Disgraced Ex-Pharma CEO Martin Shereki Injects Himself Into Epipen PR Meltdown

Disgraced Ex-Pharma CEO Martin Shereki Injects Himself Into Epipen PR Meltdown (0)

Shkreli — who famously insulted members of Congress earlier this year but refused to testify officially over his own decision to increase the price of a life-saving pill — is now hopping at the chance to defend generic drug manufacturer Mylan. He may even have opened the door to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, where he previously cited his Fifth Amendment's right to avoid incriminating himself. "Any chance i can come through this time and actually testify?" he tweeted Thursday in a post directed at the committee's Democrats. All of this now paves an unlikely new friendship between Shkreli and Mylan CEO Heather Bresch. Heather Bresch created about $15 billion in value for Mylan in the seven years since she stepped up as president of the company. A big part of that value add came from her talent for repackaging off-the-shelf drugs into bona fide blockbusters.
