Chiropractor Backing Romney Expands Empire on $23,000 Patients

After a Jeep crashed into her Geo Metro in Clearwater, Florida, in 2009, Kathleen Weston’s back and neck hurt. So she called 1-800-ASK-GARY, a medical-referral service advertised on local television.

Weston was directed to Physician’s Group, a chain of clinics founded by Gary Kompothecras, a chiropractor who has grown wealthy and gained prominence in Florida catering to car-accident victims. Earlier this month, capping years of political activity, Kompothecras was named a co-chair of presidential contender Mitt Romney’s Florida finance team.
