The head of a pharmaceutical company, who partnered with the Clinton Foundation, has increased the price of an auto-injector used to treat opioid overdoses by 680 percent over the course of three years.

Spencer Williamson, the president and chief executive officer of the Richmond, Virginia-based Kaleo Pharmaceuticals, is under fire after the price of a two-pack of Evzio, a device that treats life-threatening opioid overdoses, skyrocketed from $690 in 2014 to $4,500 today.

Thirty-one Democratic senators are now demanding answers on the price hike.


  1. It would be interesting to know, since the company's CEO is a partner with the Clinton (crime) Foundation, how much of the price increase found its way into his pockets and how much was a "donation" to the Clinton's "charitable" (cough, cough, vomit) Foundation.
