Gruesome X-rays, jokes don’t just hurt Wolf politically

Wolf,MiltonMilton Wolf may not just be in political trouble because he posted online and joked about gruesome X-ray images. He may also be in professional trouble. Wolf, a Leawood radiologist who is challenging Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., in the GOP primary, said he posted the X-rays of gunshot fatalities and medical injuries to his Facebook page “several years ago.” After the Topeka Capital-Journal reported on the postings and Wolf’s jokes about the images, Wolf apologized, calling his actions a mistake. But even if voters forgive him, the medical community might not. “Absent any legitimate educational purpose or context, this is not ethical behavior,” said Jerry Slaughter, executive director of the Kansas Medical Society.
