Controversial pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli is off to prison after having his bail revoked. Shkreli's bail was revoked after he made a Facebook post offering to pay someone $5,000 to get a piece of Hillary Clinton's hair at one of her book signings. Shkreli maintains that this was a joke and was not meant to be taken seriously.
Still, a judge ruled that he was a danger to the community and revoked his $5 million bail. Shkreli faces up to 20 years in prison for securities fraud.
