While all the political and economical scandals were unfolding last year, I innocently asked one of my politically interested friends why it seemed like men were always mixed up in these things. He went on for a while about how the ratio of men and women makes it more likely that a man will commit a crime and how women have it so much harder in both politics and business. He also pointed out that even a small set back would probably cost a woman more than a man and those who finally do reach the top are those who have managed to keep a clean record. And I have to say, I did – and still do – agree with his points. But now, I’ve finally gotten the article I’ve been waiting for: a female embezzler.

My new question is how many shoes did Bernie Madoff buy with his money.
