Madoff to Get Reduced Sentence in Exchange for Posing as George Washington on New Dollar Bill

madoff-bill1NEW YORK – In a courtroom surprise, it was revealed Tuesday that Bernard Madoff will get a reduced sentence when he pleads guilty Thursday to securities fraud, perjury and other crimes, in exchange for posing as George Washington on the Treasury Department’s new dollar bill.  The new currency will make debut this fall.

Madoff issued a statement explaining the unusual arrangement: “I am pleased to pose as the father of our country on the new dollar bill, and am even more pleased that every time one of the investors I defrauded pulls out a dollar bill, they will see me. That is, if they have a dollar bill.”
