I Knew I Should Have Become a Chiropractor

Now, I've admitted on several occasions to being rather gullible, but come on. I can't tell if I'm more surprised that people fell for these ploys or that the perpetrators actually had the balls to try it. I also wonder how many times they had to try to get someone to think it was reasonable. Two stories:
OCTOBER 19--A Michigan chiropractor has had his license suspended after state investigators charged that he fondled two teenagers after telling the girls that their breasts were "uneven" and in need of adjustment. In a complaint filed by the state's Department of Community Health, Robert Moore is accused of negligence and lack of moral character in connection with his care of the teens, both of whom worked for him at TLC chiropractor. The girls, aged 16 and 17 at the time of the 2003-2004 treatments, gave investigators detailed accounts of how Moore, 40, pawed them. Both noted that, as a condition of employment, Moore told them that they would have to submit to "spinal adjustments at the beginning and end of each work shift."
And of course this:

An Oregon woman whose doctor convinced her that he could cure her lower back pain by having sex with her is suing him and his medical clinic for $4 million, according to legal documents obtained on Monday.

The doctor, Randall Smith, who was 50 at the time, was stripped of his license and sent to jail for 60 days last year for charging the state's Oregon Health Plan $5,000 for his 45-minute "treatments" involving the woman.

Just a little hint to any ladies out there who might have someone try this line on them. There isn't any ailment, disease or injury that you will EVER have that will be treated by having the doctor reenact his favorite porno scenes with you. Fellas, if a doctor suggests something similar to you, hey it MIGHT work.

Update -- Missed this one that Ace caught.
