Martin Shkreli has veered from loathsome Pharma bro to insane Hillary Clinton conspiracy theorist

Martin "Pharma Bro" Shkreli is offering $5,000 to anyone who manages to "grab a hair" from Hillary Clinton while she is on tour for her new memoir, What Happened. Posting on Facebook, Shkreli, 34, claimed he needed to "confirm the sequences I have" and said the payment would come "after the sequence matches."

"'I went to jail because Martin Shkreli paid me to pull Hillary Clinton's hair' would be just an intergalactic, epochal self-own," tweeted Fast Company's Joe Berkowitz.

The former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, Shkreli was convicted of securities fraud in August. The court reportedly had some trouble finding a jury for the trial, Harper's Magazine reports, with potential jurors blurting admissions such as "I'm aware of the defendant and I hate him."
