Former drug company executive Martin Shkreli, aka, Pharma Bro, on September 4th posted a Facebook message offering a $,5000 reward for a strand of Clinton's hair. That prompted an investigation from the US Secret Service. US District Judge, Kiyo Matsumoto, in Brooklyn, said the Facebook post showed Shkreli posed a danger to the public and on Wednesday, revoked his $5 million bail.
