Madoff’s Attorney Reminisces About the Day He Got ‘the Call’


And I’m sitting in class and these children, two-and-a-half-year-olds, are standing around, pretending that they’re on a farm,” Sorkin said. “And the teacher is asking, ‘what sounds do you hear on a farm?’ Like a cow, moo-moo, and a duck, quack-quack. And I’m hearing all these animal sounds, and all the kids laughing and applauding, and my cell phone rings. And it’s Bernie Madoff. And he tells me that he’s been arrested by the FBI. He’s handcuffed to a chair. He needs my help. And in the background, I’m hearing, ‘moo-moo, quack-quack, oink-oink,’ and I ran out of the class.” [CNBC]
