By David Wildstein . . . Six members of the New Jersey Board of Chiropractic Examiners under fire for restoring a medical license to a convicted sex offender have resigned, an attorney representing the chiropractors said.

The resignations come six days after Gov. Phil Murphy announced that he was replacing Brett Wartenberg, Thomas Senatore and Paul Lyons on the state regulatory board.

The other three members — David Allen, Rosemary Calio and Albert Stabile – were on holdover status and in the process of being replaced.

That leaves the state Board of Chiropractic Examiners without a quorum until the Senate votes to confirm Murphy’s nominations of Kelly Blunder, Uchenna Abba Onyeani and Michael Kaufman. Murphy submitted the nominations of the three chiropractors last week.

Despite warnings from Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, the board voted to reinstate the license Dr. Bryan Bajakian, who in 2008 was convicted on charges of luring or enticing underage girls and illegally possessing a firearm.

Grewal sought to block his reinstatement, arguing the board relied on an improperly conducted psychosexual evaluation, but the board on Thursday shot down the attorney general’s motion.
