Why does Dame Edna’s picture appear in an article about Madoff’s Austrian banking connection?

I was shocked to see a picture of Dame Edna in an article about Bernard L. Madoff’s accomplice who played a key role in the $19.6 Billion Ponzi scheme.  I mean this is the first I have heard of the glorious British Dame and famous socialite/talk show host being involved.

To begin, what evidence do they have that she even knew Madoff.  Did they even move in the same circles?

And who is this Sonja Kohn person . . . and why are they calling Dame Edna by that name?

I think that this is another example of the paparazzi jumping the gun to get a headline without having all the facts.   What do you think . . . is/was Dame Edna involved with Madoff?

Dame Edna?

 

Dame Edna in happier times?

A Happier Dame . . .

    Sounds odd. Where did you hear of this?

    I feel duty bound to correct you; Dame Edna is an Australian Dame, born and raised in the delightful inner suburb of Melbourne, Moonee Ponds.

    Despite that “enormous” slip up, keep up the good work.
