Why didn't the SEC catch Bernie Madoff's humongous decades-long superscam earlier? Because they were too dazzled with his fancy offices, allegedly. You can see why!

Page Six quotes a new Andrew Kirtzman book about Madoff as saying, hey, the SEC, they just sent young kids to try to regulate the master! And furthermore:

"The youthful SEC staffers were so dazzled to be at Madoff headquarters that they occasionally inquired about job openings at the company," Kirtzman writes.

Well, sure. I mean, the walls curved. Understandable.
