one reason I said he should await trial in jail. He’d meet lots of interesting, new people. There would always be something to do — or run from. He’d get lots of exercise and might even learn a new skill or two. It wouldn’t have been dull.
There’s a limit to what you can do in a $7 million penthouse on Park Avenue. And I’d like to find out what that limit is. Personally.
