Well folks, there goes the neighborhood.
Disgraced financier Bernard Madoff arrived by bus Tuesday morning at the federal prison in Butner, where authorities have said he will serve his 150-year sentence for fraud.
Madoff was transferred Monday from a holding cell in New York to Atlanta, where he left Tuesday morning. He arrived at the Federal Correctional Complex in Butner around 11 a.m.
“He has got to serve his time somewhere, so I reckon why not Butner?”
Frankly, I won’t be excited until he has company and when that happens I’m sure Butner will role out the red carpet.
Bush, Cheney and other co-horts to follow
The insulting thing about Madoff coming to Butner, Inmate # 61727-054 didn’t want to come here. And why not you maybe asking? Well believe it or not
Butner wasn’t Madoff’s 1st choice because we aren’t cushy enough. He wanted to be in Otisville, which is 70 miles away from NYC and Mrs. Madoff. (And you thought Butner was in BFE
.) Butner may not be the cushiest pen but we are the greeniest
, ah it’s the little things. But seriously, Otisville
is the place to be if you are a old balding, Republican ex-financier, Good times!
What’s in store for Madoff in Butner once he finishes his orientation? I turn to Chris Rock for the answer and I hope he’s right, hint: answer includes maple syrup and grape jelly. (Disclaimer: Video contains language you would hear in a prison, it’s not for kiddies, the easily offended or people who can’t take a joke! You should us your imagination.)
We are talking about punishment right?
