Feds probing whether Martin Shkreli has been running his company from prison
19 replies, posted
Federal authorities said Friday they are investigating claims that Martin Shkreli has been running his pharmaceutical company from behind bars using a contraband smartphone.
The U.S. Bureau of Prisons told The Associated Press it has opened an inquiry into whether the man nicknamed the "Pharma Bro" violated prison rules forbidding inmates from
conducting business and possessing cellphones.
Shkreli, 35, is serving a seven-year sentence for securities fraud at the Federal Correctional Institution at Fort Dix, New Jersey, a low-security prison complex about 40 miles (65
kilometers) from Philadelphia. He was found guilty of lying to investors in two failed hedge funds and cheating them out of millions.
The Wall Street Journal reported this week that Shkreli has used a cellphone to call the shots at his drug company, Phoenixus AG, posting regularly to social media and even firing the
company's chief executive a few weeks ago.
posting regularly to social media
How fucking retarded do you have to be
He is a egomaniac, of course he can't keep his head down.

Considering it was illegal of Shkreli to conduct business, couldn't the CEO have simply ignored his instructions? Like just say "lol, no" because he shouldn't have had that power anyway?
Funny how that came out right after he fired his chief executive.
It's almost like when you treat people badly, they have no reason to keep protecting you
Possibly, but then what's Shkreli going to do when he gets out?
Fire him later? That's years to have a job and prove some worth.
I'm guessing the CEO would have had plenty of time to cash out those fat paychecks and then retire with a golden parachute some time before Shkreli gets out of prison.
He's going to be coming for them with a baseball bat!
Maybe he'll get bumped up to a medium security prison for abusing their trust.
You guys remember the Shkreli defence squad we had around here a couple years ago? Wonder where they got to.
Ya'll act like the ultra-rich are all idiots and like you know how to do what they do better than they do it; if he was fired and accepted the firing, then he did it for a reason.
The saddest/funniest part is that they basically only liked him because "he makes good memes tho"
That was fast.
I'm literally not defending him at all, read my post again. I was saying that the guy that stepped down did it for a reason.
You aren't smart just for saying "there will be other opinions"
He's Albanian, or at least part, of course he fucking is.
Anyone from this part of the world would do the same
He's not from there tho, he was born in New York.
Yes, but people still refuse to believe that character is heritable as well.
