An Amishman has come forward anonymously (no longer online) to discuss the Sensenig investment controversy, which we discussed a couple weeks back in “Blog changes, phone booths, and an Old Order Bernie Madoff?

Plain investors may be out most or all of $65 million.  The close ties and inherent trust found in the Old Order circles Sensenig operated within were key to his dubious success.

As the Amishman says, “it was just because he was a Plain Mennonite that he got that much money, that’s the only reason.”
