Martin Shkreli raffling chance to punch him in face

NEW YORK — Embattled pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli is giving some people what they want — a chance to punch him in the face.
Shkreli came under fire last year for jacking up the price of a lifesaving malaria medication 5,000%. He has also pleaded not guilty to federal charges of defrauding potential investors.
Shkreli said on Twitter this week that he would offer the chance to hit him to the highest bidder on eBay. After the eBay listing was removed, he said those donating to a fundraiser would be entered into a raffle to punch him. Shkreli says he’s also open to getting dinner with the winner instead.
Shkreli says the money raised will go to the son of his PR consultant, Mike Kulich, who died following a battle with cancer.

It's nice to see that he was able to take the time off from helping to run the Trump campaign to do this fine charity gig.

For the past week, a pharmaceutical company called Mylan has been making headlines as the latest example of corporate greed gone amok. It’s a similar story to that of Martin Shkreli, who hiked the price of the AIDS drug Daraprim 5,556 percent, from $13.5 to $750 per tablet. In the case of Mylan, they’ve been under fire for raising the price of the EpiPen, on which they have a monopoly, 400% over a relatively short period of time. Since acquiring the drug from Merck in 2008, Mylan has increased its price from $100 to as much as $600.

Via Hannity:

We’ve learned that the company responsible for the increase, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, is a Clinton Foundation donor helmed by the daughter of a Democratic Senator.

The CEO of Mylan is Heather Bresch, daughter of West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. Mylan CEO Bresch reportedly earned a salary of close to $19 million in 2015, an increase in 671% over the same period in which the EpiPen rose in price.

“[I]t’s just the latest troubling example of a company taking advantage of its consumers,” she said in a statement. “It’s wrong when drug companies put profits ahead of patients, raising prices without justifying the value behind them....
...Clinton went on to reiterate her position that drug price hikes should be linked with better patient outcomes and demonstrated improvements in value, and demanded that Mylan “immediately reduce the price of EpiPens.” ”

'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli releases clips from Wu Tang Clan album after Trump win

Taking swigs from a can of cherry coke and with a smirk on his face, Martin Shkreli kept his word to release snippets from the $2 million Wu Tang Clan album he won at auction.
The former pharmaceutical executive tweeted last month that if Donald Trump won the presidency he would share songs from Wu Tang's Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, the only copy of the album made for sale.
The so-called 'Pharma Bro' Shkreli , known for increasing the price of an HIV medication in 2015 by 5,000%, streamed the intro and one song from the album early Wednesday morning as polls closed throughout the U.S. showing a Trump victory.
Shkreli also reached out to celebrities and other Americans who said they'd move to Canada after a Trump win, saying he'd offer them his private jet.
The Periscope clips - while low in quality - can be found on YouTube. Shkreli also said on Twitter he has unreleased music from Prince, the Ramones and 2Pac in his possession.

Kids trump Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli with $2 pill

Wildly disliked so-called Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli is scoffing at a group of high school students who recreated his $750 life-saving drug for just $2.

“Glad the kids are learning about science,” Shkreli tweeted. “Not sure how anyone got ‘owned’ lol.”

Shkreli — called the “most hated man in the world” after hiking the price of anti-parasitic drug Daraprim from $13 to $750 – was his typical despicable self, the New York Post reports.

Eleven chemistry students from a Sydney, Australia school - with help from a university professor - recreated the pill as a project, but Shkreli called it easy.

He tweeted: “Anyone can make any drug. lol how is that showing anyone up?”

“Almost any drug can be made at small scale for a low price. Glad it makes u feel good tho.”

He added: “Congratulations on a crash course in organic chemistry and good luck with FDA approval.”

And then the so-called Pharma Bro lashed out at commenters, reporters and anyone else who questioned his wonderfulness.

The students shared the public’s outrage at Shkreli’s shameless antics, their professor said.

