According to her lawyer, yes! It's like this, see. If Ruth had no idea that her husband was getting HJ's on the reg, ass-cuppage on the reg, and just skanks in general on the reg, it's probably indication that she had no idea about his screwing investors on the reg, as opposed to the theory that he told her everything.
Ruth Madoff, who has been married to Mr. Madoff for almost 50 years, knew nothing about the "alleged affair," said Peter Chavkin, her lawyer. While that, unfortunately, will not ease the pain of the people destroyed by the Madoff fraud, he continued, the allegation "stands as a powerful reminder, to those who say Ruth must have known of her husband's criminal scheme, that there are some things that some spouses -- however close they are -- do not share with each other."
