Court papers claim Bernie Madoff's Securities offices were fueled by cocaine, topless women

Bernard Madoff is serving a term of 150 years in prison for his Ponzi scheme.Bernie Madoff, cocaine kingpin?

New additions to a lawsuit against the jailed Ponzi schemer charge that he presided over an office so fueled by the drug that it was known as the "North Pole."

The suit, filed Tuesday night in Manhattan Supreme Court, alleges that Madoff, as far back as 1975, used two street toughs on his payroll to set up a cocaine pipeline into the offices of Madoff Securities.

It portrays the firm's headquarters as an animal house with "a culture of sexual deviance" that often hosted drug-fueled parties featuring topless waitresses who wore little more than G-strings.

The suit also points out that Madoff now spends his days in the company of other noted jailbirds, including former Colombo crime family boss Carmine Persico and Naval intelligence anaylyst-turned-spy Jonathan Pollard.
He's also surrounded by plenty of lesser-known crooks, the suit notes.
"Most of his fellow inmates are in prison for drug crimes or sex crimes and Madoff will spend the rest of his life in prison with them," the suit says.
It also casts Madoff as a frequent patron of escort services and massage parlors who kept a list of his preferred female masseuses in his personal phone book.
