'Pharma Bro' Shkreli sent to jail after offering $5k for Clinton's hair in cloning joke

Convicted fraudster and former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli, once dubbed the "most hated man in America," is headed to jail after having his bail revoked over a Facebook post in which he offered $5,000 for a strand of Hillary Clinton's hair.


In that post, the 34-year-old offered a generous bounty to anyone who could steal a hair from former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton while she was on her book tour.
"The Clinton Foundation is willing to KILL to protect its secrets. So on HRCs book tour, try to grab a hair from her. I must confirm the sequences I have. Will pay $5,000 per hair obtained from Hillary Clinton," the Facebook post stated.

Honestly, I'm surprised THIS is what it took to land him in jail - a Facebook joke. Out of everything else that has been around him, a joke on Facebook is what sent him off. Price gouging, fraudulent activities and probably other things that I may have missed, would have been a priority to send him to jail over some Facebook post. Yeah, I can see the reason that some people could have taken it seriously and attempted it, but I mean let's be real here. I'm sure lying to investors about what you're doing with the money your company earns (fraud) is a much better reason to send someone to jail (he paid bail last time, but still.)

Yeah, I think he should have landed in Jail over the Medicine scandal. Not a joke about the Clintons.
