Sheryl Weinstein is a whore. And she doesn’t care if the whole world knows it.
That’s why she authored a tell-all book about her adulterous affair with convicted felon Bernie Madoff, who was sentenced this past spring to 150 years in prison for defrauding investors of some $65 billion. That’s why she went on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to confirm that the man she now describes as a “beast” was “a good kisser.”
Weinstein, who met Madoff, the beast, more than two decades ago while working for the Jewish charity Hadassah, is no doubt familiar with the Jewish scriptures.
Perhaps she should reread the Psalms, which lament: “O God, You know my foolishness; and my sins are not hidden from you… Because for Your sake I have borne reproach; shame has covered my face.”
Weinstein apparently is without shame. Otherwise she would not have subjected her husband of 37 years to the insult of a kiss-and-tell book to the injury of her nearly two-year sex affair with “Mr. Winky Dinky” – her pet name for Madoff.
Weinstein justifies her shamelessness on grounds that she somehow is getting back at the felonious Madoff. “He shouldn’t have stolen money from somebody you have a relationship with,” she explained.
In other words, if Bernie the beast hadn’t had sex with Weinstein, it would have been okay that he stole the money she and her cuckolded husband entrusted to him. But, since they were having an adulterous affair, she felt especially betrayed.
From my vantage point, Weinstein almost is on a par with Madoff on the morality scale. Yes, he defrauded hundreds of unwitting investors out of billions of dollars. But who knows what she might have been capable of if she had a similar opportunity?
After all, at Madoff’s sentencing earlier this summer, when she first declared him a “beast,” Weinstein denied that their relationship had been anything other than professional.
Not long afterward, when St. Martin’s Press came calling with a reported multimillion-dollar book offer, Weinstein put out like a latter day Jezebel, suddenly remembering her not-so-professional sexual trysts with Bernie the beast.
Sheryl Weinstein is anything but a sympathetic figure. Like any other shameless adulteress, she should be shunned.
