Is disgraced Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes a sociopath?
That is the question asked by Vanity Fair's Nick Bilton - as Holmes is now traipsing around Silicon Valley looking to fund her new venture, despite very publicly committing fraud (according to the SEC). Let's review how Holmes became "disgraced":
Lied to Walgreens, using "completely false test results from their blood tests"
When the CFO of Theranos found out about the falsified tests, Holmes fired him on the spot
Holmes told investors that they were going to rake in $100 million in revenue in 2014 despite being on track for $100,000 that year
Holmes lied about a contract between Theranos and the Department of Defense - telling people her technology was being used on the battlefield (it wasn't)
She also lied about her education, financial situation, and the impact she would have on the world
