Oh, Brother: Bernie Madoff’s Latest Victim Is His Sister


Nice place, right? It’s in the Ballen Isles Country Club, the gated Palm Beach community where Serena and Venus Williams and Bernie Madoff’s sister, Sondra Wiener, 74, live. Or, Sondra used to live there. Since she lost $3 million to her own brother’s scam and the Feds confiscated her Hanukkah presents, she had to put the place on the market. The three-bedroom home, which comes with a pool, a spa, the “best water view with sunsets every evening,” and a soupçon of really bad vibes, is listed for around $850,000. At that kind of price, you’d think they’d remove the giant turtle by the pool, too. [NYP]
