How many will remember that for every greedy slime.ball like Madoff and company there are 1000 who contribute to research, charity, grants, and contributions to small business.

Seems everyone wants to believe NO ONE WITH MONEY IS WORTH LIVING.

Because of what they've fostered in the liberal battlecry for equal distribution of everyone's hard earned incomes...she should be left living hand to mouth and wondering where she'll get the money to visit a specialist AND buy food in the same month.Reply to this comment by jumkey June 28, 2009 1:01 PM PDT Hey stupid...this is stolen money.

But I await your impassioned plea to allow armed robbers to keep their proceeds to they won't have to live hand to mouth.She is the poster child for white collar crime - the signature crime of the corrupt Republican.Sorry if it escaped your notice but no one is disputing that Madoff stole this money.

That you defend this admittedly criminal behavior is textbook conservative Republican selective morality.If capitalism dies it will be because it shot itself in the head with by June 28, 2009 5:11 PM PDT The ultra-wealthy ride the backs of hardworking citizens while helping to make laws that enable them to keep their wealth tax-free.

One day their walls won't be tall enough.

Humanity is a constant cycle of repression and revolution.

You have alot to learn about the essence of life.

It is not the dollar.

by rudya0 June 28, 2009 9:58 AM PDT Ruth Madoff was Bernie's bookkeeper.

There is no way she [and her kids] did not know of the fraud that was going on.

Let me see, I rob a bank and get to keep $2.5 million.

This $2.5 million is in ADDITION to the jewels she was mailing out earlier as the story was breaking.

Would I get away with that? She gets to keep ONLY $2.5 million? I would bet every reader here would love to have ONLY $2.5 million as a nest egg.

Who says that crime does not pay? Why have the prosecutors allowed this injustice to happen? She should forfeit everything and get a job just like the rest of the working class she and her husband ripped off.

This is where the problem comes in: people like her with silver spoons in their mouths do not have the skill sets necessary to survive in the real world.

They are only good at manipulating and changing money that OTHERS have earned.

These people are parasites on the system that place themselves in close proximity to productive earner's savings, and then find ways to skim off larger and larger amounts for themselves either in [legal, but immoral] bonuses, or through fraud as in this case.

It would be very interesting to see what hourly wage her skill sets would bring on the "free market" if she were forced to work for a living.Reply to this comment by rudya0 June 28, 2009 9:58 AM PDT Ruth Madoff was Bernie's bookkeeper.

She probably has someone wipe her arse because doing it herself is below her.Reply to this comment by riob678 June 28, 2009 12:48 PM PDT As fast as Ruthie goes through money, it won't be very long until we hear her as about the fries.

by June 28, 2009 10:33 AM PDT Madoff should not be sent to prison.

He should be made to work at a minimum wage job at minimum wage for the rest of his life.

He should have to live in housing he can afford on his minimum wage and eat only the food he can afford on minimum wage.

He shoul dbe tethered and have a security pfficer guarding him 24/7 to make sure he complies with the terms of his punishment.

All visits from his wife can only be at his residence and refreshments must be what he pays for on his wages.

Officers will check any visitors to make sure he recieves no help.

Making him live as one of the poor in this country will be a better punichment than letting him have good food and possibly get over while in prison or be treated as a hero in prison for screwing the man at his own game.Reply to this comment by demotwit_n June 28, 2009 12:28 PM PDT 'Why does she get to keep 2.5 million?' Because her gender is female.

Put the shoe on the other foot of gender ''equality''.

If Ruth was the Ponzi scheme perpetrator, and Bernard was the ''oblivious'' spouse along for the ride, he would not get one - red - cent.Reply to this comment by pvperson3 June 28, 2009 12:29 PM PDT Why isn't this thief in jail?Reply to this comment by vuenbelvue June 28, 2009 1:29 PM PDT Another example of justice taking care of the elite.

The sons put the Miami estates in their wives names who immediately paid the lawyers to have the real estate Homesteaded.

Under Florida law, creditors cannot touch it.

That is how OJ Simpson kept the Florida house.

I agree with the comments above.

Everyone, everyone in that immediate family knew this was a scam.

Now everyone but the court system knows everyone in the family knew it was a scam.

The South Carolina Governor is now the newest in line unable to understand that he was morally, ethically and most likely illegal in his 8 year affair with a Argentine tripe.

How many South Carolina tax dollars were spent for flights, hotels, entertainment, fuel, flowers, clothes, jewelry and staff over 8 years to hide and promote his side line love affair.

The govenor and the party elite want to hang on to the seat just like the judge in the Mrs.

Madoff case wants to ignore her guilt.Reply to this comment by 850Rick June 28, 2009 1:35 PM PDT She should lose everything too.

She knew full well about his doings and benefited from them.

She should go to jail too.Reply to this comment by ArmandB June 28, 2009 1:52 PM PDT She should be in a cell along with the rest of the family that worked with them.

They all had to know that they weren't buying stocks but were collecting billions.Reply to this comment by babooph June 28, 2009 2:10 PM PDT She claimed 90 million,so is she keeping 10 so she will not be broke,like so many they swindled-is this hush $ for not exposing the political big shots in on the scam ?Reply to this comment by scabbard2 June 28, 2009 2:20 PM PDT What about the taxes?? Who is paying the taxes??Reply to this comment by hush_puppy June 28, 2009 2:50 PM PDT She should be sent to Iraq and be allowed to service all the troops before she gets her 2.5 mil.Reply to this comment by cbsblogger June 28, 2009 2:51 PM PDT This is outrageous that she gets to keep a dime let alone 2.5 Million.

Her family business has been a sham and a scam.

Send her back to work as others, who have been suckered by her family, have had to do.Reply to this comment by airboatboy June 28, 2009 2:56 PM PDT You don't think that ***** has money stashed from years Bernie's scam?Reply to this comment by June 28, 2009 6:16 PM PDT We all agree, Madoff is SUPER SLEAZE.

But what's with the "hey stupid","moron", and other stuff on here aimed at people who share a comment oropinion.

I like the idea of Madoff having to work and live on minimum wagethe rest of his life.

The ACLU would probably get the sentence thrown out.My second favorite idea would be to send him to Singapore or China, with arequest to "rehabilitate" him.

That would be a hoot.

I'm sure that theycould come up with a creative consequence.Reply to this comment See all 20 Comments Add a comment Comment SUBMIT Click here to add another comment.
