Shkreli Jailed As Threat to Clinton

“Martin Shkreli, the former pharmaceutical executive who is awaiting sentencing for a fraud conviction, was sent to jail on Wednesday after a federal judge found that he presented a threat to the community because he had offered money for a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair,” the New York Times reports.

“Mr. Shkreli, who was free on $5 million bail while he awaited sentencing, offered $5,000 on Facebook to anyone who could ‘grab a hair’ from Mrs. Clinton during her book tour.”

Smirking Drug CEO Antagonizes Lawmakers

Embattled drug executive Martin Shkreli antagonized lawmakers “by smirking and posing for pictures during his first appearance on Capitol Hill even as he refused to answer questions about drug prices,” The Hill reports.

Within minutes of being escorted out of the hearing, Shkreli tweeted: “Hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government.”

The video is extraordinary.
