Anti-Hugin protesters back at Celgene

By David Wildstein

As Celgene employees go home for the night, they’ll see a large group of protesters bashing former CEO and likely U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin.

This is the second time a group of activists stood outside the pharmaceutical giant’s corporate headquarters in Summit taking aim at Hugin, Donald Trump, and the sometimes unpopular drug industry.  The protesters are handing out fliers detailing Hugin’s contributions to Trump, former Gov. Chris Christie and other Republican candidates.

Protesters again called attention to Celgene’s recent settlement of a lawsuit alleging that they made billions by fraudulently marketing a cancer drug without FDA approval.  The company where Hugin serves as executive chairman reportedly settled that suit last summer for $280 million.

The 63-year-old Hugin announced his retirement from Celgene last week and Republican sources say his formal entry into the race against Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Menendez is imminent.
