Kenneth Langone, a former New York Stock Exchange director and Home Depot co-founder, said he steered clear of accused swindler Bernard Madoff after getting a smooth sales pitch from the legendary investment manager. On November 24, a little more than two weeks before Madoff was arrested, Langone visited Madoff at his Manhattan offices to learn about a new fund, Langone said on CNBC's "Kudlow & Co" program Wednesday. Madoff was gracious and charming, Langone said, but his pitch left Langone feeling uneasy. "I had been told by three or four different people he was going to start a new fund, so we agreed to go see him," Langone recalled. "And I've got to tell you, I wouldn't want to play poker with this guy. He'd clean my clock like you wouldn't believe."
