    WSJ: Madoff beaten up by fellow inmate in dispute over money -

    Financial swindler Bernard Madoff was beaten up in December by an inmate at his North Carolina Prison in an apparent dispute over money, The Wall Street Journal reports.

    The Journal, which based its report on three people familiar with the matter, said the 71-year old Madoff was treated for a broken nose, fractured ribs and cuts to his head and face.

    The alleged assailant, described by the newspaper as a "beefy man," was serving time at the federal prison in Butner, N.C., on drug charges.

    He deserves to be in prison...but does not deserve to be assaulted.

    It's appropriately in "Current Events" and has been all over the news this morning. What's your problem? The story is a helluva lot more interesting than some of the stuff posted here.

    It is a reality check for those who thought Madoff would be shipped off to some cushy "Club Fed"
