Madoff's offices a hotbed of sex, if not finance

SEX and romance flourished in the offices of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff even if real investing did not, the US government has revealed.

Among other revelations authorities have disclosed that even the Ponzi king himself was involved in a love triangle with a subordinate now facing trial.

But the government's foray into sharing bedroom secrets was just a tiptoe, as prosecutors refused to get into the details or identities of those involved in the dalliances without the blessing of a federal judge.

Five of Madoff's former employees pleaded not guilty Friday in federal court in Manhattan to the latest indictment in the case. Their trial is due to start October 7.

One defendant was in a love triangle with Madoff, and four of the five defendants were among those involved romantically or sexually, authorities said. The government said even investors got involved.
