TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas physician, who is attempting to unseat three-term Sen. Pat Roberts in the Republican primary, is apologizing for posting graphic images of gunshot victims to his Facebook page.
Radiologist Milton Wolf said it was insensitive and inappropriate to have posted the X-ray images and macabre commentary on social media a few years ago. The Topeka Capital-Journal said the X-rays came from various hospitals.
In a statement, Wolf said he removed the images from his Facebook page years ago.
Wolf claims that Roberts of trying to smear him by making the x-rays an issue of the campaign. In response, Roberts' campaign said the news report of the incident "speaks for itself."
Several tea party and conservative groups support Wolf.
Roberts has won his past elections handily.
