Bernie's Not Alone

In the wake of Bernard Madoff's sentencing yesterday, the AP reports that federal authorities have begun an investigation into ten of Madoff's associates. Up until now, only two people have faced criminal charges -- Madoff himself, and an accountant, David G. Friehling, who is accused of aiding in the fraud. There are no details on who the ten are, but it appears the circle of blame for the massive Ponzi scheme is about to get wider.
