Madoff Mistress Writes Tell-All

Just when you think you’ve heard the end of Ponzi scheming financial slime bucket Bernie Madoff, another shoe drops.

This time, the dirt is being dealt by Sheryl Weinstein, a woman who not only claims she had a 20 year affair with the Ponzi jailbird, she’s written a book about it. Madoff's Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie, and Me is due out later this month from St. Martin’s Press. From the Macmillan Web site:
Bernie Madoff has struck a deep chord in the American psyche. This well-coiffed, impeccably groomed, affable, yet sinister man has come to symbolize the entire financial sector for the countless Americans whose net worth has plummeted and whose jobs are either lost or in danger due to the continuing recession and tight credit.

Sheryl Weinstein, former CFO of Hadassah, controller of Lincoln Center, and graduate of the Wharton School of Business has seen Madoff up close for more than twenty years, as she reveals in Madoff’s Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie and Me.
“Up close” seems a dangerous euphemism here. I love, for instance, the title CBC News adopted for their piece on the book: “Madoff Screwed Charity Then Slept with CFO, Says Book.” Kinda says it all, doesn’t it? ‘Nuff said.
