We've exhaustively established that anyone in any way related to Bernie Madoff (sons, soon to be daughters in law) must love fish. So it should come as a shock to exactly none of you that Frank DiPascali, with Madoff since 1975 and CFO since 1996, is no exception. Bloombergprofiles the "aide" aide today in an attempt to figure out just what he knew and after a lot of fluff ("street-smart New Yorker," "Catholic high school in Queens," "blue-collar guy, not a Wall Street master of the universe") we get to the money shot:
DiPascali's boat is registered to Dorothy-Jo Sportfishing LLC at his home address, according to BoatInfoWorld.com. Based in Monmouth Beach, New Jersey, its crew reeled in the biggest tuna, a 191-pound bluefin, during a July 2007 fishing tournament, according to the South Jersey Marina in Cape May.
Per the Mid-Atlantic Tuna Tournament archives, DiPascali and his crew won $55,070. You know what's after the jump.
