32.6 - Good News: Martin Shkreli in jail

Good News: Martin Shkreli in jail

Oh, one other bit of Good News, although I might more describe this as "satisfying news."

smirking prig Martin Shkreli
Smirking prig Martin Shkreli, who became famous for buying the rights to a life-saving medication then jacking up the price 5000%, had been free on bail while awaiting sentencing on a charge of securities fraud.

On Twitter, he offered $5000 for a sample of Hillary Clinton's hair, supposedly to "match sequences" related to a claim that the Clinton Foundation is "willing to kill to protect its secrets."

US District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto was unamused by this supposed "satire" and revoked Shkreli's bail. He's in prison now.

And yeah, that is at least satisfying news.