CVS is now selling a rival, generic version of Mylan's EpiPen at about a sixth of its price, just months after the maker of the life-saving allergy treatment was eviscerated before Congress because of its soaring cost to consumers.

The drugstore chain says it will charge $109.99 for a two-pack of the authorized generic version of Adrenaclick, a lesser-known treatment compared to EpiPen, which can cost more than $600.

Meridian Medical Technologies, makers of Mylan’s EpiPen injector, issued a nationwide, voluntary recall of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr.

According to the company, some of the devices may have a defective part that does not allow for the activation of the injector in case of allergic reaction.

“While the number of reported failures is small, EpiPen products that potentially contain a defective part are being recalled because of the potential for life-threatening risk if a severe allergic reaction goes untreated,” the company said in a statement.

The recall affects 13 lots of EpiPen and EpiPen Jr. devices distributed between Dec. 17, 2015, and July 1, 2016. Mylan will replacing any of the affected devices free of charge.

Mylan advised consumers to keep and use their current EpiPens if needed until they get a replacement. Consumers should contact Mylan at 800-796-9526 or customer.service@mylan.com with any questions.

'Pharma Bro' Shkreli convicted at securities fraud trial
Tom Hays, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
First posted: Friday, August 04, 2017 03:23 PM EDT | Updated: Friday, August 04, 2017 03:32 PM EDT
NEW YORK — Less than an hour after a U.S. jury convicted Martin Shkreli of securities fraud, the so-called “Pharma Bro” was back at his New York City apartment doing what comes naturally: trash talking in a live-stream on YouTube.
The brash former pharmaceutical CEO, who’s still out on bail, joked he won’t be going to a hard-core prison — “No shanks” — and predicted his acquittal on some charges Friday will help him recover tens of millions of dollars he claims he’s owed from a drug company he started.
“It doesn’t seem like life will change much for Martin Shkreli,” he said while drinking a beer and playing with his cat. “I’m one of the richest New Yorkers there is, and after today’s verdict, it’s going to stay that way.”
Shkreli’s trolling of his own trial has amused some onlookers. But legal experts say it could have serious consequences when it comes time for sentencing.
“No real good can come from going on YouTube after a guilty verdict,” said Robert Mintz, a former federal prosecutor now in private practice. “This is exactly the kind of behaviour that got him in trouble in the first place.”
U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto likely will factor in any lack of remorse and contrition at sentencing in federal court in Brooklyn, said Matthew Schwartz, a defence lawyer and former federal prosecutor who once worked for a Securities and Exchange Commission task force.
“Going into the trial, he had an audience of 12. Now he’s got an audience of one,” Schwartz said, referring to the jury and judge. “He’s putting himself at great risk for a higher sentence.”
The 34-year-old defendant faces up to 20 years in prison for his conviction on the most serious counts, though the term could be much lower under sentencing guidelines. Shkreli’s lawyer, Ben Brafman, said he would argue for no jail time. No sentencing date was set.
Shkreli was arrested in 2015 on charges he looted a drug company he founded, Retrophin, of $11 million in stock and cash to pay back investors in two failed hedge funds he ran. Investors took the witness stand to accuse him of keeping them in the dark as his scheme unfolded, while the defence argued there wasn’t any harm done because all of them got rich off of Retrophin stock.
Before his arrest, Shkreli was best known for buying the rights to a life-saving drug at another company in 2014 and promptly raising the price from $13.50 to $750 per pill. He also had a reputation for attacking critics on social media and was barred from Twitter for posts about a female journalist.
Even during his trial, when most criminal defendants would lay low, Shkreli stayed online commenting about his own case.
After the verdict, Brafman once again raised hopes he could reign in his client.
“There is an image issue that Martin and I are going to be discussing in the next several days. Martin is a brilliant young man, but sometimes people skills don’t translate well,” he said.
Not much later, Shkreli’s was on YouTube, answering questions about the case and cracking jokes. During his lengthy livestream, he invited one reporter up to his apartment to ask him questions on camera.
“Ben probably wants me to act and look like your average CEO, but I’m a very individualistic person and I don’t sort of conform to what folks want me to do and not want me to do, and that’s what being an individual is all about,” he said. “”As long as it doesn’t interfere with the legal case, it’s my life to live.“
Without more conformity, Shkreli’s lawyer will have his work cut out for him trying convince the court that he should be cut some slack as “someone who is not entirely normal,” said Schwartz, the former prosecutor. “Whether the judge will buy it or not is another question.”
The judge’s last words to the defendant as she left the bench offered no clues.
“I wish you well, Mr. Shkreli,” she said. “See you soon.”

