59. You keep going on about these investigations into Mark Madoff, yet are either unwilling
or unable to submit any proof of them.

So if Madoff's secretary is sitting on retirement funds or real estate purchased with income from the business s/he shouldn't be required to return them? Just want to understand where you are coming from. Right now you seem to be saying that it's OK for middle/low income people to profit unknowingly from illegal activity, but not rich people.

ONCE AGAIN, it might turn out that Mark Madoff was knowingly involved in his father's crimes. But right now that is not something that has been proven.
