A glimpse into Madoff’s prison life


The above clip is an excerpt from a CNBC episode—part of its “American Greed” series on mass swindler Bernard Madoff—that will air for the first time tonight. The Huffington Post has a second clip and offers this teaser:

When Bernie Madoff applied to run the budget of the Butner Prison’s landscaping crew, he didn’t get the job. “Yeah right I’d hire him as a clerk,” remarked the inmate in charge of the crew. “All our money’d be missing!”

Nicknamed “Camp Fluffy” for its commodious environs, Madoff’s prison even features a soundproof music room—and periodic “special treats” like popcorn and cotton candy.

Sentenced to 150 years at the Butner Federal Corrections Complex in North Carolina, Madoff apparently spends his time reading law books, John Grisham, and Dean Koontz—when he’s not working his job in the prison cafeteria.

Popcorn and John Grisham—yes, it really is hard out there for a pimp.
