It's official, Ruth Madoff has been evicted from the Manhattan penthouse she shared with her husband, Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff. Bernard Madoff spent most of this year in the home under house arrest but now that he's been shipped off for 150 years of hard time, Mrs. Madoff needs to find a new home. Federal marshals formally evicted Mrs. Madoff on Wednesday amid a flurry of press. The NY Daily News reports that Ruth Madoff was home when about the marshals showed up at at 133 E. 64th Street to change the looks. She was not allowed to take anything from the co-op she had purchased in 1979. Even the sheets were left behind. The marshals are inventorying the Madoff possessions right down to the last bibelot in preparation for a future auction to raise funds to benefit those who lost their money in Bernie Madoff's scheme. Mrs. Madoff plans to live with relatives in the New York City area.
