Six Degrees of Bernard Madoff
Posted on Feb 5, 2009
Not that anyone else who suffered losses at the hands of failed financier Bernard Madoff is any less important, but it turns out that actor Kevin Bacon is one member of the vast network of investors in Madoff’s collapsed company, along with famed pitcher Sandy Koufax.
The Houston Chronicle:
Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax. Actor Kevin Bacon. World Trade Center developer Larry Silverstein.
All three have at least one thing in common: Their names appear on a list of several thousand clients who invested with Bernard Madoff. The list has been made public in a court filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan.
The list emerged late Wednesday, providing a comprehensive look at the sweeping nature of Madoff’s alleged fraud. The 162-page list includes Madoff’s relatives, numerous celebrities, dead people and charitable institutions. Each page carries 84 single-spaced lines. Some customers are listed multiple times, presumably because they had multiple accounts.
Cuddly Bacon: Kevin Bacon in cheerier times.
