Revenge

Madoff’s House Toilet-Papered

With an ankle-braceleted Madoff cooped up in his Park Avenue pad, the Ponzi schemer’s Palm Beach home has been ripe for pranking. First came the theft of a $10,000 bronze yard sculpture from the property (it was replaced by a note: “Bernie the Swindler, Lesson: Return Stolen Property to rightful owners. Signed by—The Educators”). Now comes word of trust-funder revenge: A group of teenage boys toilet-papered the house, then called The Palm Beach Post to claim credit for the stunt, which they said their parents sanctioned. The boys said they lost their trust funds to Madoff and had papered his house in retaliation.
