Early October Jezebel reported This medical research, led by Pennsylvania Republican Senate nominee Dr. Mehmet Oz, led to the death of 31 pigs, 661 rabbits and rodents and 329 dogs, including a litter of puppies – and excruciating torture before her death. Oz’s team at Columbia University published 75 studies between 1989 and 2010, based on data from experiments involving 1,027 live test animals. Oz was the lead investigator on those studies, meaning he was responsible for them.
according to a Washington Post report published on Tuesday, Oz called his former supervisor — Columbia’s chief of cardiac surgery, Eric Rose — about three weeks ago asked him to explain publicly that Oz was not responsible for the alleged animal abuse. rose refused thistells the post it felt like the candidate was asking for a political favor.
Rose revealed herself to that post that his relationship with Oz “soured” about three years ago and that he is opposed to Oz’s political views and donated $165 to Democratic candidate Lt. gov. John Fetterman, donated.
in the Telephone interview with Jezebel later on Tuesday, Rose said that Oz hadn’t contacted him in years before he got in touch regarding reports on his studies of pup killing. “[Oz] wanted a letter from me saying he never set foot in the lab, he didn’t push any animals around and it was all the vet’s fault,” Rose told Jezebel. The vet working on Oz’s research was him important whistleblower who alerted the USDA to violations of the Animal Welfare Act in Oz’s research in the early 2000s.
said Rose Oz should have “just owned a piece of this”.
“He should have said, ‘Yes, it was my lab. I was the PI [primary investigator]. I didn’t know that was happening,” Rose said.
According to Rose, during his phone call with Oz, the Senate candidate repeatedly tried to persuade him to release such a letter to support his political campaign, calling for more extreme Republicans like Mastriano and former President Donald Trump doesn’t reflect his Party. “He told me Mastriano was behind 20% in the polls, which I can’t make up for because I’ve never looked at a single poll,” Rose recalled. The newest Survey show Josh Shapiro, Democratic nominee for governor Mastriano by about 9%.
dr Charles Stolar, a pediatric surgeon at Columbia, who corroborated Rose’s claims the postHe told Jezebel in a phone interview that Oz was “full of shit” and “a total phony”.
“Now watching him explain things he doesn’t know about – he was a pretty good surgeon, his patients liked him, I’ll give him that. He was a good doctor when he was a doctor,” Stolar said. “But to hear him explain anything that has to do with government policy, history, anything – he has no idea what he’s talking about.”
Oz’s Senate campaign did not immediately respond to Jezebel’s Request for comment on Rose and Stolar’s claims.
Oz campaign spokeswoman Brittany Yanick confirmed that Oz called. “Oz, along with several other doctors, approached Dr. Rose to ask for their support in setting the record straight.” She added, “Doctors from his Columbia days offered words of support, and some expressed their support in writing.”
