Hold Martin Shkreli Accountable for His Disrespectful Behavior and Immoral Price Gouging
Here’s what Martin Shkreli — the notoriously petulant Wall Street millionaire who took over the life-saving medication Daraprim then jacked up its price 5,456% overnight — said after being escorted from the U.S. Capitol following his “testimony” this morning at a congressional hearing on Big Pharma’s price gouging:
“Hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government.”
Shkreli — who couldn’t even be bothered to wear a suit and tie to the hearing — took the fifth in response to almost every question asked of him.
And all the while, he smirked, rolled his eyes and twirled pencils even as highly esteemed members of Congress like Rep. Elijah Cummings implored him to do the right thing.
