Bernie Sanders doesn’t want loot from Turing Pharma, thanks #HIV #AIDS
Remember that schmuck Alan Shkreli, the douchebag CEO of Turning pharmaceuticals? He’s the one who raised the cost of the AIDS drug Daraprim by 5500% and essentially told everybody to go pound salt if they didn’t like it.
Karma has struck out to him and keeps on hitting. He’s being investigated for being a very bad boy thanks to his greed and the NY Attorney General wants to find out if his moves violated antitrust laws.
Also this week, Shkreli donated to Bernie Sander’s campaign the maximum amount and you know what? Sanders decided he didn’t want the money and donated to a LGBT health clinic:
The entrepreneur had told Stat News that he’d donated $2,700 to the Sanders campaign last month – the maximum possible contribution.
However, if he was expecting it to win him favour with the left-wing Senator, Shkreli will be disappointed.
A spokesperson for the candidate confirmed that Sanders has rejected the money – and given it to the Whitman-Walker health clinic, which provides HIV/AIDS care and lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender care in Washington.
The spokesperson said: “We are not keeping the money from this poster boy for drug company greed.”
Shkreli had fumed previously of Sanders: “I think it’s cheap to use one person’s action as a platform without kind of talking to that person.
“He’ll take my money, but he won’t engage with me for five minutes to understand this issue better.”
