A chiropractor in the small town of Lamoni, Iowa, has had his license pulled after being accused of trading services for sex with clients and for performing exorcisms, reports KCCI.

Dr. Charles Manuel voluntarily surrendered his license after the Iowa Board of Chiropractic accused him of unethical conduct.

According to the board, Manuel “bartered sex for services with some of these patients” and “performed exorcisms as part of his chiropractic treatment of patients.” The board also stated that Manuel had instructed some of his patients to stop taking their prescribed medications.

Dr. Bryan Nowlin, who shared his office Manuel, claimed he was unaware of what was going on between the doctor and his patients, saying, “We didn’t notice any of that stuff while he was here.”

Members of the community were shocked by the revelations, with Robert Jackson who lives across the street from the chiropractic office expressing surprise at tales of exorcism.

“That’s ridiculous, I mean an exorcism?” he said. “It’s extremely scary. I’m appalled that it was going on exactly right across the street from where I’m staying. I don’t know, I’m baffled.”

According to the state board, Manuel has agreed to not apply for reinstatement for ten years.

Trump's fundraising and digital operations are humming, buoyed in part by his acquittal at the Senate trial which refused to remove him from office for soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 elections and obstructing the House's investigation of it.

Responding to a 'Meet the Press" clip of the president making his accusation, Schiff tweeted back: "Nice deflection, Mr. President. But your false claims fool no one. You welcomed Russian help in 2016, tried to coerce Ukraine’s help in 2019, and won’t protect our elections in 2020. Now you fired your intel chief for briefing Congress about it. You’ve betrayed America. Again."
