George Mitchell still likes Fred Bourke

Three weeks into the trial, the government has yet to lay a glove on Mr. Bourke. Today, former Senator Mitchell did that Sergent Schultz thing he does so well (“I know nuttin!”)  From what little coverage I can find of this trial on the web, not a single witness has said anything that links Bourke to the bribes paid to Azerbaijan officials. They had better have something to offer, or Mr. Bourke might wonder why they have tied up his life and cost him millions (? a lot, anyway) in legal fees. I love a Greenwich scandal even more than most residents but the only scandal I’ve seen here is a waste of taxpayer money and the harassment of an innocent man.

But the trial’s not over, so we’ll check in from time to time to see what’s happening.

Mark and Andy Madoff – fishing fools or dad’s willing accomplices?

The general supposition among Madoff scandal fans has been that Mark and Andy, Bernie Madoff’s sons, were too busy fishing and playing kissy kissy with beautiful women to trouble their dura matter with deep questions like the meaning of life or the source of dad’s money. Now two ex-Madoff traders have sued the kids, alleging that they were in on the scam. Truth or fiction? We don’t know, but the fact that they’ve signed up Ric Bourke and Walter Noel as character witnesses suggests that their homes on Tomac and Cherry Valley may soon be on the market.
