Madoff Scandal Hits Home



Like you, we've been mostly fascinated by the scale of Bernard Madoff's crimes, leaving the anger for another day. Now, that day has arrived! According to the Chron, the JEHT Foundation, which financed research and legal work on criminal justice, had its assets managed by Madoff. And that means, of course, that it no longer has any assets and will close its doors in the next couple of months. The JEHT Foundation funded such worthy causes as the Boalt Law School death penalty clinic and Berkeley's Center for Investigative Reporting. Too bad there's no hell, Bernie, 'cause we sure would like to see you roasting in it.
