Martin Shkreli bound for jail after judge revokes his $5M bail

Martin Shkreli got socked into jail Wednesday when a federal judge delivered a poetic punchline to the Pharma Bro’s own Hillary Clinton jokes.

Brooklyn Federal Judge Kiyo Matsumoto revoked Shkreli’s $ 5 million bail Wednesday evening, saying Shkreli’s $ 5,000 bounty on Clinton’s hair was the final straw.

Shkreli was convicted in August on securities fraud and conspiracy to commit securities fraud. He’ll now have to fight the case on the inside.

Bye, bro.

Bye, bro.

Prosecutors pointed to the posts as Shkreli becoming more and more of a threat to the community after his split verdict.

Shkreli said the posts — which sparked a Secret Service investigation — were all just a joke, and he meant no harm.
