Martin Shkreli imprisoned for being mean to Hillary Clinton

“A judge jailed former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli on Wednesday after [pretending] that he violated his bail on a securities fraud conviction with a social media posting she [pretended] posed a threat to Hillary Clinton. Defense attorneys had argued at a hearing in federal court in Brooklyn that the post by Shkreli, offering a $5,000 bounty to anyone who could grab him one of Clinton’s hairs while she’s on a book tour, was political satire. But U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto didn’t see the humor, saying the offer could be taken seriously by fellow Clinton detractors. The Clinton offer could be viewed [by a complete idiot] as ‘a solicitation of an assault,’ the judge said before revoking Shkreli’s $5 million bail.” (09/13/17)
