'Pharma bro' issues apology letter for alleged threat against Hillary Clinton

By AARON KATERSKY • Sep 13, 2017, 11:01 AM ET

Convicted ex-pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli said today his appeal to his social media followers to “grab” Hillary Clinton’s hair was an “awkward attempt at humor or satire” and was not the threat federal prosecutors allege.

Shkreli conceded he used “poor judgment” when he offered $5,000 to anyone who could “grab a hair from her” during Clinton’s tour to promote her new book. Prosecutors said it was part of Shkreli’s “escalating pattern of threats and harassment” against Clinton and they asked that his bail be revoked.

Shkreli said threatening Clinton was never his intention.

“I used poor judgment,” Shkreli wrote in a letter to the court, “but never contended to cause alarm or promote any act of violence whatsoever.”

4. It boggles the mind that such pieces of excrement can amass $10, less the money to buy a company.

Right now, it would make me feel better to see him reduced to holding a sign on a exit ramp.