Yes and no. This is also what happens when Obama was so desperate to get his ACA passed that he gave Big Pharma free reign on drug pricing to get them aboard.

Pharma Bro Martin Shkreli has bail revoked, heads to jail for Hillary Clinton threat
Tom Hays, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK — A judge jailed former pharmaceuticals company CEO Martin Shkreli on Wednesday after finding that he violated his bail on a securities fraud conviction with a social media posting she agreed posed a threat to Hillary Clinton.
Defence 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 humour, saying the offer could be taken seriously by fellow Clinton detractors.
The Clinton offer could be viewed as “a solicitation of an assault,” the judge said before revoking Shkreli’s $5 million bail.
“This is not protected by the First Amendment,” the judge said. “... There’s a risk that somebody may take him up on it.”
The government had told the judge that the message had alarmed the Secret Service detail that protects Clinton, a Democratic former presidential candidate and first lady. It also argued that it fit a pattern of veiled threats against female journalists who rebuffed Shkreli’s social media advances and of taunts aimed at prosecutors in his case.
On Monday, Shkreli, often called the Pharma Bro, wrote to the court apologizing for his behaviour, saying, “I am not a violent person.”
But for the judge, it was too little, too late.
“He doesn’t have to apologize to me,” she said. “He should apologize to the government, the Secret Service and Hillary Clinton.”
Shkreli watched in silence as the hearing unfolded and sometimes put his head down and appeared to scribble notes. After the judge’s ruling, he remained expressionless as deputy U.S. marshals led him out a side door of the courtroom without handcuffing him.
Defence attorney Ben Brafman said outside court he was disappointed in the judge’s decision.
“We believe the court arrived at the wrong decision, but she’s the judge and right now we will have to live with this decision,” he said.
Shkreli, who is best known for hiking up the price of a life-saving drug and for trolling his critics on social media, was found guilty last month on charges, unrelated to the price-fixing scandal, that he cheated investors in two failed hedge funds he ran. The defence had argued that investors got their original investments back and even made hefty profits.
Since his 2015 arrest, Shkreli’s attorneys have tried and failed to get him to tone down online antics they feared would taint his jury and, after his conviction, hurt his chances for a lenient sentence by giving the court the impression he wasn’t taking his situation seriously. Along with the Clinton flap, reports surfaced that he was trying to auction off what he claims is a one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album he bought for $2 million.
For now, Shkreli will await his Jan. 16 sentencing at a federal jail in an industrial part of Brooklyn instead his Manhattan apartment, which was a familiar backdrop for his live-streamed bluster. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison, though the term could end up being shorter under federal sentencing guidelines.
The government sought to get Shkreli locked up as a danger to the community amid the fallout from his social media post, which read: “The Clinton Foundation is willing to KILL to protect its secrets. So on HRC’s 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 defence insisted it was merely a tasteless joke comparable to some of President Donald Trump’s derisive comments.
“Indeed, in the current political climate, dissent has unfortunately often taken the form of political satire, hyperbole, parody or sarcasm,” the defence’s court papers said. “There is a difference, however, between comments that are intended to threaten or harass and comments — albeit offensive ones — that are intended as political satire or strained humour.”
