Bernie Madoff: Politics, remorse and Wall Street

By MJ LEE | 3/20/14 5:01 AM EDT

BUTNER, N.C. – From his office on the 17th floor of midtown Manhattan’s red enameled Lipstick Building, Bernard Madoff often handled billions of dollars in a single day.

These days, at the medium-security prison here, the man convicted of orchestrating the biggest Ponzi scheme in American history is forbidden from possessing even a handful of quarters.

“Inmates are not allowed to handle money,” reads a sign on a vending machine at the medium-security prison, where visitors — but not inmates — can pay $1.25 for a bottle of water just outside a visitation room.

This is one of many rules that Madoff, who is 75, lives by in the eight-by-10-foot cell he shares with another inmate at the federal correctional facility where he is serving a 150-year sentence.
