Madoff gives first prison interview

Posted By on Wed, Jul 29, 2009 at 11:22 AM

This morning The Daily Beast is reporting that Bernie Madoff looked buff in his first interview from his new home: a federal prison in Butner, N.C. Of course, the interviewees report they had to threaten his wife, Ruth, to get him to agree to sit down with them.

Madoff agreed to sit down with the pair after they threatened to sue his wife, Ruth Madoff: "He cares about Ruth," Cotchett said. "But he doesn't give a [expletive] about his two sons, Mark and Andrew," whom Cotchett also threatened to sue. According to the lawyer, Madoff was "very articulate, very direct" and spoke openly without holding back.
