Madoff Sucker List Released
Bernie Madoff's liquidators have released a list of his official victims, which the Post obligingly makes public as a large pdf file. Look for your friends! Interestingly, a few people who'd previously told us they were Madoff victims don't appear on it. But Mets owner Fred Wilpon, and his company Sterling Equities, appear hundreds of times (once as "Sterling Equities Employees Retirement Plan) -- guess he and his friends got bit good. So did Frank Mantovani. And wait, is it that Howard Stern? Guess not. Other piquant names: American Committee for Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem, Inc; Madoff accountants Paul Konigsberg and Sosnick Bell; Brandeis University; John Malkovich (of Westport, Connecticut!); Empire State Carpenters Pension Fund; the Judaic Heritage Foundation; St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale; West Villagers Ted Story and Cynthia Crane; and loads of Madoffs. Lots of funds, estates, family trusts, foundations, etc. No wonder the schnook is wearing a bullet-proof vest.
