GOP Candidate Allegedly Joked About Gunshot Patients’ X-Rays on Facebook

Source: Mediaite

GOP candidate for U.S. Senate Milton Wolf responded to charges that he posted X-rays of injured gunshot patients on social media and joked about them. Wolf, who says he is a distant relation of President Barack Obama and is the author of First, Do No Harm: The President’s Cousin Explains Why His Hippocratic Oath Requires Him to Oppose ObamaCare, is challenging incumbent Senator Pat Roberts (R-KA) in Kansas’ GOP primary.

In one instance, Wolf posted an X-ray of a patient “decapitated” by gunfire. “One of my all-time favorites,” he wrote. “From my residency days there was a pretty active ‘knife and gun club’ at Truman Medical Center. What kind of gun blows somebody’s head completely off? I’ve got to get one of those.”

“It reminds (me) of the scene from Terminator 2,” he continued, “when they shoot the liquid metal terminator guy in the face at close range and it kind of splits him open temporarily almost like a flower blooming. We all find beauty in different things.”

In a separate instance Wolf joked about repositioning a murdered patient’s head for an X-ray of his fatal gunshot wound. “It’s not like the patient was going to complain,” he wrote. Topeka Capital-Journal’s Tim Carpenter alleged that according to the date of the posting and the comments, the X-ray was posted before the victim’s funeral. (Wolf refused to speculate on that.)

Video of the interview at the link.

Wolf said in response to another of the reporter's questions that his posting the x-rays was "an educational thing for people."

Only in the sense that he's teaching people that he's a psychopath.

2. It's who they are.

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you today's Republican Party:

"What kind of gun blows somebody’s head completely off? I’ve got to get one of those.”

And he's a doctor. An MD.

and this guy is definitely 'out of the closet.' If nothing else, his candidacy will bring out a lot more erstwhile 'closeted' sociopaths.

4. "The next Ted Cruz" - with an M.D.

http://www.miltonwolf.com/

MEET DR. MILTON WOLF

Milton Wolf is a doctor, not a politician.
He believes America must re-embrace the Constitution
and the divinely-inspired American Idea of individual liberty,
limited government and free-market values.

Want to drive Barack Obama crazy? Send his very own fearless
conservative cousin -- "the next Ted Cruz" -- to the
United States Senate!

9. TPM & Twitter: the Senate Conservatives Fund is defending Wolf against this "smear":

From TPM:

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/wolf-x-rays-serious-injuries

"For any doctor to make patient records public and then use the records for public discussion and entertainment is just unthinkable," (Pat Roberts') spokesman Leroy Towns said. "Allegations of such lack of judgment demand extensive scrutiny and investigation."

Wolf reponded to Roberts in a statement Saturday, according to the Capital-Journal.

"The attack will not only target me," Wolf said, "but will, through its implications, cast a wider net to vilify all doctors."

The Senate Conservatives Fund, which has endorsed Wolf, defended him on Sunday.


Those tweets from the SCF:

https://twitter.com/SCF/status/437614338619097088

Pat Roberts is trying to smear Dr. Wolf because Roberts doesn't live in Kansas anymore and lied to voters about it for years. #KSsen


https://twitter.com/SCF/status/437617461865611264

Pat Roberts is dropping like a rock in the polls and is now desperately trying to destroy the reputation of a good doctor. #KSsen



Of course it's Wolf who's destroying his own reputation.

And while it's true that Roberts hasn't lived in Kansas for years, Wolf obviously isn't living in reality (and yes, I know, this makes him an ideal Tea Party candidate).

21. Per Wikipedia

"Obama and Wolf are related through Thomas Creekmore McCurry (1850–1939), President Obama’s great-great-grandfather, and Wolf’s great-grandfather.[5] Obama's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, was Wolf's mother's cousin.[7] Obama's mother and Wolf's mother were friends in Wichita, Kansas, where the president’s mother, Ann Dunham, was born and spent part of her childhood.[8]"

His longing for a gun that completely blows a guy's head off should make him a very attractive candidate for them.

It's either that or finally allow Kansas to elect a decent senator by sending a Democrat.

Can you believe this absurd campaign photo for G.O.P. sociopath, Milton Wolf?

32. He's still a piece of shit, but prolly not a HIPAA violation if photos were de-identified

And if he did not have permission from the owner of the images then it could be a copyright violation of some sort.

37. The date and type of injury is easily identifiable.

I work at a CRO, and we have very stringent guidelines in order to be HIPAA compliant. Granted, I don't work on the medical side (I work as an analyst), but if the patient can be identified via date and type of injury, I'm sure that's a violation.

35. Of course you can report him on Facebook.

There are options for issuing complaints. I don't know how effective it is, but at least show there are consequences.

There's more than one Facebook page for him, by the way -- same guy, different listings.
