Madoff scam fallout

Among the victims of the Madoff Ponzi scheme (as opposed to the Social Security Ponzi scheme, which victimizes all of us) is the JEHT Foundation, which supports human rights groups and criminal justice reform. And among the human rights groups supported by JEHT is the Innocence Project, which helps to free wrongly convicted prisoners.

The JEHT Foundation will apparently be closing its doors. But the Innocence Project plans to keep its doors open through the support of other donors (including you, if you go here). That's welcome news, since the group would be much missed were it to go under.
