The “Pharma Bro” May Be Headed Back to Jail for Threatening Hillary Clinton

Infamous pharma bro Martin Shkreli was recently convicted of securities fraud but he posted $5 million in bail after he was initially arrested and he's been waiting to be sentenced from the comfort of his own home.

Prosecutors are asking a judge to revoke his bail because he asked his followers on social media to assault Hillary Clinton.

“Shkreli has engaged in an escalating pattern of threats and harassment that warrant his detention pending sentencing,” prosecutors said in a filing in Brooklyn federal court late on Thursday.

They pointed to a Sept. 4 Facebook post in which Shkreli offered $5,000 to followers who could grab a strand of Clinton’s hair during the former presidential candidate’s upcoming book tour. That led the Secret Service, charged with protecting Clinton, to contact him.

Shrekli eventually deleted the post, but not before millions of people saw it and not before he was contacted by the Secret Service. This is far from the first time he has coordinated a harassment campaign against a woman. They don't call him "bro" for no reason.

    We already knew Martin Shkreli is a common criminal—fraud and conspiracy aren’t exactly glamorous crimes—and we knew he is a Donald Trump fanboy. We even knew he’s a creepy little man who actually managed to get himself banned for life from Twitter (Twitter, I ask you).

    Now we know he’s also a misogynist who fantasizes about (someone else) assaulting Hillary Clinton; whether he bothered to think about the consequences any chucklehead who might try to pull out Clinton’s hair would face (the Secret Service is famously unamused by such antics toward a protectee) is an open question.

    What a tedious little man. I hope his bail is revoked.

    WTF did she do to him?

    • Nefercat

      She’s a she? I am pretty sure that would be enough for that slimebucket. Or she might have said something during the campaign against profiteering at the expense of people’s lives.

      She was a woman who dared to run for President of the United States of America. Something that would cause extremes on both side to throw up in their mouths, for which Shkreli would comfortably fit at home with.

    I’ll pay $5,000 to any follower who punches this guy in the balls.

    • gescove

      Better ask they punch him in the throat. Might be tough to find any balls on this douchebag.

    • Victor the Crab

      Save your money. There’s no limit of people who are willing to relentlessly beat the shit and snot out of this despicable excuse of a being for free.

      Now Dread, was it not you who once lectured me about encouraging violence?

      • Dread_Pirate_Mathius

        Well.. yes..

        Consider me duly chastised.

      Sir, I’m with the Secret Service. I’d like to have a conversation with you about your post.

      I don’t want to get my bare hand anywhere near his balls. If I kick him really hard, can I get the five grand?
