Unremorseful, unrepentant in Butner

New York magazine pulls together an interesting account in its latest issue of how Bernie Madoff is faring at the federal correctional complex in Butner, N.C.

Through the help of inmates and others who have spoken with the disgraced financier, writer Steve Fishman details how prisoner No. 61727-054 has gained fame on the inside, posed for the prison artist, and offered up his “skills” to try to land a new job:

….initially he’d hoped for a spot on the prison-landscaping crew. He proposed that he serve as the clerk in charge of budget. He had qualifications—he’d been chairman of NASDAQ. “Hell, no,” said the supervisor. “I do my own budget. I know what he did on the outside.”
