Trump Pick in Ohio Slammed as ‘Swampiest Swamp Creature’

  Trump Pick in Ohio Slammed as ‘Swampiest Swamp Creature’ He’s the Trump-annointed candidate running to make the Columbus suburbs MAGA again. But while former energy lobbyist Mike Carey is happy to tout the former president’s endorsement in the GOP primary, he’s not quite as eager to talk about his proximity to one of Ohio’s most expensive corruption scandals. Carey’s campaign website touts him as an “outsider” who “spent his career holding politicians accountable and fighting for working class families.” But it only vaguely mentions his “20+ year career as an executive in the American energy industry.

An Ohio hospital placed two employees on administrative leave this week after admitting the wrong patient received a kidney transplant earlier this month.

"We have offered our sincerest apologies to these patients and their families," University Hospitals in Cleveland spokesperson George Stamatis said in a statement. "We recognize they entrusted us with their care. The situation is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to helping patients return to health and live life to the fullest."

The kidney given to the wrong patient is compatible and the recipient is expected to recover, the hospital said. The surgery for the intended recipient has been delayed. Officials did not say if another kidney was available. No additional details were released about the patients.

Ohio ‘incel’ accused of plotting to ‘slaughter’ women at Ohio university

  Ohio ‘incel’ accused of plotting to ‘slaughter’ women at Ohio university A 21-year-old man in Ohio, who self-identified as an ‘incel, or involuntary celibate,’ was charged Wednesday for allegedly plotting a mass “slaughter” of women at a university in Ohio, prosecutors said. Fox 19 reported that Tres Genco is accused of conducting surveillance at an unnamed university in Ohio on Jan. 15, 2020, and on the same day he searched "planning a shooting crime" and "when does preparing for a crime become an attempt?" The station pointed out that investigators say they uncovered a manifesto that claimed he would kill "out of hatred, jealousy and revenge.


While it fluctuates, the average time spent on the kidney waitlist can be five to 10 years, according to UCLA Health, and there are more than 100,000 patients on the list in the U.S.

Patients can shorten their wait through a living donation from a compatible relative or friend.

Stamatis continued, "The University Hospitals Transplant Program is comprised of a highly qualified, multidisciplinary team of experts with decades of transplant care delivery and research experience. We are dismayed that an error recently occurred resulting in one patient receiving a kidney intended for another," WOIO-TV in Cleveland reported.

The hospital said officials were carefully reviewing the incident to make sure it never happens again. The mistake happened on July 2, according to WKYC-TV in Cleveland.

Officials have notified the United Network for Organ Sharing, the organization that manages the national organ transplant system, of the incident.

Heather Mekesa, the COO of an organ procurement organization in northeast Ohio, told WKYC that type of mistake is rare.


"This is not the norm, I'd say 99.99 percent of the time, everything does go well," she told the station. "In the last two decades, this has not occurred in Ohio. This was a very unfortunate and not a great incident to occur but it shouldn't deter people who want to help others through the gift of organ donation."
