My Husband Stole $50 Bn., and...

...all I got was $15 Million

What a T-shirt, eh?

AP reports:

A Massachusetts state official says the wife of disgraced money manager Bernard Madoff withdrew $15 million from a firm co-owned by her husband - including $10 million on the day before his arrest.

Secretary of State William Galvin says Ruth Madoff withdrew the money in two steps from Cohmad Securities Corp., which is co-owned by Madoff.

For $15million, it could be a pure angora T-shirt, I suppose, with gold pinstripes.

$15 mill would be MORE than enough for us to take care of several people, give a hearty donation to our parish/parish school, and set us up for the rest of our lives.

Why do I get the feeling this won't be the case with Mrs. Madoff? And how about repaying some of Madoff's victims?

I'm quite sure this was entirely coincidental and Mrs. Madoff had no clue about what Bernie was up to all these years. She was just minding the house while Bernie balanced the checkbook. And she had groceries to buy that day...

Yep, I'm sure that was it. Nothing to see here...move along.
