Madoff’s Secretary Out On Bail

After spending New Year’s in jail, Bernie Madoff’s assistant Annette Bongiorno is home on bail, wearing an ankle monitor and missing $7.6 million the Feds got from her bank accounts. Allan Dodds Frank reports.

By the time 62-year-old Annette Bongiorno faced reporters hanging around federal court in Manhattan Friday, she said she was ready for a shower and a warm glass of “real whole milk,” not the skim milk she has been fed since being jailed in West Palm Beach, Florida Dec. 21 for failure to post $5 million bail.

Looking even smaller than the 4 foot 10 inches, 135 pounds she is officially listed as on prison intake sheets, Bongiorno said she had been scared since leaving her $1.3 million Boca Raton, Florida, home for a series of holding cells en route to New York.
