Why should this crook be allowed to continue practicing if he is dishonest? He could be double billing or frauding medicare on top of what he is doing....

The real question is: whether chiropractic is itself a fraud.

"Attorney General Lori Swanson" Remember that name, and make sure this politician (not lawyer) is thrown out next election.

There is NO evidence that chiro does anything for anybody. It is a fraud pseudo science. All the explanations for how chiro works were made up to defend the practice.

Chiropractic was invented in 1895 by Daniel D. Palmer, a layperson in Davenport, Iowa [1]. Because he sold goldfish commercially, Palmer is referred to by some historians as a "fish monger." It is more interesting to know that he practiced magnetic healing beginning in the mid-1880s in Burlington, Iowa. Palmer searched for the single cause of all disease.

One has to wonder if the Chiropractic board actually watches over chiropractors. Look at the ads in the newspapers. Some of these chiropractors are saying they can cure/prevent cancer, get rid of kidney stones, and cure other diseases. One chiropractor lost his license and now has an unlicensed "pastoral" practice. Are they not supposed to filter out the "quacks"?

What is “dangerous” is the belief and expectation that the Attorney General will represent the decisions of an independent government agency verses representing the common good of the people/public. The office of the Minnesota Attorney General deserves credit for their contributions and actions.
