Bernard Madoff did not act alone: Accountant charged

Bernard Madoff apparently had the help of his accountant in pulling off a $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

Accountant David G. Friehling, who ran a two-person accounting firm from at a tiny storefront office in an office park outside of New York City, was charged with securities and investment adviser fraud, according to The New York Times. The paper said he surrendered to authorities this morning.
