Lin Wood Says Veronica Wolski Died of 'Medical Malpractice' Like Herman Cain

Influential QAnon advocate Lin Wood has claimed former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain's and Greenville County Republican Party leader Pressley Stutts' COVID-19 deaths were also due to "medical malpractice", after accusing a Chicago hospital of the "medical murder" of a conspiracy theorist by not treating her virus with ivermectin.

Wood, a pro-Donald Trump lawyer who is facing sanctions for his dismissed lawsuits claiming the 2020 election was rigged, was one of the main spearheads of a harassment campaign against the Amita Health Resurrection Medical Center prior to the death of QAnon supporter Veronica Wolski.

Wolski died early Monday morning, weeks after being admitted to the hospital with COVID-19.

While announcing her death in Telegram, Wood accused the hospital of committing the "medical murder" of Wolski for refusing to treat her COVID-19 with ivermectin, a drug which has not been officially approved, and advised against as a COVID-19 treatment by both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

In a follow-up post in Telegram, Wood has now suggested that both the deaths of Cain and Stutts were also as a result of malpractice.

Cain, 74, died of COVID-19 in late July after frequently refusing to wear a mask in public. He learned he contracted the virus nine days after attending a Trump rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Stutts, 64, died of COVID-19 in August having previously spoken out against vaccine mandates.

"Herman Cain was my client and close friend. Pressley Stutts was my close friend and worked closely with me on my campaign for Chair of the SCGOP," Wood wrote.

"I knew Veronica Wolski only on Telegram and recognized her to be a fine person and Patriot who cherished TRUTH and freedom.

"I believe that all three of these individuals may have died as the result of medical malpractice. My opinion is based on my almost 20 years of legal work representing plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases."

Wood adds that he sometimes refers to the "intentional medical malpractice" as murder in order to emphasize the "egregious" incidents.

Wood says such statements are protected under a legal defense known as rhetorical hyperbole, or statements that use exaggerated and sometimes confrontational language in order to emphasize a point.

"I certainly do not claim to know ALL things, but I know the law on medical malpractice and the lawful expression of speech under our First Amendment that allows a robust exchange of ideas in our country," Wood said.

While Wolski was battling the virus, which she contracted after boasting about never wearing masks or taking the vaccine, Wood and several other leading QAnon figures called on their followers to call the hospital and demand that Wolski get treated with the ivermectin, an anti-parasitic treatment used in both humans and livestock which is not used to treat COVID.

Wood urged his 800,000 followers on Telegram to call the hospital and demand they treat Wolski with ivermectin, and posted a video of himself doing so just hours before her death.

The harassment campaign led to the hospital receiving hundreds of calls from QAnon supporters, some of which were threatening violence.

In a previous statement to Newsweek, Olga Solares, spokeswoman for Amita Health Resurrection Medical Center, said: "We can confirm that this patient passed away early this morning.

"We will not be providing any additional comment about this patient or topic."
