Ruth Madoff made off with $10 million just before her beloved husband was handcuffed. I’ve assumed all along that the lady was in this up to her neck and this doesn’t change my opinion. But where’s the money now and did any of it end up in a fly fishing camp somewhere in Patagonia? I suggested before that one of the Madoff boys purchase Leona’s place on Round Hill for its proximity to Mom Madoff’s next living space in Bedford Hills Women’s prison, and now they may have the down payment for doing just that. Happy news for everyone, especially Trouble and her guardian. Seems that Trouble has been upset by the lengthy delay in selling the place and getting her paws on that cash and she’s resumed biting people, poor thing.
Update: A careful reading shows that Ruth grabbed $15.5 million before the balloon went up. The Helmsley place gets ever closer!
