New Senate ad in controversy over old Facebook posts

(CNN) - Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas is launching a new TV commercial Wednesday that attacks his Republican primary challenger over old Facebook postings that included some "insensitive" comments.

"Dr. Milton Wolf's patients trusted him, but stunning news reports show that Wolf exposed private patient X-rays and other personal information on Facebook – where Wolf relentlessly poked fun at the dead or wounded. A Kansas City medical ethics expert called Wolf's behavior 'beyond alarming' for a professional in the field of medicine," says the narrator in the 30-second spot.
