Madoff accountant waives indictment, may plead guilty

Apparently the MSU method of accounting isn’t always the best of ideas after all

Madoff’s accountant, David Friehling, will probably plead guilty to various charges of Making Sh*t Up due to his fantasy audits of Madoff’s businesses. Prosecutors aren’t saying that he knew about the Ponzi scheme, but rather that he did virtually nothing but “rubber-stamp statements he didn’t verify.” He got paid, as I recall, $150,00 a year, which is comparative chump change.

Madoff played him like a violin, didn’t he? Chump. But now it seems he’ll be singing like a birdie.
