I met Harry several times — a quiet, studious guy. Very serious. The sort of guy you want doing your taxes.
That he discovered the Madoff fraud isn’t very surprising; That he could not get anyone to listen is amazing.
How long did it take to uncover and expose a $40 billion crook? Ten years.
Even though Markopolos said he knew in five minutes that Madoff was a fraud, no one in the government had a clue, they just couldn’t figure it out? Well, it certainly is a better defense to feign incompetence than admit culpability, isn’t it?
Of course someone was paid off. Probably lots of them.
