Is Shkreli an alias?

This clown can not be real.

The "greed is good" Wall Street Poster Child who was being praised by the likes of Reuters and Bloomberg for his "skills" was caught red handed with his hands in the Cookie Jar and hauled away by the Feds never to be jeered at again.

Martin Shkreli, the drug executive who was widely criticized for sharply raising the price of a drug used by HIV patients, was arrested Thursday by federal agents on charges that he misused funds at the company he founded.

Shkreli entered a not guilty plea and was released on a $5 million bond, according to the Associated Press. His travel is restricted to parts of New York and he surrendered his passport, CNBC reports. Shkreli's next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 20.

The charges were first reported by both Reuters and Bloomberg — which only yesterday was reporting on Shkreli's skills at short selling. Today, he's accused of executing a series of frauds against investors, from October of 2009 to March of 2014.
