Senate hopeful in hot water over Facebook posts

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas radiologist who is seeking to unseat U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts acknowledges making a mistake when he posted gruesome X-ray images of fatal gunshot wounds and medical injuries to his Facebook page years ago, but he blames Roberts for making them public.

The Topeka Capital-Journal ( reports health professionals in Kansas and Missouri criticized Milton Wolf’s postings and commentary on the social media site layered with macabre jokes and descriptions of carnage.

Wolf, a Republican who has been endorsed by the tea party in his campaign against the longtime GOP incumbent, says he uploaded the images for educational purposes and to demonstrate the evil lurking in the world.

Officials at Kansas City-area hospitals on both sides of the state line have called the postings inappropriate.
